Fieldthistle- if you are in the Dallas Metro area- there is a lunch only place that serves salads, sandwiches and quiche- every day is a different type of quiche. They are in Richardson and Addison- name is Cafe Max.

I like it and still make it but very basic, crumbled bacon, sliced onion, chunks of ham and cheese(Lorraine?). I like the idea of carmelizing the onions, what a good tip.

The was a restuarant in Bloomington, IN back the 70's and early 80s called the Tao. The cookbook from there (The Tao of Cooking) is regarded as one of the best vegetarian cookbooks of all time and is still in print I believe from Indiana University press. Anyways, they have several quiche recipes with the absolute best being the zuchini quiche.

1 pastry shell
2 TBSP oil
1 tsp finely chopped garlic
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
2 tsp flour
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup cream
1/2 tsp salt
pinch pepper
1/2 cup grated swiss cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Pre-bake the shell at 350 for 15 min with pie weight or foil and beans

Heat oil add garlic and onions and cook for 3-4 min.
Add zucchini and cook gently 5-8 minutes. Stir in flour.

Beat eggs in bowl. Add milk, cream, salt, pepper and blend well.

Stir in zucchini and cheeses.

Pour into pie shell bake in preheated 350 oven 40-45 minutes

BelleReve, thanks for posting. I always believed that the carmelized onion, layered directly onto the parbaked shell, was the secret to the "scrumptuous factor"


Hatteras thank you for posting the recipe !!!

Frittatas are very good also; and a bit easier to make, IMO.

Hey Tommy B we made your crab quiche recipe tonight for Christmas Eve and it was great!  We served it with strawberries on the side.  The onions on the bottom were wonderful!

I would if I could find a decent, generous one like they used to make back in the "fern bar" era of the '70's - '80's.
 
Hell, I'd even have a spinach salad and a glass of white wine with it!
 
The only place I know where quiche is dependently available is a Texas chain with outposts in NOLA, Atlanta, and WDC Metro: la Madeleine ( http://www.lamadeleine.com/ ) but their serving is puny, dry, and mostly crust; they must use "special eggs" that cost $3. @!  This place frustrates the Hell out of me with a menu and ambiance that makes my mouth water yet serves portions that make my stomach growl.  At least the unit whose premises I own pays their rent on time.

I used to make quiche at a couple of different places back in the 80's.
I used a spring form pan with puff pastry as the crust.
The base was the same for all, eggs, cream,bit of nutmeg, s&p, bit of flour and an appropriate cheese.
Dungeness crab & asparagus was always a winner, along with the classic Lorraine.
Spinach, bacon, potato & gruyerre was also a good seller.
 
I made five of them a while back for a friend to take to a brunch pot luck, she said it was one of the few things that ran out........
I think there are a lot of closet quiche eaters out there!

I've not had quiche in a number of years, but I used to love lobster and crab quiches. There's a place in Upper Arlington, Ohio, Easy Living, that used to have wonderful quiches for take-out. Football fans may have heard of the place if they watched any Ohio State games broadcast by Brent Musburger. He goes there every time he's in Columbus. The owner is a former kicker for Ohio State, Vlade Janakievski

I've had a Paula Deen recipe that used shredded hash browns for the crust very good. I'd eat the whole thing. I hate the word quiche though, so I call it an egg pie.

i make quiche pretty frequently when i visit my 93 year old grandmother. she mostly has a diet of candy, but she'll always eat for me, and quiche is a great way to get a bunch of veggies into her.  the best so far has been swiss chard from the garden with goat cheese

I'm no professional chef, nor do I aspire to be, but this is good slop:
12 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled (that's about a pound, or 2 ounces if you get it already cooked like I do)
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (4 oz)
1/3 cup chopped onion (I like just a half teaspoon of jalapeno here, too, but you may not)
3/4 cup Original Bisquick® mix
1 1/2  cups milk (here's a good place to mix some non fat dry and stick to a budget)
3  eggs
1/8  teaspoon pepper
1 Heat oven to 400°F. Grease 9-inch glass pie plate. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion into pie plate.
2 In medium bowl, beat remaining ingredients until blended; pour into pie plate.
3 Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Been thinking what to have this weekend. This thread has inspired me. Sunday it's Corned Beef Quish with leftover St. Pats day Corned Beef.
That's the beauty of Quish - You can put almost anything in it!
Don't think a Sardine or Anchovie Quish would work

Corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese quiche with a swiss cheese cream sauce sounds good to me!
