Jenni’s Basil Quiche

When spring comes and our chickens start laying more, I get out my favorite egg recipes.

This is a great way to use up leftover veggies and extra produce. It’s a big hit in my house!

6 medium eggs, beaten (for large size, try 4-5)
2 1/2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
1 (9 inch) pie crust, lightly baked (I do 6-8 minutes at 400)

Sprinkle cheese on bottom of baked pie crust.

Pour over spinach and lightly stir so spinach is all wet and covered. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.

Top and crust should be lightly brown. Let sit for 10 minutes before eating.

Here are substitutes you can use for either the tomato or spinach:

If you love garlic, add 1 or 2 cloves to the egg mixture. If you like fluffier quiche, try 1/4 cup milk and 1-2 less eggs.

When adding extra veggies, you may need to extend cooking time by 5-15 minutes. Slide a knife in the middle and peek to the bottom. If you see liquid, cook longer in 5 minute increments.

These have all worked well for me.Jenni’s Basil Quiche - Screen shot 2016 06 22 at 11 - Jenni’s Basil Quiche

Enjoy!
