Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 1/4 cups skim milk plus 1/3 cup dry milk powder mixed in
    3 large eggs
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Dash each pepper and nutmeg
    1 cup shredded lowfat cheddar cheese

    1 cup filling (not calculated)
    1 pie crust (not calculated)

Directions

First prepare your pie crust and fit it into a 9-inch pie plate. Get out a big bowl and a whisk. Pour the milk into the bowl. Crack the eggs into the bowl with the milk. Whisk the eggs and milk together until they are good and smooth. Add the salt, nutmeg and pepper and whisk again. The nutmeg is traditional, but optional.
Next, scatter the filling of choice (listed below) into the pie shell and top with cheese. Then carefully pour in the milk and egg mixture. Pat the cheese down into the egg mixture if need be. Bake the pie at 375 for about 45 minutes. It should be puffed and golden brown on top.


Filling Ideas:

Broccoli Cheddar Quiche: Use about 1 1/2 cups cooked chopped broccoli

For a classic Quiche Lorraine, use 1/3 to 1/2 cup bacon bits and a cup of swiss cheese instead of cheddar and maybe add a little sauted onion too.

1 cup chopped ham or turkey sausage is good plain or with cheddar.

Zucchini is good with mozzarella cheese.

Spinach, mushroom and parmesan make a wonderful quiche.

Experiment and make your own!
