Thanksgiving Quiche Recipe
This quiche is a favorite at our house as a Saturday or Sunday breakfast / brunch dish. It also works well if you have a potluck dish you need to whip up quickly.
- 5 large eggs
- 2 1/2 -3 cups leftover stuffing
- 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (or any meltable cheese you have on hand)
- 1 cup diced cooked turkey
- 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions (optional)
- 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1 cup half and half
- Salt and pepper to taste
Beat one egg and add stuffing to it. Press this into the bottom of a deep pie dish or a quiche pan if you have one, it will serve as a mock-crust for your quiche. Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 15 minutes at 425 degrees F. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the stuffing-crust. Layer in the turkey, onion, mushrooms in any order you wish. Beat remaining 4 eggs in a small bowl. Stir in the half and half. Season with salt and pepper to your tastes. Pour egg mixture evenly over the layers in the pan. Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let it stand and cool for about 15 minutes to firm up before cutting and serving.
