Great Quiche Recipes

Quiche is a great dish for breakfast or brunch. It also works great for a light lunch or dinner when served with a salad or fresh fruit. Following are three quiche recipes. One of these is sure to become a favorite for you.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle pastry shell with 1/2 cup of the cheese. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the eggs, soup, and milk. Pour mixture into crust, over the cheese. Cover edges of pie loosely with foil to prevent over browning. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese; bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted neare the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
