Simple Quiche Recipe

Long have I been on the search for a delicious Simple Quiche Recipe.

This particular simple quiche recipe came out very tasty and fluffy. Just the way I like it! The filling contains tomato, onion, feta and avocado. I am now a vegetarian but I am sure adding some chicken will make this recipe just as divine.

I have this wonderful cookbook back in South Africa, with the most yummy and simple quiche recipe but that’s the problem, its in South Africa in a box. My search on the web hasn’t brought up many results that I would try either.

My solution for this, make one from memory! Also as I do not have any already made pastry this recipe contains easy to make simple quiche dough base as an option.

simple quiche recipe eggs flourTo Make The Dough Base

  • 2 Cups flour
  • ¼ Cup oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Herbs of choice (mine has rosemary, thyme, paprika and garlic)
  • Water till right consistency
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder if you like a fluffy base
To Make The Filling
  • 6-8 Eggs
  • ¾ Cup milk or sour cream
  • ½ Cup cheese
  • Pinch of salt
  • Herbs of choice (I used 1tsp each of rosemary and thyme, as well as a dash of garlic, paprika and basil)
  • Choice of filling (avocado, onion, tomato, feta)
Optional Toppings
  • Extra ½ cup cheese
  • Tomato
  • Parsley


Cooking and Preparing:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375F (190C)
  2. Prepare dough or use a ready made pastry. Using the above recommended dough ingredients add some water until you get a good consistency.
  3. Spread, roll and press the dough out into a deep pan. Using some kind of lubricant at the bottom is advised. Flour, oil or spray and cook. (As you can see in the pictures I have used waxed paper in mine, this is just because my pan has started peeling and I have yet to buy a new one!)
  4. Beat the eggs, milk, salt and herbs.
  5. Add your filling to the egg mixture and pour into dough lined pan.
  6. Use some garnishes on the top or add some extra cheese.
  7. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 45 odd minutes or until browned and a knife inserted comes out clean.
  8. Serve with rice or salad.

This simple quiche recipe is a keeper! Even my fussy toddlers ate it and went in for seconds!

    I just love the versatility of quiches! And believe it or not, I’ve never had one with avocado, which one of my most favorite combos is eggs with avocados! Thank you for linking up to the Weekend Kitchen Link Party at Home Cooking Memories…hope to see you there again this weekend.

    I am sorry it took me so many days to say thank you for linking up to my party In and Out of the Kitchen! I love quiche and have had a “tried and true” recipe for many years. I will give your recipe a try though. It looks so good!

    I look forward to seeing what you bring to my party next week! It starts at 7:00 EST on Monday!

    I love quiche but my husband can’t stand eggs so I rarely make them. I think I’ll be adapting this (no grain/cheese) and putting it on the table soon!

    PS. I love your eggs, I wish my chickens laid dark brown eggs
