looking for a quiche recipe....

Recommended Posts

Hi -

Does anyone have the quiche recipe where you mix the cornmeal and eggs all together and the cornmeal settles to the bottom to form the crust? Thanks. :)

Versatile Quiche Recipe

This is a great basic quiche recipe I adapted from one in American Whole Foods Cuisine. You can make lots of variations.

 

The original recipe was half of this. I make this amount in a deep 13 x 9 pan. Halve it and you can make it in a 9 x 9 (I've never done it in a pie plate). The original recipe is called Mexican Quiche, hence the spices.

 

Here's the basic quiche recipe:

4 c fat free milk

8 eggs

2 c fat free cheese

1/2 t salt (optional, depending on other ingredients used)

2 t chili powder

2 t cumin

 

I add:

 

1/2 c cornmeal

This kind of turns into polenta and sinks toward the bottom and is great!

(4 points plus without cornmeal, 5 with cornmeal)

Other possible additions include:

spinach

ham

hot peppers

nutmeg

zucchini

 

Obviously you could change the spices.

 

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour into a pan sprayed with oil. Bake for 1 hour at 350. (Note: I have a "speedbake" convection-like setting on my oven. Your time may vary.)

Without cornmeal and with real eggs, 4 POINTS PLUS per serving

this is even better - I think mine had more cornmeal. Thanks!

Well you could ADD more cornmeal if you want. I don't find that the cornmeal necessarily sinks. Maybe if you let it sit a while before baking.
