Simple Summer Quiche Recipe

A crowd favourite during summer gatherings around here has always been Quiche. There are millions variations on the standard Quiche recipe but today I’m sharing with you my simple answer which can be whipped up in minutes!

This recipe begins with a pre-made pie crust, while some of you may be gasping in horror we all know that it’s a time saver and in these summer months when the kiddos are home I’m often glad for quick options. I keep a few pre-made crusts in the fridge and as long as I have eggs and cheese I can make up a Quiche at any time.

This recipe is somewhat traditional, I’m using onions, ham, mushroom, cheddar cheese and red peppers. It’s a simple Summer Quiche recipe which can be made ahead and stored in the fridge until guests arrive.

    Today I made my first quiche! It was good, but the crust didn’t cook all the way thru. I was just wondering do you pre-bake yours?
