No-Frills Tomato Onion Basil Quiche

I made four of these super easy quiches last night. Three of them were for work while the other one was for Adrianne and I's dinner. It's such and easy recipe that I thought I'd share. Don't expect some fancy-shmancy quiche here, it is what it is! 

2 cups chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 tbs dried basil
1 tbs salt
1 tbs pepper
a pinch of nutmeg
3 eggs
1 cup cream
2 tbs of flour
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
1 (9") pie crust

Arrange chopped tomatoes in the bottom of the pie crust. Then add the chopped green onions. Next sprinkle basil, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cheeses. In a bowl whip eggs, cream and flour and then pour into the pie. Bake in a pre-heated oven of 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Let cool and set before serving.

I'm headed home to eat my leftovers right now! YUM! I love quiche..... If only the crust weren't so fatty. Come up with a way to make quiche in a healthier crust - now there's a challenge for you! :)

This looks pretty tasty! I've never tried to make a quiche before, but this might be a good place to start.

It looks spectacular to me!!! Never tried to cook a quiche but yours are so tempting :D

That both looks and sounds incredible! The flavors are really fresh, too.

Great first picture!

Adrianne, I remember making an asparagus tart a long time ago with a crust called Greek Baking-Powder Piecrust. Of course, it isn't quite the same as a pastry crust, but it still tastes good.

And I do like what it is:D To lower the far try a potato crust that is just thinly sliced potatoes baked into the pie shell...I have seen it somewhere recently and have it on the brain to try:D
