Does anyone know how to make a quiche? Do you HAVE to use cream in them? All I've been able to find is recipe's that have cream...any help would be appreciated!

  • You don't have to use cream. Some of my recipes call for evaporated milk. You could use just plain milk. If you want it to be a little richer, substitute some melted butter for part of the milk. I've got a bunch of different recipes, and they are all different. My good friend once told me that recipes are merely suggestions, anyway, so I say go for it!!!

  • I agree w/ the other post. I sometimes sub milk, evaporated milk or even half & half. Whatever's on hand! The only difference will be the density and the creamy texture.

  • The cream will really make the quiche more fluffy and more solid. If i omit a lot of cream i will use a extra egg or two so it is not so runny. but hat will be less fluffy. I agree that recipes are suggestions. My mom hates eggs but loves my quiche!

  • Here's mine!

    Make a normal pie crust (uncooked)

    Filling: 2 Tb chopped onion,1/4 cup butter,3 Tb flour, 1/2 teas. Salt,1/8 teas. Pepper,1 Cup milk,4 eggs, 1- 10 oz. spinach (thawed and drained),1/2 cup bacon,1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

    Sauté onion and butter, blend in flour, salt and pepper. Add milk, cook stir until smooth and thick.

    Beat eggs- temper eggs with hot mixture then add into hot mix

    Cook 1 min. Remove from heat. Stir cheese in until melted and add other stuff
    (Spinach, bacon, etc)

    Bake 375 30-40 min or knife is clean when stuck in.

    This is for a florentine quiche. You can really put anything into the basic egg mix.
