Basic Quiche recipe

Today I realized that I have never posted a quiche recipe. Which really, is quite a shame because I love quiche and make it all the time, especially in early fall because it gets me back into the baking mood. Quiche is so versatile and you can make it for any meal. Basically whatever type of food you'r in the mood for, you can make a quiche to go with it. If you want a Mexican quiche then cilantro, green chilies, cumin, Mexican cheese and whatever sounds good can go in. Even some beans if that sounds good to you. For an Italian quiche doing a margarita style with mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes tastes great! You can go with a home style quiche with bacon and cheese or even sausage. Greens such as kale and spinach taste great too. I like to use amaranth greens in place of spinach because it grows much better in the summer than spinach. I usually just use whatever needs to be used up. You can always cook the veggies first, especially if you want caramelized onions, but the only veggies that you must cook before are root vegetables and squash. (Zucchini and yellow squash don't need to be cooked before hand) harder vegetables need to be cut up small so that they will cook. 

What you need is:
1 pie crust (if it is homemade then bake it for 10 min)
4 eggs (if you don't have very many fillings then you will need 5)
1/2 cup of whole milk
1/2 cup of cream
Whatever fillings you want

Bake at 350 for about an hour or until a knife comes out clean.
