Pseudo quiche recipe November 20, 2008

Pseudo-Quiche!I have a tendency to make things up as I go along when I’m in the kitchen. Sometimes I peruse recipes to get inspiration. Sometimes I even follow one, although it seems to bother me if I follow it to the letter; I have this perverse need to change things around. Or maybe it’s just that I generally CBA (can’t be arsed) to make a special trip to pick up the proper things so I make it work with what’s on hand.

That said, I seem to be recreating the same recipe a few times so I thought I’d put it down for posterity. I call it “Pseudo quiche” because it doesn’t have any dough layer. I have done quiche with both sweet and savory doughs and it’s yummy either way, but that layer really isn’t necessary!

So here goes!



  • veggies that need eating
  • eggs
  • cream (optional)
  • cheese
  • sea salt
  • spices (nutmeg, dill)
Sauteed veggies

Saute the veggies in olive oil. Today I used zucchini, mushrooms, arugula and broccoli. Put the sauteed veggies into a baking pan.

Scrambled eggs

Scramble eggs and cream. Add in salt and spices.


Chop up some of your favorite cheese (today I used raw sharp cheddar).

Pour the eggs over the veggies.
Put the cheese on top. Bake at 425F for 20 min.
