Quiche recipe for a large family

My oldest son has recently taken it upon himself to make all of our breakfasts. 🙂  (Maybe my pointing out male cooks/chefs for several years now is paying off!) 

So after a little bit of tweaking, he has come up with a quiche recipe that most of his siblings like.  Then, the other day, because I got a phone call and couldn’t help, he made a “pressed” or “oil” crust all by himself!

We haven’t tried it on a Sunday morning yet, but I think it might work; I would mix up the egg mixture the night before, but not the crust.  Here’s the recipe for a 13×9 pan:

For the crust, mix the following together and then press into the bottom of the pan:

  • 1/2 c. oil (he used olive oil, non-extra-virgin)
  • 2 T. milk
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 1/2 c. flour

Bake at 450 for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, for the egg mixture, mix together…

  • 3 c. milk
  • 9 eggs (beaten)
  • ¾ t. salt

Toss together 3 cups grated cheese (he used part colby-jack and part mozzarella) and ¼ c. flour and add to egg mixture.

(You could also add breakfast meat, if desired)

Bake in 325 oven for 30-40 minutes, until slightly golden. 

Tomorrow, Lord-willing, I’ll share his “tweaked” recipe for caramel rolls.  (He had to tweak it because we had no white or brown sugar in the house, and I said he had to use part whole-wheat flour!)
