Easiest Cheese Quiche

Linda Larsen
If you buy preshredded cheese and a refrigerated pie crust, this quiche takes about five minutes to put together. And it's so good, with only five ingredients! You could, of course, add everything from thawed and drained frozen spinach to cooked sausages or onions or other vegetables, but that would take more time!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Yield: Serves 6-8


  • 1 refrigerated pie crust OR homemade pie crust
  • 3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, or a combination of Swiss and Cheddar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1-2 teaspoons dried chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Let refrigerated crust stand at room temperature 15 minutes, then gently unroll. Place in 9" pie pan, press into bottom and up sides, and flute edges.

Sprinkle cheese into the bottom of the pie crust; set aside.

In medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients and beat with a wire whisk until smooth and incorporated. Pour carefully over cheeses in crust.

Bake for 40-50 minutes until quiche is puffed, golden brown, and set. Let stand 5 minutes, then cut into wedges to serve.

easy and simple!, Guest julieb549

I followed the recipe to a t, then added 1/4 cup of chopped leftover ham from Easter- It turned out great!! Like many recipes, I had forgotten how delicious it was! Recommend 110% Already sent the recipe to my grown kids so they can make an easy and tasty meal! Had a garden salad with it, was perfect. I had pastry dough already made in the freezer.
