The other night I made homemade quiche for the first time. It was so delicious! I have to give my mom credit considering it is her recipe. I called her to ask a question about the pie crust and she asked me if I was using her recipe, and I wasn't. She was interested in the ingredients so I told her it had six eggs and heavy cream. She stopped me after the heavy cream. She told me to ditch that recipe and go with hers. My mom's recipe only calls for 2 eggs, 1/2 c. milk and 1/2 c. light mayo. It was such a healthier way to make the quiche and a HUGE success. One benefit of this quiche is once you have the egg, mayo, and milk you can add whatever ingredients you would like. Mine was a shallot, mushroom, and fontina cheese quiche; it goes great with a tomato soup. It's definitely a delicious and comforting meal. I can't wait to play with this recipe and see what different quiches I can come up with. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the quiche, but I think everyone knows what it looks like. :) Hope you find yourself making a great quiche one chilly day!
