Author: Jonesin' For Taste


  • 2- 9 inch pie crusts

Base mix:

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup cheese my favorite is a combo of sharp cheddar cheese and a jack or swiss cheese
  • 2 cups total of mix in options
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix in options:

  • Meats: Ham Crab, Bacon, Shrimp, Sausage
  • Veggies: Green onion cooked spinach, lightly steamed broccoli, sauteed onion, mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes, cooked kale, leftover baked potatoes


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Have pie tin ready with pie crust already prepared.
  • In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add yogurt and milk and mix again till combined. Add cheese and briefly stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add in no more than 2 cups of the mix in options. For example, use 1 cup chopped ham, 3/4 cup chopped kale, lightly packed, and 1/4 cup green onion.
  • For a 9 inch pie pan, bake for 50-60 minutes or until the center of the quiche is set when gently jiggled. If edges begin to brown too quickly cover loosely with foil.
  • If making individual quiches use approximately 4-5 6-ounce ramekins and bake for 35-45 minutes.
