Apple Quiche

Fabulous! What a wonderful change of pace this apple quiche is for brunch or lunch! Use an apple that will hold its shape when baked — Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Rome, or Northern Spy will all work. Avoid McIntosh and Red Delicious.

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 to 6 large apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash of nutmeg
  • dash of cinnamon

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the apples in the pie shell. Sprinkle the cheese over the apples. In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Pour over the apples. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving warm, or serve chilled.

  • I made this and served it at our restaurant. The customers who got to eat it prior to it selling out loved it. They commented that it tasted more like a custard than a standard quiche.

  • This was really delicious! It is a great way to help use up homegrown apples.

    I sliced 6 medium granny smith apples, made a homemade pie crust recipe, and substituted 2/3 cup of nonfat dry milk powder + 1/3 cup water for the evaporated milk. Baked at 350 degrees for 62 minutes and let stand for 1/2 hr before slicing. I knew it was done because the cheese and apples had browned nicely on top so I wanted to remove it from the oven before the top became burnt. There was still liquid in the center when I first pulled it out of the oven but it solidified during cooling.

    My husband and children all loved it! **Next time I will add a little sausage to make it more savory and will make a pastry crust instead of pie crust for a lighter, flakier crust.

  • ^^Sorry that substitution for evaporated milk was incorrect…it should read 2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder + 3/4 cup water
