 Just like the name states, you'll never need another quiche recipe again! This creates a creamy and rich egg custard and you can switch up the mix-ins however you like. 


  • 1 9" pie crust, rolled and placed in a pie dish
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup California Ripe Green Olives, chopped
  • 1/4 C sharp white cheddar, grated
  • 1/4 cup diced ham
  • 1/4 cup caramelized onions *see notes*


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine eggs, cream, salt and pepper in a medium-sized bowl and whisk until well combined. 

Layer olives, cheese, ham, and onions into the pie crust and pour egg mixture over the top. 

Place pie pan on a baking sheet and bake for 60 minutes or until the center of the quiche is just set-- it will jiggle like jello right in the center and when you insert a knife into the center it will come out with just moisture on the blade. 

Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing. 



Recipe Notes

To customize this quiche recipe, you can mix and match your mix-ins! You can use up to 1 1/2 cups of ingredients and get good results. For the recipe above I knew I wanted to use 4 ingredients, so I just split them up into 1/4 cup quantities to make 1 cup total. 

It's best to cook vegetables that have a high water content (onions, peppers, greens, mushrooms, etc.) before adding to the quiche. Not only does it keep the quiche from getting soggy, it gives great flavor! That's why I use caramelized onions in the above recipe instead of just plain onions.
