Tomato Herb Quiche

My kitchen counter runneth over with tomatoes. Here is another dish I made early in the day for supper later.
If summer had a taste this would be it.

Tomato Herb Quiche
Pastry Crust
Parmesan and or Italian cheeses
2-3 sliced ripe tomatoes
6 eggs 
3/4 c. heavy cream or milk as desired
1 Tbsp. flour
Fresh herbs chopped. I used basil, parsley and chives from the garden
salt and pepper

Prepare one simple pastry crust and press into bottom of pie or quiche pan.
For the crust I use a simple pastry crust recipe. I love it as you use oil instead of butter so no cutting the butter into the flour. The recipe for the simple pastry crust is here. 

Bake the pie crust at 375 for five minutes. Line the bottom of the pan with a generous sprinkle of the cheese. I used what I had, some Parmesan and Italian mixed. What I had left in the fridge.
Layer the tomatoes on top.


Mix the rest of the ingredients well and pour into crust. Bake at 425 for ten minutes and then turn down to 375 for 20-30 minutes.


When the top is golden and a knife comes out clean, it is done. Eat warm or later cold as we did with a salad. A fresh meatless meal, perfect for summer. Enjoy!

Looks good, Elaine. We've got a ton of tomatoes too. They love this hot weather we're having. I,on the other hand, am tired of it!

That looks delicious! I have never ever made quiche. This may just be the prompting I needed. :-)

Perfect for tonight! I've got an overabundance of both eggs and tomatoes right now, and I was trying to think of something to serve with my also overabundant figs (which will be stuffed with goat cheese and roasted with a balsamic drizzle). Thanks!

I remember learning to make a quiche Lorraine when I was living in Germany...so yummy, and I felt like a rockstar because I made a "complicated" dish :) :) Thanks for the recipe. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

Fixed it tonight - absolutely delish! The hubs said it smelled good, then he told me it tasted good - and when he said we could have that again I knew you'd given me a winner. Can't believe how easy it was too. Thank you!

Quiche is a delicious side dish which can be best complemented with mixed green salad.
