I’m Making Zucchini Quiche for Our Brunch Menu
Do you love quiche as much as I do?
They are so easy to make, delicious, and filling that I decided to make this one for my gals.
Have you ever had a zucchini quiche before?
It’s so creamy and delicious.
Especially since it features my favorite, ricotta cheese.
A friend of mine introduced this recipe to me years ago at a brunch.
It was SO good, I had to make it!
When we talk about quiche we tend to think of quiche lorraine or a bacon cheddar.
But this one is a little different and that’s why I like it!
Ricotta cheese provides a beautiful, light, creamy texture that pairs well with zucchini.
And if the zucchini is picked fresh from the garden, it’s even better!
This zucchini quiche recipe is easy to make and works well for any brunch menu or dinner recipe.
- 1 pie crust
- 2-3 zucchini sliced thin about1/4 inch or less (need roughly3 cups))
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 onion diced
- 3 cloves of garlic minced
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup ricotta whole milk
- 1/2 cup half and half
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- few dashes of pepper
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella separate into two 1/2 cup portions
- sprinkling of paprika
- Preheat oven 350.
- Sauté the onion, garlic and zucchini. Note: Don't skip thisstep because it cooks out the extra zucchini liquid. Baking it directly in the quiche will make it more watery with less flavor.
- Beat the eggs with half 'n half, spices, ricotta cheese and half of the mozzarella cheese.
- Use your favorite pie crust recipe.
- Add the sauteed veggies.
- Pour the egg mixture on top.
- Add mozzarella on top.
- Top off with some sauteed zucchini slices.
- Sprinkle with Paprika
- Bake in oven for 45 minutes.
- Allow to set and cool for 10 minutes before serving.
