Brunch Souffle Quiche

After a week or so break from blogging, I am back with some delicious recipes to share with y'all. 
This Souffle Quiche was a successful accident! I was trying to "throw together" a brunch for my parents who were visiting and we only had some eggs and cheese. No meat, not a lot of veggies, but luckily a pie crust hidden in the back of the fridge. So I prepared what I thought was my basic quiche recipe. However, we were out of milk so I used whipping cream and added a couple extra eggs since I used a deep dish pie pan. The result was a fluffy and moist souffle! It was a hit and I have since made it again {and again} for my daughter who calls it "egg pie" and asks for it for breakfast often. 
Hope you enjoy this tasty dish as much as we do! 

Ingredients:

  • 10 eggs
  • 1 deep dish ready to bake pie crust 
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I like a Cheddar blend or Mozzarella)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • salt/white pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. If using a refrigerated rolled pie crust fit it into a 9 inch deep dish pie dish and trim the edges.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs until frothy.
  4. Add whipping cream, salt and pepper, and then stir in shredded Mozzarella cheese.
  5. Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan and then gently place in the oven to bake.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes until egg has risen and is set and the top is golden brown.
  7. Cut into slices and serve warm.
  8. Delicious for dinner with a side salad or as a breakfast with fresh fruit. 

By substituting heavy whipping cream and adding extra eggs you 
turn a basic quiche into a souffle! 
Whisk the 10 eggs until combined and frothy.
Stir in whipping cream. Then add salt and pepper and shredded Mozzarella cheese. 
Either use a unbaked deep dish pie crust or roll out pie crust and fit it into your pie dish, then trim or fold edges.
Fill with egg mixture and top with shredded Parmesan cheese. 
 Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and the egg is set.
You should have a perfectly fluffy Souffle Quiche with a puffy top! 
Slice and serve warm with fruit for a mouthwatering brunch or with a salad for tasty dinner.
