My Gay Toronto - Easy Cooking


Weekend breakfast is a great opportunity to break away from your regular weekday routine, but often on weekends you are too busy to put together something different.  Whether you are cooking something up for ‘the morning after’ or for your family coming over for brunch, a quiche can be prepared easily and is a satisfying but often overlooked option.  Since quiche can be fairly versatile in which recipe and ingredients you use, I simply use the base recipe and add my favorite ingredients or ones that are left over from the week.

1 unbaked pie shell
3 eggs
1 ½ cups of milk
½ cup of chopped red peppers
½ cup of chopped red onions
½ cup of chopped tomatoes
½ cup of crumbled feta cheese
½ tsp of ground black pepper
½ tsp of salt
½ tsp of dried basil

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and bake crust for 10 minutes. 
  2. In a bowl beat the eggs and the milk.  Stir in the remaining ingredients, except for the dried basil.   Pour in the mixture into the pie shell.  Sprinkle the dried basil over the top.
  3. Bake in the oven at the same temperature for 40-60 minutes.  Poke the centre with a knife; if the quiche is ready the knife comes out clean.  Let it sit for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

Buen provecho!
