Remembering the Quiche in a Jar from France

While on a fantastic summer trip to France last year, I had the best Quiche in a jar. It was so good that in my everyday life, I often remember how great it tasted. Sadly, I felt that I would never be able to recreate the magic myself. I can’t describe my excitement when I came across this recipe for Quiche in a Jar that reminded me exactly of the delicious dish I had in France.

I was thrilled to have found this recipe that I decided to host a breakfast with my family to give it a try. It was definitely a crowd pleaser! It took me right back to that enjoyable French summer. Here’s the recipe below if you’d like to give it a try as well.


What you need:

6 Mason, Ball or any ovenproof 8 oz. glass jars

Oil to grease the insides of jars lightly. (Butter, olive oil, etc.)

Finely chop and combine, making about 1 cup of mixed veggies and herbs:

2-3 small orange and red peppers

A couple slices of red onion

Parsley from the garden

A few olives

1 garlic clove

Whisk in a bowl:

2 cups half and half

4 large eggs

1 ½ cup shredded cheese, mostly white

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Pour veggie mixture into egg mixture. Stir together then pour a little more than halfway into each jar.

Bake at 325° for 50 minutes.

Roll prepared pie crust and cut into triangles or use your favorite cookie cutter. Bake as you would a pie crust, following directions. When cool, and quiche is done, use as garnish. Also garnish with a basil leaf, parsley, olive etc.

I look forward to many more weekend brunches with this delicious recipe.
