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.
