    Hi -
    Does anyone have the quiche recipe where you mix the cornmeal and eggs all together and the cornmeal settles to the bottom to form the crust? Thanks.

    Versatile Quiche Recipe



    This is a great basic quiche recipe I adapted from one in American Whole Foods Cuisine. You can make lots of variations.

    The original recipe was half of this. I make this amount in a deep 13 x 9 pan. Halve it and you can make it in a 9 x 9 (I've never done it in a pie plate). The original recipe is called Mexican Quiche, hence the spices.

    Here's the basic quiche recipe:
    4 c fat free milk
    8 eggs
    2 c fat free cheese
    1/2 t salt (optional, depending on other ingredients used)
    2 t chili powder
    2 t cumin

    I add:

    1/2 c cornmeal
    This kind of turns into polenta and sinks toward the bottom and is great!
    (4 points plus without cornmeal, 5 with cornmeal)
    Other possible additions include:
    spinach
    ham
    hot peppers
    nutmeg
    zucchini

    Obviously you could change the spices.

    Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour into a pan sprayed with oil. Bake for 1 hour at 350. (Note: I have a "speedbake" convection-like setting on my oven. Your time may vary.)


    Without cornmeal and with real eggs, 4 POINTS PLUS per serving

    this is even better - I think mine had more cornmeal. Thanks!

    Well you could ADD more cornmeal if you want. I don't find that the cornmeal necessarily sinks. Maybe if you let it sit a while before baking.

    I've added more (as much as a cup) but then it becomes more of a LOAF than QUICHE ;-)
