6 large eggs
1.5 cups milk
8 ounces Swiss-type cheese (I did a mix of swiss cheese and cheddar cheese)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg - optional
1 pie or quiche crust (in the frozen or refrigerated section of the grocery store)
Ideas for other tasty ingredients: cooked bacon and/or ham, red orange or/and green peppers, onion, etc. Lightly sautee the veggies before you add them to the egg/milk/cheese mixture below.
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk until thoroughly blended. Season with the salt and pepper, then add the cheese and stir until it is blended. Turn the mixture into the pre-baked pastry, and spread out the cheese evenly over the bottom of the pastry. Sprinkle the top with nutmeg if you've used a Swiss-type cheese, and bake in the center of the oven until the filling is golden and puffed, and is completely baked through, about 30 minutes. To test for doneness, shake the quiche - if it is solid without a pool of uncooked filling in the center, it is done. You may also stick a sharp knife blade into the center of the filling and if it comes out clean, the quiche is baked through.

Remove the quiche from the oven and serve immediately.
This actually made 2 quiches for us. You can wrap it in foil and freeze it or give it away. Delicious!
