Quiche, Shaken Not Stirred

I found a recipe for Quiche Lorraine about 100 years ago and tried it out. I liked it and in the process learned that you can make this fancy egg pie about anyway you like. My preferences run towards good sharp cheddar, onions, mushrooms, ham, spinach or green pepper or hot peppers or all of the above. Every time I make it is different but always good. I serve it hot with a generous dollop of sour cream and all of your favorite hot sauce you care to sample This recipes makes 2 pies.

1 8 oz block of sharp cheddar, swiss, gruyerre cheese or pepper jack??
1/2 cup rough chopped mushrooms
1/3 cup roughly chopped onion
1/3 cup roughly chopped peppers – green, pablano or others?

  4. Distribute veggies, cheese and meats between the two pie crusts
  5. Pour egg mixture equally over each pie, covering the veggies and meats.
