Smoked Salmon Quiche

Quiche can be served for brunch, lunch or dinner and this quiche is a delicious choice. Add a salad for a complete meal. It also makes a wonderful appetizer, just serve with a dry California Chardonnay, a perfect pair.

Serves 6-8
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time 30 minutes


  • 1 Prepared pie shell
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper, ground
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, cut into 1/8 inch strips
  • ¼ cup dill, chopped


    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. To make the filling, beat the eggs and milk together. Season with the nutmeg, salt and pepper. Scatter the smoked salmon and dill evenly over the crust, then pour in the milk and egg mixture. Bake the quiche until the filling is set, about 25 minutes.

    Terri’s Tips:

  • Allow the eggs to settle after beating to eliminate air bubbles
  • Cool slowly to avoid cracking the quiche

    Cooking Wiser:

  • Use egg beaters to replace the eggs, eliminating the cholesterol
