This is a recipe my aunt makes and it is so easy - you can turn this basic formula into a thousand different wonderful combinations! Two of my favorites are ham and cheese and a BLT like quiche with tomatoes, bacon and spinach. I usually use 1 onion soup mix packet for 2 quiches because I've found you sometimes get a really salty packet, but the original recipe below calls for 1 soup mix per quiche - your call!

1 deep dish pie crust (from the fridge or freezer section)
1/2 cup half/half
4 eggs
1 pouch onion soup mix
2 cups cheese
other ingredients of choice

Score the bottom and sides of your crust with a fork.
Put 2 cups of cheese in the bottom of the crust and top with whatever other toppings you want (sauteed onions and peppers, cubed ham, bacon, spinach, tomatoes, anything goes!).
In a small bowl whisk eggs, half/half and onion soup mix. Pour egg mixture over everything in your pie crust.
Bake for 45-60 on 350 or until center puffs up and a fork pulls out clean. Allow to cool before slicing. Enjoy!

*These freeze beautifully after cooking - feel free to make two and have one for dinner and pop the other in the freezer! Remember, you have the ingredients out already so why not make it count double :)
