Steak and Cheddar Quiche
When life hands you lemons you make lemonade. When life hands you Sharp Cheddar Cabot Cheese and King Arthur Flour, you make quiche … and that’s just what I did. Dinner was delicious, my people were pleased, and I was satisfied with a new take on ‘steak and eggs’. I hope you will be, too!
To assemble this tasty breakfast-lunch-dinner idea, you will need a single 8″ to 10″ pie crust. Behold, the formula for the flakiest, most tender pie crust from King Arthur Flour!
My filling included Cabot Sharp Cheddar, onion, garlic, spinach, mushrooms, farm fresh eggs, and leftover Certified Angus Beef ® flank steak. (If you don’t have leftover beef, it’s easy enough to grill a steak, slice it thin, then dice into smaller pieces.)
Here’s the recipe. Follow it exactly or mix it up a bit with your favorite ingredients. Either way, you’re sure to enjoy a #QuicheFeast! My family includes a husband, two teenage girls, growing boy, and me. Two quiches were required (they eat a lot!) Halve the ingredients, below, if you want only one quiche, or make two and freeze the extra!
- 1 lb. steak, sliced thin and then diced

- Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the crust is lightly browned and filling is set.
