Tomato Quiche

I know. I am turning this into a recipe blog. But hey, we all gotta eat! This is a nice way to use summer's bounty.
Tomato Quiche
1 unbaked pie shell
2-3 good sized tomatoes sliced (If they are very seedy, remove that part. It will make the bottom of the quiche too wet.)
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 medium onion sliced into rings
1 cup shredded cheese
4 beaten eggs
1 tablespoon of milk or cream
salt and pepper to taste
Place the tomatoes into the pie shell, overlapping as needed. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning. Arrange the onion slices evenly. Sprinkle the shredded cheese. Mix the beaten eggs and the milk together and pour over the cheese. (I add the salt and pepper to the egg mixture and then pour.) Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 45 minutes or until the center is set. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. This will allow the eggs to finish cooking. Enjoy! Makes great leftovers. I actually prefer it cold. You could also add very thinly slices zucchini.
I am blessed. ~Angela

This is something like the Shaker Tomato Pie that I make once in a while, but I use canned tomatoes. We are STILL waiting to find local fresh grown tomatoes here. I think there are some but they were sold out before we got any. Gotta look again!

Hi Angela! Thank you for the wonderful recipes I love them. This tomato quiche looks delicious. I love quiche and make it all the time. I often add mushrooms, and asparagus. I have never thought about zucchini, that sounds good too! I hope you have a lovely and restful afternoon. Delisa :)

Looks good--I'll try it when/if my reluctant tomato plants ever give me any tomatoes. There's something the matter with them this year. I hope you're feeling well, Angela.

Hi Angela...found your blog by way of Kim at The Wooley Stitcher. Your recipes look delicious and I see myself trying a few of them out in the very near future.

Hi Angela,

Recipe blogs are great! Keep up the good work. And I want to thank you for your kind comments.

Is Orleans, IN anywhere near Brown Co? I go to Brown Co once a year and I'd love to visit a farmers market.

This is what I wanted to have for supper tonight but Dave had a biz meeting so I had leftover lima beans instead. I think tomato and bacon quiche tomorrow night or maybe lunch. Your quiche looks wonderful!
