Tomato Olive Quiche Recipe

Salty, savory olives, two kinds of onions, juicy tomatoes and layers of cheese make this quiche a dish to remember. —Stephanie Proebsting, Barrington, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (6 ounces) pitted ripe olives, drained and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 4 slices provolone cheese


  • 1. Unroll pastry into a 9-in. pie plate; flute edges. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer.
  • 2. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add tomato slices, a few at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, cook tomatoes in oil for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • 3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs and cream; stir in cheddar cheese. Sprinkle olives and onions into crust; top with two slices of provolone cheese. Layer with tomatoes and remaining provolone. Pour egg mixture over the top.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
    Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked quiche. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Preheat oven to 375°. Place on a baking sheet; cover edge loosely with foil. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary for a knife inserted near the center to come out clean. Yield: 8 servings.
