No. 2 : Kitchen Scoop
If making this delicious egg dish ahead of time, don’t preheat the oven. Pour the ingredients into the pie pan, cover and slide in the refrigerator. On the day you want to serve it, remove the pie from the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 350F. When the oven is hot, drizzle or spray the top with olive oil and slide the quiche into the oven and cook until the middle is set, about 60 to 75 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
No. 3 : Clever Idea
*If you can’t find frozen artichoke hearts, use the ones in a jar or a can. 1 (15 oz) can will be about the same amount – 1 cup – as the frozen ones. Make sure to drain and rinse the artichokes before using them in the quiche.
