Do you know what a quiche is?
For a brief background, quiche or “refrigerator pie” as Alton Brown usually calls it, is simply a baked flan, pie, or tart with a flavorful filling that could be meat, seafood, or vegetables. The combination of milk or cream and eggs makes the flaky crust thick. Although it is from French cuisine, you can find the recipe anywhere. Wherever there is a party, this pie never fails to pop up.
Hence, when Alton Brown a famous celebrity shared his quiche recipe, all who loves to bake (including me) have found a new interest to indulge with at home. Therefore, I am sharing it to you as well.
Alton Brown Refrigerator Pie Recipe
Quiche is easy and fast to make, so it really is not that hard to try even when you are baking it for the first time. The truth is I can mix all the ingredients I want inside my fridge (leftovers and whatever) if I have to. Maybe that is why Alton called it refrigerator pie. Nothing is easier than tossing all you like in a bowl, using a wooden spoon to mix it with egg and pour the mixture over a pie crust.
Hey, what I like about Alton’s quiche recipe is that he encourages using a frozen pie crust, which is convenient for me. He also is open to giving me choices on what fillings I like to use.

For the pie filling, you can try choosing any of the following combinations (or improvise your own). However, I suggest that one out of the three must be any kind of cheese.
The ingredients are only good for one 9” pie (8 servings).
