Simply Delicious Tomato And Olive Quiche
Tomato Olive Quiche Recipe
Tomatoes and olive quiche recipe is one of my favorite which I enjoy preparing each time. So I picked up some onions and tomatoes from the garden and headed straight to the kitchen. The husband and I both love it! I used (as you may have guessed) a quiche/tart pan, which is shallower than a pie plate, but without changing any volumes it was perfectly filled and looked lovely. A few tweaks were in order - how are 2 provolone slices supposed to cover the olives and onions on the bottom? I used 4 so it would form a complete layer.
Besides, the coating and frying may take some time so you can just roast the tomatoes instead in a 425-degree oven for 30 minutes with a little olive oil drizzle, garlic salt, and fresh thyme. You may want to use more than 2 medium tomatoes, too. You can also substitute the cream with half-and-half if you are aiming to cut out some calories. Don't even mess with those cheap sliced black olives that sell for like 50 cents a can! The kalamatas were the perfect addition. I really enjoy this tomato and olive quiche every time.
