Farmer’s Quiche Recipe

Prep: 15 mins Cook: 50 mins Total: 1 hr 5 mins Servings: 8

Yield: 1 10-inch quiche


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large sweet onion (such as Vidalia®), cut into chunks
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 10 ounces shredded Jarlsberg cheese
  • 2 ounces freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 bunches Swiss chard, stems and leaves separated
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 prepared 10-inch pie crust


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Step 2

Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in melted butter until soft, about 7 minutes; transfer to large bowl.

Step 3

Blend eggs, milk, Jarlsberg cheese, and Parmesan cheese in a food processor or blender; pour into bowl with the onion. Add chard, thyme, nutmeg, salt, and black pepper; mix. Pour egg mixture into prepared pie crust.

Step 4

Bake in preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes.


Cook’s Notes:

You can make this crustless or into a finger food by omitting the crust and pouring the filling into muffin tins or individual ramekins instead of the pie plate.

We’ve tried half Swiss chard and half beet greens when short on Swiss chard.
