    Baker Petra Cox demonstrates how to create the perfect quiche.

    Petra Cox: Hi, I am Petra Cox with Mom's Apple Pie Company in Occoquan, Virginia and today, I am going to show you how to make a really fantastic quiche. You can start with your own homemade crust or a crust that we make here is a butter crust or you can even do a store bought crust and we will show you how to make the most basic base for the quiche and a few different ways that you can put together a quiche. You could do a Quiche Lorraine or a vegetable quiche if you like. There is lots of ways to go with it and we will show you the most basic recipe to make a really nice, soft, custard-like quiche. Let's get started.

    So, here we are in the kitchen at Mom's Pies in Occoquan and we have all of the ingredients that we are going to need to make our quiche. We have two pie crusts here, they are frozen and we have our vegetables for our vegetable quiche, we have chopped spinach and we have red bell peppers and mushrooms, we have a whole bunch of different things here. We have got Gruyre cheese and we have chopped ham and we have Virginia cheese called Appalachian and for our most basic part though, we are going to just combine a cup of cream and five eggs and a third of a cup of milk and that's going to be the most basic part of our crust. So let's get started.
