What is a Denver Quiche?
I’m feeling like a broken record, but I REALLY Love Quiche and this one is no exception. A Denver Omelette is my favorite omelette so it’s only natural that I put a spin on that recipe and make a quiche, with all the same flavors you would expect from a Denver Omelette!
The ingredients for this are pretty simple, eggs, mushrooms, ham, bell peppers, cheese and green onions. Oh and of course heavy cream and sour cream. Without it, you just won’t get the right texture you are looking for!
In a bowl combine the egg, milk, cream, and all the fresh ingredients and stir.
Using a stackable pan with trivet makes putting the quiche in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker quick and easy. But you can always make a foil sling to lower the quiche when using a springform pan.
What Makes Quiche Fluffy?
Well Eggs of course! Egg is the main basic ingredient and when it’s whisked air is added and the texture will be light and fluffy.
Why is my Quiche Watery on Top?
PLEASE PLEASE read this, it will save you so much headache, I promise. When a temperature is too hot the milk and cheese can separate producing a clear watery liquid. You can easily blotted off with a paper towel if it’s a problem. In this recipe for Denver Quiche I have found that the mushrooms and bell pepper really add extra liquid that needs to be blotted off.
