Fresh Herb Quiche

Forget the one-pot pastas, this spring I’m all about quiche. If you love eggs, love cheese, and love a quick and easy dinner recipe you are going to love this recipe. This classic, cheesy, quiche is filled with herbs and the perfect accompaniment for a salad of spring greens.

 

Of course, the beauty in quiche is its adaptability. You can mix in any of your favorite ingredients to make your own creation. Just consult the recipe to ensure you get the eggs and dairy ratio correct or else you run the risk of having a runny quiche, which is never a good situation. You can make it with or without crust, with vegetables, meat or both, and you can add spices for even more flavor.

With spring finally here and Easter just around the bend, it couldn’t be a more perfect time for quiche. I make a variety of different quiches all year-round, but they seem particularly suited for spring and summer. They’re great for a crowd, especially if you’re having people over for brunch. Whether you’re serving a crowd or just your own family, this delicious quiche recipe is bound to put a little happiness on your table.
