Google describes a quiche as a savory, open-faced pastry crust with a filling of savory custard with cheese, meat, seafood, or vegetables. Google hit the nail on the head with its description! A quiche is just so versatile!
I’m finding comfort in these delicious days where the sun is shining a little longer than the past winter months. Firing up the oven baking a quiche is just the thing you need to showcase the springtime vegetable abundance. Think fresh tomatoes, asparagus, artichokes and garlic. Mmmhmmmm…
I’m such a sucker for a savory quiche, let’s be honest the topic of brunch in general. What’s not to love? This quiche is snap to make, impressive to serve, plus isn’t it a delight to eat? Think about serving at your next brunch with your girlfriends, or eat for dinner like I did. Couldn’t resist. To reach that full springtime nirvana why not try serving with a side of fresh spring greens. Enjoy!
