This Spring Vegetable Quiche Recipe is the perfect breakfast or brunch recipe to serve up to your friends and family.
Quiche is so incredibly easy to make and definitely can add a touch of elegance to your table top spread, and even better is that it’s so versatile. I try to create most of my recipes with the creator in mind where they can swap out ingredients to their liking. I can imagine some folks would maybe want to use kale instead of spinach, or perhaps don’t like tomatoes and don’t want to use them, the beautiful thing is that you can add, remove or swap out whatever vegetables you’d like in this Spring Vegetable Quiche Recipe.
I’ve made quite a few quiches over the years and to this day I still find that puff pastry makes for the best crust. Yes you can absolutely make a homemade crust and use it, but if you are looking for the ultimate in flaky crusts then save yourself some time and go pick up a sheet from the freezer aisle. The other important part is to make sure you use some kind of cheese in the egg and heavy cream batter. You can use cheddar, gouda, asiago, it doesn’t matter just use some kind of shredded cheese in it. Cheese will not only help bind everything together but it will also add some delicious flavor to your quiche.
Last but not least sprinkle on some fresh herbs over the top of the quiche. You can use thyme, chervil, oregano or basil as I did. That’s it for now kids, happy quiche cooking!
