Quiche 1

 

This quiche is easy to put together resulting in a nice light and savory breakfast treat.  I have to admit that breakfast during the week is usually either a yogurt, a muffin or other pastry, cereal, fruit, or breakfast bar.  Not totally bad choices, however, on the weekends I like to put a little more effort into making breakfast.

Also, if you add a salad, and fruit, this would be great for brunch/lunch meal.   In fact, I am sure that this light, fluffy custard baked in a flaky pie crust could be breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  I will let you make the choice.

  1. I also add a little chopped spinach and green onions to mine for some added color and flavor. Make two and freeze one for another day. Just reheat later! Good recipe.
