Quiche Breakfast

I made quiche for breakfast quite a bit this summer. It’s easy, a little on the luxurious side, and you can literally put anything in it. This quiche recipe features all of the fresh herbs from the garden. Make it ahead of time to enjoy throughout the week, or have it ready if you’re hosting guests. And speaking of guests, that sparks a few ideas for a holiday inspired quiche in the near future…

Next to the bowl is a copper measuring cup filled with chopped herbs, a white bowl filled with eggs, and another small white bowl with black pepper inside.

Quiche Crust

This summer I became a little obsessed with mastering pie crusts. After a few months of trying different ingredients and methods, I think I’ve finally established a pastry process that I love. This particular quiche crust is made from a basic recipe using flour and butter, a splash of white vinegar and a good pinch of salt and pepper. I’ve used this recipe all summer long. For a step by step of this crust recipe, check out our rhubarb tartlets post.

How to Make Quiche

First, establish what you will be mixing with the eggs. This recipe is packed with fresh garden herbs and paired with a good helping of goat cheese. Is there anything better than fresh herbs and goat cheese? If that’s not your jam, you can add your favorite flavor combos in with the eggs. Also, omit the cheese and cream altogether if you are limiting your dairy intake. From here, make the crust, mix the filling and throw the quiche into the oven. Once the crust is golden brown and the eggs are cooked all the way through, serve it up and enjoy!

Gluten Free Quiche

You can easily transform this brunch recipe into a gluten free quiche by using a gluten free flour for the crust. I’ve made this crust with gluten free, cup for cup flour. It works with the same measurements and honestly it’s just as tasty.
