What is a quiche?
Originating in France, a quiche is a traditional recipe that calls for a pastry crust filled with a savoury egg custard and various other ingredients, such as cheese, meat, seafood or vegetables. Quiche is extremely versatile and can be served cold, warm or hot.
What’s wonderful about quiche is that it can easily be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s the perfect go-to dish for Sunday brunch, especially when paired with mimosas.
Whipping up a quiche is also the perfect way to use leftovers like chopped veggies, diced ham and shredded cheese.
