Quick & Easy Quiche RecipeQuick Quiche Recipe Can Save the Day

This quick quiche recipe is delicious and fast to prepare.  This is my husband’s quiche recipe and he is always willing to help out in the kitchen.  When he cooks breakfast for us, it is truly a treat for me.

During the holidays, it seems like we barely finish one meal before we are starting the next.  Having something that is fast and easy to prepare for breakfast is frankly a necessity with the number of guests we having staying with us during the weeks of Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Oh, and this is a most excellent New Year’s Day breakfast!

This quiche recipe seems to be a dish that everyone enjoys.  He usually has to prepare 2 or 3 quiches each morning to feed all of our guests, but one is enough when he is cooking for 4 to 6 people.

Tip for Baking Quiche
Before you fill pie shell, place it on a cookie sheet.
The ingredients for this quiche fill the entire shell and spill easily when transferring to and from the oven.
Remove the cookie sheet from underneath the pie pan about halfway through total baking time to allow the center of the quiche to fully cook.

    That quiche does look really good. I do love quiche, we often have it served with salad or a baked potato. It’s very versatile though and great to take on a picnic too and eat cold.
