Quiche Recipes

Quiche Recipes are one of the most sought-after savory egg dishes.

Quiche recipes are originally from France. They are very popular since the ingredients are commonly found inside the refrigerator (eggs, bacon, spinach, cheese, etc). Quiche are also considered as staple foods during brunch, breakfast or sometimes during dinner.

The following quiche recipes include easy-to-follow recipes. The first two recipes are somewhat similar to each other. The 2nd recipe does not have the traditional pastry shell that they use for making quiche. The last recipe is for those vegetarians who want to eat a quiche. If an oven is not available, you can always opt to cook the crustless quiche. You can substitute Swiss or Gruyere cheese to a strong cheddar cheese or with some parmesan cheese. Mozarella cheese is rarely used, since it taste too creamy and might overpower the savory flavors of the quiche.
