Whenever I host a brunch party, I love making quiche. It’s a simple way to serve eggs to a crowd and it feels a little special. Plus, it’s easily made ahead and delicious even as it cools.
This BHG Quiche recipe is amazing because it’s so adaptable- you can literally add anything to the egg mixture!
Some filling ideas:
- sliced or grated zucchini squash
- big slices of tomato
- pesto and goat cheese
- caramelized red onions
- sausage and fresh herbs
- scallions (green onions)
The list is endless! And it’s great because you can also just use whatever you have in the fridge. I usually cook the veggies or meat before adding it to the quiche to assure it’s fully cooked when the egg mixture is set. I use a pre-made pie crust, but you could certainly make your own.
For the version above, I added ribbons of yellow zucchini squash to the egg mixture, plus grated jack cheese, and a sprinkling of thyme. I made the ribbons of squash using a potato peeler, running it lengthwise down the squash. You could also use a mandolin. Another idea is to simply add big slices of tomato and grated cheese, like below.
