Best Quiche Recipes

The Top Ten

By

Yes, real men do eat quiche - and happily! Quiche is simply an egg custard, seasoned with anything you desire, baked in a flaky and delicious pie crust. Quiche can be made with spicy sausage, with lots of sauteed vegetables, or just with grated cheese and herbs. It's perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and easy to make, especially if you have some frozen or prepared pie crusts on hand. These are the best quiche recipes on the planet.

Honey mustard, thyme, and frozen chopped spinach add flavor and color to this gorgeous classic quiche. Other cheeses in the 'Swiss' family you could use include Gruyere and Havarti.

4. Beef Cheese Pan Quiche

This fabulous recipe stretches a pound of ground beef to serve eight to ten people. It's rich, cheesy, mild, and delicious. You can spice it up if you'd like by adding some minced jalapenos or habaneros peppers to the onion and beef mixture, or stir in some chili powder and cumin. I like it just like it is. It's also delicious reheated in the toaster oven for breakfast or lunch.

5. Wild Rice Quiche Recipe

Wild rice is a delicious addition to a quiche. It may seem slightly improbable - rice in quiche, but it adds a great texture and mild nuttiness I find irresistible. Some sour cream and Dijon mustard add the perfect finishing touch.

This wonderful quiche is perfect for a special brunch. Use your favorite breakfast sausages in this easy recipe. The small sausages work best.

9. Pizza Quiche Recipe

The flavors of pizza add great interest to this easy quiche recipe. Pepperoni is an unusual quiche ingredient, but it works well here. You can serve this quiche with some heated pizza sauce if you'd like.

10. Mini Quiches

Mini quiches are a great choice for an appetizer or for a lunch. These small bite-sized quiches are super cute and very tasty. You can add anything you'd like to the recipe: try bacon instead of the mushrooms, or use cooked crumbled pork or chicken sausage.
