I have always loved a great quiche. It is perfect for a brunch and reheats up really well for a quick breakfast when you need to get out the door fast.
You can change a quiche up by changing the toppings. This quiche I used bacon and mushrooms. My last quiche I made was sausage and onions. There are so many possibilities when making a quiche!
I should also mention that this is a grain free and gluten free quiche. The potatoes are such a nice change from the traditional crust of a quiche.
Why not give this quiche a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed, it is absolutely wonderful!
