I have always loved a great quiche. It is perfect for a brunch and reheats 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!

Can these be made ahead of time, like the day before hosting a brunch, and then reheat in the oven?
Halle Cottis says
I would make the crust ahead of time and then fill them the day of the brunch and then cook them.
susanna faygenbaum says
this looks so good! i was about to make it and realized after making the crust that i don’t have 6 eggs for the filling…
what do you think of me preparing everything the night before and just assembling and baking tomorrow?
Halle Cottis says
That would work out great!
