Classic Quiche Two Ways

Classic Quiche Two Ways

Quiche (/ˈkiːʃ/ KEESH) is a French tart consisting of pastry crust filled with savoury custard and pieces of cheese, meat, seafood or vegetables. 

I love to make quiche when entertaining family or friends for brunch or a light lunch. Quiche is great served warm or at room temperature, paired with a side of fruit or a lightly dressed salad.  You can be creative with your quiche by varying the type of cheese, meats, and or vegetables, the possibilities are limitless when it comes to this savory dish.

Today I’m sharing a basic quiche recipe in two ways.  The first quiche is vegetarian; made with spinach, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and green onions.  The second one is made of ham and caramelized shallots. Both of these quiches have the same base ingredients; eggs, heavy cream, white cheddar, and greyer cheese. Once you have the basic ingredients you can mix it up and create your very own signature quiche to impress your family and friends.

Now let’s get cooking!
