Ham And Spinach Quiche
I love serving ham and spinach quiche, western omelet quiche or easy sausage quiche for all of the lady like reasons you can imagine. It’s definitely on my short list menu for tea parties and brunch, and in general, I just like the idea of a savory pie. It’s a fantastic for a light lunch or dinner when paired with a salad and the men in my life love quiche, too. I’ve witnessed it firsthand. What better way to use vegetables to brightly color a dish, and spinach ranks close to number one for beloved vegetables at our house. It’s amazing ho I can get my boys to eat vegetables in quiches like my broccoli cheddar bacon quiche and they’ll eat them at any meal.
Serve Quiche at Any Meal
Quiche recipes are always fantastic for using leftovers in a new way, as well. You can serve leftover holiday turkey in this Kentucky hot brown quiche and my cornbread and sausage quiche can be enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. For that reason alone, quiche will never go out of style in my cookbook. Another delicious savory pie you may enjoy is thisImpossibly Easy Vegetable Pie from Betty Crocker.
