And don’t be intimidated.  It really is as easy as chopping three ingredients, stirring three more ingredients, and pouring.

Quiche feels so fancy and French… but I love that in France, it’s more the equivalent of a hot pocket: fast, portable, and informal.  When we lived in Paris, I was not alone in grabbing a quiche from a local bakery window and eating it on a street bench between my errands.

So much healthier, fresher, and more delicious than many of our go-to fast foods here!

I love this meal now because I can make them as far in advance as I like (they reheat in the microwave perfectly, but they’re also good cold or room temperature!), pair it with fruit or salad, and call it a full meal.

It’s perfect for al fresco dining on our back porch – so portable and simple, and my boys beg me for the leftovers for lunch the next day.

And cleanup?  Just throw away a foil pie pan.  My kind of finish!

  1. Looks like a delicious lunch, or brunch.

  2. I love quiche! I never think to make it though, I don’t know why. But this looks so easy! We are big egg and breakfast eaters at our house, so this will be a hit with my hubby. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!! I’m visiting from Inspire me Please. :)

  3. We are a quiche family and in order to cut calories I have stopped using pie crusts. I have a baking dish from Pampered Chef and its great for quiche. I simply dice a large onion and brown in butter and coat the bottom of the baking dish. Then I add the ingredients one by one and pour egg and milk mixture over the ingredients. Good stuff and it cuts our calories in half. Add a salad and waa-laa…..a french meal for sure. Thanks for the dinner idea.

      Love it, Hilarie! I am currently doing a paleo thing (just needed a reboot on my system for the new year!), and an onion crust sounds delicious. Thanks for the idea. :)
