I love Quiche and here is my original Quiche recipe with my secret ingredient. But then one day i was surfing other food blogs and saw this cool quiche recipe from Eat Drink Pretty that had a potato crust and i had to try this out. So the other weekend i wanted to make a quiche and didn’t feel like making the pie crust and instead used a potato crust. It was really simple and easy.
Quiche is a great brunch food, not only that; Quiche makes an excellent left over the day after. You can put almost anything you want in a Quiche, but the below recipe are my favorite ingredients.
They key to any Quiche is to Dijon mustard, that is what I think makes the delicious flavor of the whole thing.
Let me know what you like to put in your Quiche.
