Quiche is an easy and delicious meal– and it's a great way to incorporate some protein into your diet! There's no limit to the ingredient combinations that work well in this dish.
Making a quiche is something of an experiment, and you can always throw in different veggies or substitute one type of meat for another to enjoy a different flavor. One of our personal favorites is this recipe, which features bacon (!), spinach and Swiss cheese.
