I learned this from one of those school cookbooks where everyone shares their favorite dish. This recipe for super easy holiday quiche is a time saver, a great basic, and I have no idea why I save it for the holidays, because it would be great any time of year, or any time of day for that matter.
Usually I make this for Christmas morning. It’s so simple and though I’ve made breakfast casseroles before, the time it takes to make this quiche is just as fast and easy.
I’m going to give you the basics, then you can let your culinary creativity fly with any combination. Here’s why. The recipe calls for eggs, milk and 2 cups of whatever you would like.
I usually make a veggie and cheese, and another with a meat and cheese. Can you see how great the possibilities could be?
Our favorites are: Cheddar with sausage or bacon and spinach with Jarlsberg which is a creamy Swiss cheese. I also like to add some hot pepper flakes.
My husband likes to sprinkle it with Old Bay seasoning, though I frown at that habit.
