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.
Making a Super Easy Holiday Quiche
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?
I use a deep dish frozen pie crust for this recipe. Keep some in the freezer so that you can make them at any time. They don’t need to be defrosted.
You can also play the type of milk. Try cream or half-and-half for a richer dish. Or, use skim milk. I haven’t tried almond milk but I bet it would work well too.
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.
This easy holiday quiche lasts for several days in the fridge, making them a quick breakfast, lunch or snack for any guests staying with you.
