Eggs are so amazing! They are gluten free, high in protein, low in calories, and are budget friendly to boot! They perform a myriad of functions within dishes, and are definite kitchen staples. Their versatility allows for imaginative dishes that range from simple to exotic, without breaking the bank. If it is not obvious, I am a true fan of the egg, from boiled eggs to the subtle addition in that perfect holiday cookie. I want to show them some love by sharing a yummy egg recipe that is sure to please this holiday season. This smoked salmon quiche is a shoo-in for success, AND eggs from your backyard girls play a starring role!
I tried a version of this quiche several years ago, and it has been a keeper in the recipe bin ever since, particularly when I get a truckload of much-appreciated eggs from my mother or aunt. Quiches are fantastic, because they are so easy to adapt-you can throw just about anything into the mix and it turns out tasty! Also, quiche is great because it can be served for breakfast, brunch, or dinner, and can even be made ahead and frozen for later use. Perfect, right? The version I make is with a store-bought crust (my grandmother said it is okay, so it is okay), but I have seen some versions with no crust, a homemade crust, and even a potato crust. And, we typically enjoy it at the Jordan abode with rosemary potatoes and a side salad.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Bring the kids into the kitchen, make a mess, and make some memories…Happy Holidays!
Yield: 2 quiches (eat one now and freeze the other! Or, for one quiche, just split the recipe in half)
