I generally have no motives for anything I make. Today was no special occasion, no one is coming over. I just had eggs and bacon and cream that all needed to be used and I didn't really feel like making an omelet. So, quiche it is.
The great thing about this quiche is that it looks and tastes like you put some actual effort into it. This is super easy and you can use pretty much whatever is hanging out in your fridge to fill it up. Crust included, you can have it thrown together in ten minutes. Forty-five minutes in the oven and breakfast is served.
It cuts beautifully and has a nice flaky crust. An excellent breakfast with nothing more than a cup of coffee. This would be great for lunch as well, serve it with fresh fruit or a strawberry and spinach salad.
