20 Quiche Recipes to Serve for Breakfast or Brunch
From vegetarian iterations to meaty mix-ins such as bacon or sausage, these recipes are sure to start your morning off on a flavorful note.
A quiche is a tart made with pie crust and a creamy, savory custard filling. The simplest version calls for eggs, heavy cream, whole milk, salt, and pepper, but quiche often stars cheese (we're fans of cooking with sharp Swiss and cheddar cheese), meat, and all kinds of vegetables. If you're looking for a recipe that is delicious for brunch or dinner, look no further than these quiche recipes.
Bacon is a classic ingredient in quiche, for obvious reasons. Our Bacon and Spinach Quiche is filling, rich, and just the thing that you'll want to eat for an extra-special breakfast. Another delicious option is our Bacon and Scallion Quiche, which gets its flavor and stunning appearance from the two main ingredients—no guest will pass this recipe up.
Another classic combination that works so well in a quiche is spinach and cheese. Our Spinach-and-Cheddar Slab Quiche switches things up because it's made with store-bought all-butter puff pastry rather than the usual pâte brisée. For the filling, the two star ingredients are layered on the bottom of the tart, then topped with the egg and cream custard.
Of course, we have several other vegetarian quiche recipes to serve. Our Potato-Crusted Herb Quiche is extra special. Instead of the usual pastry crust, there's a surprising (but equally delicious) base: thinly sliced potatoes! They're tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper, arranged in a pie dish, and baked before being topped with the egg mixture. We're sure that you'll also devour our colorful Rainbow-Chard Quiche and Cherry Tomatoes and Pecorino Quiche, too.
Your family and friends will love to feast on these quiche recipes, whether at the breakfast table, over brunch, or for a light but satisfying dinner.

Asparagus Custard Tart
This tart is unapologetically rich—there is puff pastry, Gruyère and goat cheese, and heavy cream—yet the overall effect is light. It's an elegant, make-ahead addition to a festive spread, but paired with a green salad, it also makes a satisfying supper on its own.
