Quiche is a delightful, eggy breakfast food that can include many different toppings. Quiche generally has cheese, veggies, or meat (like ham or sausage).
You can try a combination of the three and all on top of a delicious, flaky pie crust.
The best part of quiche is the inviting smell and gooey cheese inside when it is still warm from the oven. Ham and cheese quiche is always a crowd-pleaser.
Quiche is an easy way to liven up breakfast, lunch, or brunch. If you have leftovers, you can even eat them for dinner.
Although Quiche is incredible on its own, there are many yummy side dishes (and even drinks) to pair it with to create a scrumptious meal!

Sometimes the perfect side dish is crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, a loaf of bread. Baking bread can seem like a daunting task, but this French Bread recipe makes it easy. This is a make-ahead recipe due to the time needed for the dough to rise.
This recipe calls for yeast, sugar, warm water, olive oil, salt, flour, one egg, and milk. Add the yeast and sugar into the warm water. The yeast will need to activate for a few minutes.
Next add in the olive oil, salt, and flour. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes, then let the dough rise for about two hours. Punch the dough down, let it sit for 15 minutes, then divide the dough in half.
Roll the dough into log shapes. Add the dough to a cookie sheet and brush with milk and a beaten egg. This will help create that wonderful crust. Bake for 25 minutes and enjoy!
Slice the French bread and apply a small amount of butter and honey and serve with the quiche. Try it out!
