Quiche isn't for wimps, it's for picnics
Fifteen or maybe a million years ago, this quiche formula was one of the first recipes I ever created that felt like "Oh my gosh I can actually cook!" It's from Mollie Katzen's classic Enchanted Broccoli Forest. Quick, healthy, and easy to make for a bunch of people, this quiche is the answer for picnics and brunches. Featured here is artichoke-dill filling, but I've also done tomato-basil (below) and mushroom-onion. But you really can be creative with whatever kind of filling you would like. I always opt for the Savory Crumb Crust, and it gets rave reviews. The crust influences the quiche to taste savoury and bready, rather than really eggy, which I like. And I can attest to the fact that real men do eat this particular quiche.
