My husband used to think that quiche was for chicks and sissy-men. My man also used to tease a guy friend in college who carried a “man purse”. Yes, my guy can be rather stereotypical, but I love him and he quickly was eating his words once I began making quiche at home and he realized what a protein packed and portable breakfast it offered. He realized that quiche is for the big tough guys too! When I have it on hand he can grab a quick slice in the morning and pop it in the toaster oven and be good to go and properly fueled for the day. And, my husband who used to mock a “man purse” is the proud owner of a COACH (for men!) briefcase that the whole family refers to as his “murse”! Oh how the mighty (tough guy) has fallen…. 😉
Quiche seems to have a fluffy reputation to overcome but it is an amazing breakfast for company, or just to make for yourself and your family. I have made it with various additions and it never fails to satisfy! You can fry up some bacon and crumble that in, or some diced ham, or some delicious breakfast sausage. YUM! I love this recipe with feta cheese, but feel free to leave it out if you aren’t a fan of feta.
As always, play around with it and make it your own! Don’t forget to comment and let me know your favorite combinations!
