The buttery puff pastry is the perfect crust to this Veggie Quiche! Serve one for brunch or make it for dinner!
Mother’s Day is around the corner. I’m curious, what kind of traditions do you have in your family?
Around here we start the day by going to church, and usually end up going out for brunch afterwards.
Dinner is typically not as important, as we have usually spent the day cleaning the yard and gardening, so we tend to fend and make salad or sandwiches.
In the midwest, Mother’s Day is the well known “safe” date to start planting gardens! Threats of frost are now in our past.
Admittedly, I am really going to miss my gardens this year. Since moving from Ohio back to Illinois, the property we live on just isn’t garden friendly. We have big beautiful mature trees, that seem to offer a wonderful shade to our yard, yet not enough sunlight for a garden to thrive.
Back in Ohio, I had a huge strawberry patch, raspberries, and three raised beds filled with vegetables and herbs! While I am going to miss all the fruits of the soil, tending to those huge gardens was a daily chore.
This first year I may enjoy the time not spent raking, weeding, etc….yet I will for sure miss all the vegetables that my gardens gave us.
Vegetables that would be perfect in today’s quiche!
How to make a Garden Veggie Quiche
Normally when I make a big quiche I use a pie crust. And meat. We love a sausage and spinach combo!
But after making some delicious mini quiche with puff pastry a few weeks ago, I received several messages wondering if those mini quiche can be made into a larger quiche.
The answer is YES. And you can use any fillings you desire. Whether you love meat or just veggies…or even a combo of both, fill it up!
I used a combo of broccoli, peppers, and mushroom in today’s recipe. It turned out delicious. I think I know what I’m requesting for brunch on Mother’s Day.
Can Quiche be made ahead of time?
Yes! You can make this Veggie Quiche recipe the day before. Store in refrigerator until ready to heat and serve.
How to reheat Quiche
Bake leftover quiche in a 325 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Just until warmed.
Quiche is normally served at room temperature.
Can you Freeze Quiche?
Bake your quiche and cool completely.
Wrap quiche in plastic wrap and an airtight container or ziploc freezer bag.
Make sure to use a “freezer to oven” safe pie plate…whether it’s metal or disposable is best.
Cook frozen quiche in 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes. You may need to put pie shield on the crust (or wrap with foil) so the edges don’t burn.
