One of my favorite flavor combinations in the world is tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella cheese. It works. Caprese salad is probably the most recognizable way to enjoy these ingredients but they multi task like nobody’s business. Try them on pizza, in pasta, on toast and yes even in quiche. Quiche is also a workhorse of a dish. What does that mean? It’s good served hot or cold and it’s great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. You can’t say that about too many dishes now can you.
Quiches couldn’t be easier to make. You can use a refrigerated pie crust as a time saver (raising hand) or you can use a homemade version, completely up to you. This quiche is vegetarian (hello Meatless Monday Menu) full of protein and packed with flavor the whole family will love. Okay hopefully the whole family, my boys picked out the basil but they just don’t know any better at the moment so they get a pass. For now. Luckily they love eggs and they’re cute.
I’m happy to be part of the Darling Dozen Blogger Team for Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs where I create and share egg-cellent (couldn’t help myself sorry. Okay not sorry.) recipes. I don’t have to worry about my eggs because I know when I use Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs they’re SAFE. “Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs are pasteurized in an all-natural, gentle water bath pasteurization process to eliminate the risk of Salmonella. The vast majority of eggs sold in grocery stores are NOT pasteurized. Safest Choice™ offers peace of mind when making recipes calling for raw or undercooked eggs, and removes the worry of cross contamination.
