We are having “Arctic Chill.” It got ccccold last night and right now it’s minus 11. And I have no right to complain because I live in Minnesota, but we’ve been so spoiled this year it’s a shock. We Minnesotans know that a real Arctic Chill can be 34 to 35 below, so there’s that. Maybe we’re actually lucky. But today I feel particularly lucky because I don’t have to go anywhere and I have a piece of Simon Pearce Quechee Quiche I’m going to have for breakfast!
You might remember not too long ago, I was going through some of my “old-school” recipes and came up with my Corn Patch Corn Casserole? Well, not too far from that recipe was my recipe Green Chile Egg Bake. This is another recipe that was popular at any work food day when I lived in Denver, although it screams breakfast and/or brunch to me.
I do love me some quiche, how about you? It’s been a long time since I’ve made Quiche. I’ve been all about the Frittatas lately. I think I had just forgotten how good Quiche can be, and then we made this Broccoli, Ham & Cheese Quiche. I gotta say it really hit the spot.
It’s hard to go wrong with Quiche. It’s the perfect, make-ahead recipe for breakfast, brunch or a light dinner. Maybe in front of a cozy fire in the winter or on the deck with a glass of wine on a balmy summer evening. A little side salad or some fruit and you’re set. While I love just about any Quiche, there is one quiche that is the pinnacle of all Quiche. Or is it Quiches? It’s this Quiche Lorraine Cook’s Illustrated version.
