#Brunchweek 2016 - Vegetarian Quiche


 Disclaimer: Thank you to #BrunchWeek Sponsors: Red Star Yeast, Dixie Crystals, Cabot Cheese, Vidalia Onion Committee, Sage Fruits, Nielsen-Massey, KitchenIQ, and Le Creuset for providing the prizes free of charge. These companies also provided the bloggers with samples and product to use for #BrunchWeek. All opinions are my own.

Here's my second recipe for #Brunchweek!

What's Brunchweek, you ask? Head on over to my first post and read through. We have so many awesome prizes up for grabs from our sponsors!

Today I have something my veggie-hating fiance refuses to eat but everyone else enjoys: a vegetarian quiche!

Quiche was a go-to breakfast food growing up. And lunch food. And anytime food, really. I perfected this recipe in college when I was a vegetarian. The secret is the crust--I use crescent rolls. It's a "secret" family recipe, and as much as I enjoy a homemade pie crust, I'll never stray from my beloved rolls.

I love quiches because they taste good hot or cold, for any meal. This would be a great addition to the table for anyone who doesn't eat much meat.

Vegetarian Quiche
  • 1 tube crescent roll dough
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cabot Sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 8 asparagus spears
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 portobello mushroom, sliced
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 tbsp herbs de provance
  • salt and pepper

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a pie tin with the crescent dough, making sure the surface is covered and the triangles of the dough are pressed firmly together.

-In a separate bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients--if you feel like it, arrange the veggies in a pattern on top instead of mixing into the egg.

-Bake for 30 minutes, until firm. Serve hot or hold.
