Although we’ve called this recipe a Breakfast Quiche, there’s nothing stopping you from enjoying this for lunch or even at dinner!

We’ve used mushrooms and tomatoes in this recipe, but you can also add any extra veg that you have lying around – onions, peppers or even spinach would all work really well.  We’ve also added a couple of tablespoons of quark to this recipe, just to make the egg that bit creamier.  If you’re cooking for dairy free diets (or just really can’t stand quark!), then this recipe would still work really well without it.

Enjoy our Breakfast Quiche hot or cold with plenty of vegetables, or it would also be fantastic as part of a picnic or lunchbox.

What diets is this Breakfast Quiche suitable for?

    HollyMonday 19th October 2020

    Hi Karen, it could be that your oven is cooler than ours we use fan assisted ovens for all of our recipes. You could try increasing the temperature slightly and continue to cook until the quiche is set and golden in colour. Hope that helps!

Hi, I have made this twice now and the taste is great but it always goes soggy on top from the mushrooms presumably. Would you recommend I cook them first?

Reply

    Holly LevellMonday 18th May 2020

    Hi Lynn, I’m sorry you’ve had trouble with the Breakfast Quiches. You could try cooking the mushrooms first to remove some of the moisture or cook the quiche for slightly longer. Hope that helps!
