Farmhouse Summer Quiche

I have another Quiche recipe for y’all, and it probably won’t be the last. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Quiche is one of my favorite foods. I am sharing this recipe as Father’s Day is upon us.  This would make a delicious, hearty brunch for all those special Dad’s out there! Pair with some millionaire’s bacon and hash browns for a tasty meal.

A few tips for making a fluffy Quiche: If you use heavy whipping cream, it will be fluffy. Heavy whipping cream has lots of calories though. You can substitute with half & half to help make it lower in fat.   If you are making this Quiche to serve your guests and really want to impress, I would recommend making it with the heavy whipping cream.

Another tip for making your Quiche fluffy is add in an extra egg white or two in addition to the six whole eggs the recipe calls for.  Extra egg whites will make your Quiche fluffy.

You can make Quiche with or without pie crust, your preference.  If you are watching carbs or calories, cutting out the pie crust will help. I prefer the crispy crust though! If you decide to make it with a crust, press thin strips of foil just around the rim of the crust while it bakes to prevent the crust from burning.

  1. This looks so good! My family loves quiche, but I don’t make it often enough. Thank you for directing me to your recipe. I’ll be sure to make it with heavy whipping cream next time!

    1. Thank you! Oh we eat quiche every week. My husband is so over it, haha. My son is starting to go through a picky phase so this is one way I can still sneak in some veggies without him knowing!
