Real Men Bake Quiche

Quiche is the perfect vehicle for showcasing gorgeous spring produce.  After a whole season of heavy meals and fairly monochromatic plates, a vibrant quiche is a welcome change.  While usually reserved for brunch or afternoon tea, quiche can be eaten at any meal.   It’s a protein-packed, portable lunch option for vegetarians –  or anyone who’s tired of sandwiches – and an easy make-ahead dinner for busy families.  Season aggresively and serve with a green salad.
