Today I’m welcoming another guest post from Tara of Noshing With the Nolands. I know Tara through various blogging groups and especially through the Sunday Supper movement that shares recipes weekly to encourage bringing families back to the table together at least once a week. Today, Tara is sharing a tasty spring recipe for quiche. I LOVE quiche and every time I have it I wonder why I don’t make it more often because it really is so easy. You can also make it ahead which is an extra bonus! I can’t wait to give Tara’s recipe for Spring Herbed Brie Quiche a try. Welcome Tara!
I am so thrilled today to be doing a guest post here on Brenda’s lovely blog. Spring has sprung finally after that long cold winter and I am wanting to eat fresh and light dishes. Quiche is light tasting but full of wonderful richness too, you only need a small slice to be satisfied and then a nice green simple salad and you have a gorgeous lunch or special dinner.
My husband makes a brie and herb omelet all the time so that is what inspired me to show you this today. If you don’t like the herbs I have selected, there are lots to choose from or create your own combination. I love tarragon though and feel it is a very underutilized herb. I love the slight licorice taste and it combines nicely with other herbs such as dill and thyme. I reduced the thyme as I find that can be a very powerful taste and can overwhelm other flavors. The brie adds some salty creaminess to the eggs, giving you a memorable quiche.
I hope you try this one and enjoy it!!
