Favorite Quiche Combo

I need to have three different types of Quiche for a Brunch that we are throwing. I am doing a spinach, a leek, and I need at least one more that has meat or fish in it. If you have any recipes for your favorite unique or exciting combos, please share. TIA!!!

  1. My hubby makes a tasty Crab, Swiss Cheese, Green Onion and Mushroom quiche. Just follow your basic quich recipe and sub in these ingredients.

      Does he use real crab or the Krab meat. I was wondering if I could get away with Krab.

      1. re: carinole

        Most of the time he uses Krab and it tastes great. If Krab offends people, I bet with would also be good with shrimp.

    2. I've been toying with the idea of a bacon leek one for the last few days.

      Mushroom and ham is always popular.

      1. Two favorites of mine:
        Italian sausage, peppers onions mushrooms and
        Asparagus and ham

          What kind of cheese do you use? Or do you not use cheese?

          1. re: carinole

            Usually mix swiss,cheddar and jack

            1. re: carinole

              I also try to use med cream, I've experimented making quiche a thousand different ways, even low cal, but the best is real eggs and cream.

          2. if you can stand a bit of heat... try this one... I just add some chorizo (and extra cheddar!) to the mix...

            1. smoked salmon in quiche is always popular. I love it.

                Does it take on the texture of cooked salmon as it bakes? Or is it just put on top after the quiche is done?

                1. re: Pei

                  No, I don't find that the texture changes at all. I just slice it up and put it in with the egg. It's quite oily so it doesnt' dry out or anything in the custard.
