One of our most requested quiche recipes is A Hungry Man’s Quiche. Readers say, “Fast, simple, and outstanding!” Perfect for brunch or a light dinner.

You can make any number of swaps such as using sweet potatoes for white, trade diced chicken for ham, and use any kind of cheese that strikes your fancy. Or, you can make the recipe as is and enjoy a guaranteed delicious and crowd-pleasing egg dish that will surely be the hit of any meal.

This is our go-to fare when invited to a brunch. Except for the crust-making part, quiche is a very easy and versatile dish to create. (And you can always use a shortcut of buying a premade, uncooked crust. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone!)

It’s a keeper!
