Pioneer Woman Quiche Recipe

This Pioneer Woman quiche recipe is a great way to start your day. Whip it up for breakfast now!

Quiche is a fantastic breakfast food that most people think is straight out of France. The truth is, quiche is originally a German dish.

Specifically, quiche was created in the German kingdom of Lothringen, which later became Lorraine. Now you know where the name Quiche Lorraine came from!

Originally there was no cheese in this dish, only eggs, cream and bacon. Thank goodness someone got their wits about them and started adding delcious cheese.

If you add onions, the quiche suddenly originates from the Alsatian region (and also gets a lot tastier!).

These days you can add all sorts of things to quiche - spinach, ham, and even potatoes are common additions. 

You can make them big or small, with pastry crust or even regular bread dough. We've got a version that's made in the pressure cooker, or you can make this version from Pioneer Woman.

Ree definitely knows how to make a good quiche, and her Salisbury Steak recipe is pretty fantastic too.

If you're planning Mother's Day brunch with this quiche, toss some of our Lemon Cream Scones on the table too. It's the perfect sweet and savory combination for a beautiful celebration.
