Three Cheese Quiche with Grits Crust is a tasty, protein packed brunch or dinner. Vegetarian and Gluten Free.
So as I’m writing this post mid morning I’m actually sitting here eating some of this leftover Quiche. Yum! Three Cheese Quiche with Grits Crust is a great gluten free option for quiche lovers.
I think it’s almost better the second time around. The weather here today is beautiful and it’s suppose to be a really nice weekend.
HAPPY FRIDAY Everyone! Can you believe we are only a couple of weeks away from Christmas? I still have so much to do but that’s okay cause I really do enjoy it.
Hopefully I can find time to get outside today and enjoy this 70 degree weather in December.
So anyway back to Quiche talk.
This Three Cheese Quiche with Grits Crust is:
- A great thing to make if you’re having guests over.
- Can be made ahead and keeps well in the fridge for several days.
- So it can be a quick breakfast to grab and reheat.
I only started making Quiche several years ago. The first time I actually ate Quiche was when we were visiting friends on an overnight trip.
They served it for breakfast the next morning. That’s when I quickly became hooked and have been experimenting with making all different versions of Quiche that are gluten free.
So hopefully you won’t tire of all my Quiche posts.
My mom cooked a lot but for some reason this isn’t anything I ever recall having. About as fancy as I ever remember breakfast being was some occasional omelets.So I hope you Enjoy this Quiche!!!
