Quiche is one of those meals that doesn't sound good at first. At least it didn't to me. It sounded like one of those fad diet meals. And it certainly didn't invoke feelings of heartiness, fullness, or deliciousness. And then I tried some. Well, damn if I wasn't a fool. I now associate all of those feelings with Quiche and it's my go-to breakfast dish when I need to feed more than just me. It's not just a dish. It's a meal.
