Simple Quiche


Breakfast was never my strong suit. Up until a few years ago I never actually ate breakfast. I would just grab a pastry with my coffee and be on my way.

During my natural living journey I’ve realized that eating for nutrition is essential for our health and eating pastries for breakfast, I’m sorry to say, doesn’t provide the body with essential nutrients to start your day..

Breakfast really is the most important meal and since I started eating it, I’ve noticed that I don’t function properly without it.

This quiche recipe isn’t anything fancy, but it’s tasty and great for busy mornings. Just grab a slice and go!

What I like about this recipe is, you can add whatever you like and it can be made with or without a crust. – If you follow me on Instagram, you probably remember seeing these pics a few months ago.

A lot of you have been asking for the recipe so here it is! 🙂

Recipe Notes

If you prefer a crust, it’s super easy to make your own!

Total time 40 minutes

1 Egg

2 1/2 Tbsp Ice water

1 1/2 Cups Flour

10 Tbsp Butter or Ghee diced into small pieces

Whisk the egg and water together in a bowl

In a food processor pulse the flour and butter together until it’s crumbly (like corn meal)

Add the egg/water mixture into the flour/butter mixture and pulse until a soft dough forms

Place the dough on a floured surface and roll it out to the shape and size of your pan (I usually roll it out larger than my pan so it’s a thin crust)

Put your crust into your pan. Shape it and cut it to fit your pan

Cover the crust with a lint free rag and place in the freezer for 20 minutes

Add your quiche mix and bake for 40 minutes or until mixture is set in the middle
