When I think of Saturday mornings growing up, I think quiche. Quiche? I know it sounds fancy and overdone, but I promise it is worth your time.

Just imagine everyone around your apartment or house waking up to the smell of a buttery crust in the oven – it’s just as dreamy as it sounds. Pair it with a fruit salad and it is totally brunch-worthy, or store it in the fridge and you have breakfast, lunch, or dinner for the week (we will not judge).

Not to mention this quiche can be made vegetarian, gluten-free, meat-lovers, or as plain as you like. Just sub out the bacon and green onions for feta and tomatoes, or asparagus and swiss. You can purchase a gluten-free crust and ta-da friendly for even the pickiest of people.

I hope all of your apartments have the savory smell of baking pie crusts soon. And because Julia Child would be impressed, “Bon Appétit.”
