I love quiche. It’s breakfast food in pie form. Not much is better than that. Except maybe a gooey grilled cheese and creamy tomato soup. But I digress from that tangent and turn to the topic at hand.
There are so many varieties and combinations you can come up with. This is a great example. As long as you have a great base recipe, the creativity is endless. Hot pepper cheese gives this version a kick, while turkey sausage and scallions keep it grounded. White pepper and garlic salt come together to give it a couple extra layers of flavor. Bake, and presto! You’ve got a breakfast star on your hands.
