Served on a pretty pie plate, these recipes are springtime showstoppers.

Start your day with this warm and savory quiche. Chop vegetables, shred cheese, and cook bacon while the dough for the crust chills in the refrigerator.
We like the creamy, custardy consistency of this quiche when it's baked for 35 minutes. If you prefer a firmer texture, bake an additional 5 minutes.
We’ve used a combination of convenience products, like frozen hash brown potatoes, frozen chopped spinach, and refrigerated breadstick dough, to cut down on prep time, something that never hurts when preparing a brunch or breakfast meal.

Serve this quiche for Sunday brunch, and enjoy high-quality protein from the eggs and egg whites, calcium from the cheese and milk, and vitamin C and folate from the broccoli.
If you don't have cooked rice on hand, use boil-in-a-bag rice (such as Success Rice) and follow the microwave directions. Cool the rice slightly before adding egg.
