You’ve got to try this recipe my friend shared with me for loaded Breakfast Quiche. With the addition of the potatoes, this Bacon and Potato Quiche is one egg breakfast even my daughter looks forward to eating. It’s easy to prepare, can be made ahead and reheated or frozen.
On the weekends, breakfast usually turns into brunch by the time I enjoy my morning coffee and everyone starts feeling hungry, so with brunch in mind, we make breakfast a hearty one that will last us through the day ’til dinner time. This Bacon and Potato Quiche is hearty and filling and can be easily adapted by varying the ingredients to those your family enjoys.
