Brunch is my fave! I’ve never loved breakfast food, so I prefer the wider range of options that brunch usually offers. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse to sleep in a bit, meet up with friends, and maybe enjoy a cocktail (or two).
My husband, on the other hand, is not a fan. It’s not that he doesn’t like the food … no complaints there.
It’s the crowds. He doesn’t like to wait in lines.
So either we need to go early or enjoy our brunch at home. And although I prefer to go out, sometimes it’s easier to skip the complaining (know what I mean?) and enjoy it at home, especially with delicious options like this Mushroom, Kale, and Cheddar Quiche!
Mmm … I love quiche! It’s such a flexible dish, and this Mushroom, Kale, and Cheddar Quiche is one of my go to recipes. It would be the perfect addition to your Easter table, although I definitely enjoy it year round!
This easy kale quiche recipe is packed with my fave ingredients: tender potatoes, savory mushrooms and kale, and delicious sharp cheddar cheese.
There is so much flavor in this cheese and veggie quiche, and yet it’s so easy to make.
How to Make Mushroom, Kale, and Cheddar Quiche
The first step in this easy kale quiche recipe is to saute the veggies. This removes excess water and concentrates their flavor.
Make sure to use a pan with a lid; you’ll need it for the kale. I used my Calphalon Wok, which I love. It’s super heavy duty and so versatile. I use it for way more than stir fries.
To keep things simple, I used a premade pie crust for my Mushroom, Kale, and Cheddar Quiche. What can I say? I love a recipe shortcut!
If you’d like to make your own pie crust though, try the recipe I used for my Tomato, Feta, and Basil Pie. It only takes a few minutes to make and is buttery and flaky.
To assemble this easy kale quiche, you’ll top the crust with cheddar cheese, which will help to keep your crust from getting soggy. The veggies get layered over the cheese.
An egg-milk mixture gets poured over the top, then everything gets baked.
This cheesy quiche recipe is so easy, yet so delicious! And the leftovers reheat well, too … if you have any!
Make this tasty Mushroom, Kale, and Cheddar Quiche part of your next brunch, and you’ll have a dish no one will be able to resist!
