One of the conundrums we backyard chicken keepers face is the abundance of farm fresh eggs we have come this time of year. That’s why I love to make quiche. They are so quick and easy and the recipes can be varied based on what you have on hand in your refrigerator. Simple egg and cheese recipes are always delicious and satisfy your guests who like things a little on the plain side. This recipe has the addition of onions which add a little more flavor without being too hot for sensitive pallets. Quiche is the perfect main-dish for a Mother’s Day Tea or Brunch and with all those eggs stacked up in your refrigerator you can make a few! Avoid the crowds and high costs of eating out and make your own spread from scratch! Here are some of my favorite variations on the basic egg and cheese quiche recipe sure to please mom and the whole family.
Some chickens lay smallish eggs so you may need to vary the egg count if you have small to medium eggs like we do. We have Easter Egg-er chickens and they tend to lay smaller eggs than some of the other breeds.
7 eggs if smaller 5-6 if using large eggs
