While my two college roommates were visiting, we made this epic quiche from Bon Appetit. The original recipe calls three heads of garlic, two cups of cheddar, a braided pie crust and almost a full cup of heavy cream (plus crème fraîche!). Yowza.
It was by far the best quiche I’ve ever had, and I’ve thought about it ever since. It would be the sort of thing you could make for your in-laws. Bonus: none of the ingredients are finicky or hard to get a ahold of — in fact, you may have most of them on hand already.
My notes on the recipe: we ended up using 8 cloves of garlic instead of three heads, which just sounded insane, and it definitely was still filled with garlic flavor. We also cut the amount of cheddar cheese to one cup because we literally couldn’t pack anymore in, and used sour cream instead of crème fraîche. The heavy cream we cut down to a few tablespoons, and the quiche was still plenty creamy. For the crust, we made a simple all-butter pie crust and skipped on the braiding. Even with these adaptions, the quiche was decadent and complex. See the full recipe here.
P.S. What do you usually make for Christmas morning breakfast?
