Sticky sweet pastries and fancy egg dishes get all the glory, but we’re here to make a bold statement: The perfect brunch-at-home food is quiche. Think about it: It’s filling, easy to portion out for a crowd, and make-ahead friendly. When you’re gathering large groups of people this holiday season, that’s pretty much all you can ask for in a breakfast dish. Plus, quiche is also a great way to use up leftovers. (It typically only requires a small quantity of bacon or that seasonal veggie you splurged on at the farmers’ market.) Prepping your Christmas morning menu? Any one of these quiche recipes is sure to impress your guest list (including any particularly judgy in-laws).

Broccoli Cheddar Quiche

Even if you don’t typically like broccoli, you’ll fall for How Sweet Eats’s iteration; it’s smothered in cheesy goodness, a spin-off of the beloved soup.

Apple and Cheddar Quiche 

Save a few of those Honeycrisps you bought for Thanksgiving pie to make this dish from Hip Foodie Mom. Sprinkled with thyme, it’s autumn on a plate.

Roasted Beet, Baby Kale, and Brie Quiche

Leave it to Half Baked Harvest to create the most perfect Frankensteinian recipe. Creamy filling? Check. Sweet roasted veggies? Check. Sesame seeds in the crust for a crunchy surprise? Check.

Roasted Broccolini, Bacon, and Caramelized Shallot Quiche

All the top breakfast hits star in this How Sweet Eats creation; there’s bacon, potatoes, sriracha, eggs (of course), and shallots in every bite, plus some broccolini (you know, for nutrients).

Leek and Brussels Sprout Quiche

This may be one of the more unusual quiches we’ve come across, but Sugar Salted sold us on it. Shaved sprouts sautéed to perfection with thyme and butter will make anyone who isn’t a fan of the controversial vegetable into a convert.

Leek and Gruyère Quiche

Rose & Ivy calls caramelized leeks and nutty Gruyère cheese a dynamic duo, and we’d have to agree. This recipe couldn’t be easier. It only has two main ingredients, and you can make it the night before. Simply pop it back into the oven for a few minutes before your guests arrive.

Vegan Tomato Quiche

This savory dish is both vegan and gluten-free, though you’d never know it—Crowded Kitchen packed the flaky crust with a flavorful filling. If you’re in a warmer climate where tomatoes are still going strong, this vibrant meal will cure any winter blues.

Asparagus Quiche

Ditch the traditional piecrust for one made of hash browns (yes, seriously). This option—another How Sweet Eats original—takes a classic quiche combo (asparagus and feta) and gives it a crunchy twist.
