After last week’s sprinkle explosion, I think we could all use some vegetables and healthy carbs. How ’bout it?

It may be hard to believe, but both of the quiches (here and here) I have on my blog are incredibly popular recipes. I get a ton of traffic to both of them daily. Along with these blueberry lemon pie bars, but… Life is all about balance, so, that’s ok.

I was feeling that it was high time for another quiche, and when I received some tarragon ginger cheese in the mail from my friends at Sincerely, Brigitte, I knew my next recipe had to go in the eggy, breakfasty direction. It was just meant to be!

Have you ever tasted tarragon? Like actually tasted tarragon? Before I opened this cheese, I wasn’t sure that I liked tarragon, because I always thought it was some weird herb that was only used in French cuisine.

One taste of this cheese and I was immediately proven wrong. I discovered a delightfully bittersweet green flavor, a hint of pepper, and an aftertaste slightly reminiscent of anise (and you know how I feel about anise). I would also describe this creamy, flavorful cheese as “earthy,” so pairing it with mushrooms worked out wonderfully in my kitchen.

AND! The perfect way to give a nod to Earth Day later this week! Celebratory foods. Love ’em.

This quiche is no fuss, easy peasy, make-ahead, make now, freeze for later, serve for breakfast/brunch/lunch/dinner/a snack, and of course, jam packed with fresh and good-for-you ingredients that make it the perfect way to get lots of fiber, protein, and good fats.

And since this is crustless, it’s naturally gluten free (although you can certainly use the cauliflower crust from my cheesy vegetable quiche)! Don’t care about the gluten? Throw it in my favorite homemade pie crust.

Like I said: no fuss quiche. You’ll start with some chopped onion and sliced mushrooms. Sweat ’em out, soften ’em up, then wilt some fresh spinach and tarragon along right into that beautiful veggie mix. 

I decided to amp up the tarragon flavor in this quiche with some fresh tarragon (as opposed to dried and in the spice aisle), which gave our kitchen an incredible aroma and the quiche a stunning flavor. This is a must for supreme flavor.

Once the filling is done, you’ll prepare the egg filling. Just 4 large eggs, some milk (any unsweetened/unflavored kind works here), and some salt & pepper. See? Easy.

Veggie filling + creamy shredded cheese right on top + egg mixture and you’re ready to go. Just about 40 minutes in the oven, 10 minutes of cooling (otherwise it will likely fall apart with the first cut!), and in about an hour, you’ve got yourself one impressive meal.

As I said earlier, you can absolutely serve this for any meal of the day. We actually ate the first round in 2 days. I made it a second time and we managed to keep around for 3 days while practicing extreme self-control. And you better believe we had it for all sorts of meals. Including a snack.

I actually made this quiche at the same time I made these roasted herbed red potatoes, and the two went perfectly together for a lazy Sunday breakfast. DO IT. You won’t regret it.

If you’re hesitant to put mushrooms, tarragon, cheese, and eggs together in your next meal, don’t be. This was one of the most fantastic recipes I’ve ever put together, and I know that it will be making another appearance as soon as we get our hands on some more mushrooms.

I mean, we do live right outside the mushroom capital of the world (yes, they do drop a giant mushroom on New Year’s Eve), so I’m thinking that needs to happen sooner than later.

Plus, if there’s any meal that can get cheese in my belly, I’m all for it. Add in veggies and super flavor? Pshh, quiche alldayerryday!

Recipe Author Lynn April
Servings: 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped yellow onion about 1/2 of a medium onion
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms sliced into 1/4" slices
  • 3 cups baby spinach if using regular spinach, roughly chop
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon remove leaves from stems; approximately 5-6 medium sprigs
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk any
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 freshly cracked pepper
  • 4 ounces cheese any, shredded

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray an 8" or 9" pie plate lightly with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and mushrooms to the skillet and heat while stirring frequently with a spatula or wooden spoon until mushrooms are tender and most of the moisture is gone (approximately 8-10 minutes). Add the spinach and tarragon and continue to cook for 1-2 additional minutes until spinach is wilted and tarragon is fragrant. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a medium size bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour the cooked vegetables into the bottom of the prepared pie plate. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese and use a spatula to spread the vegetables and cheese into an even layer on the bottom of the pie plate. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the vegetables and cheese. Bake for 38-42 minutes until lightly browned on top. Allow to cool at least 10 minutes before serving. Cover leftovers tightly and store in the refrigerator up to 4 days, or in the freezer up to 2 months. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and bake at 350ºF for about 20 minutes.

Notes

You may certainly add a crust to this quiche. Consider a cauliflower crust or a standard pie crust.

Oh my goodness, Lynn! This looks like breakfast perfection. I am a sucker for quiches/frittatas and ESPECIALLY ones with mushrooms. Who knew the mushroom capital of the world was so close, too? LOVE THAT. Making this, ASAP.

This looks like the perfect quiche Lynn! I’ve never had tarragon cheese before but sounds delightful in this quiche!

I am all for no-fuss make ahead meals and this looks incredible! I need to find myself some tarragon ginger cheese though, as that sounds amazing!

My mom makes quiche all the time! I shall have to send her your recipe. Tarragon is so good! We make a creamy tarragon caper dressing to go over grilled chicken in the summer. That cheese sounds SO GOOD!

My mouth still waters when I remember that mushroom omelette from the diner on our morning West Chester…. Now I’m in for more mushroom deliciousness when I get crackin’ some eggs to make this delicious quiche! Cheese + mushrooms + Amy = happiness!!!
I can’t wait to try it out for lunches next week!

“Simply amazing .” The words of my brunch guests today.

Hi Lynn, I’ve just found your site and this quiche sounds wonderful since we’re doing Keto menus at the moment. I was wondering if I could use 50/50 tasty cheese and blue cheese since we don’t have “Sincerely Bridgette” brand here in Australia.
