They’re filling, tasty warm and cold, and most can even be made a few days ahead.
I’m not a morning person, so having breakfast ready to go is such a lifesaver for me – especially when it’s this scrumptious.
And whether you like it loaded with cheese, topped with fresh veggies, or even vegan, I know you’ll love these breakfast quiche recipes.
With or without the crust, you just can’t beat a slice of quiche.
20+ Hearty and Healthy Quiche Recipes for Breakfast and Brunch
If you aren’t starting your day with bacon and cheese, you’re doing it wrong!
I’m kidding, of course. But still, bacon and cheese are a fantastic morning combo.
This recipe takes full advantage of the classic pair and even throws in a bit of spinach for extra health benefits.
Plus, with three types of cheese, salty bacon, and a dash of cayenne, it has plenty of flavor.
No one who wakes up to this delicious dish can have a bad day.
Of course, some people prefer sausage to bacon. In that case, this yummy quiche also has plenty of spinach.
However, it uses sausage as the primary protein source. So expect a meatier taste with a bit less salt.
There’s also plenty of onions – yellow and green – and garlic. It’s an excellent choice if you enjoy the umami earthiness those ingredients bring.
The recipes above (and many below) call for premade pie crusts. They’re easy, tasty, and will even bake from frozen.
But Bisquick is even longer lasting and produces a pretty decent crust too!
You don’t need to make a fancy dough for this – just mix up the few ingredients and pour it over the filling.
Yes, over the filling. It falls to the bottom in the oven and creates an excellent base to hold all that cheese and bacon.
How amazing does this squash quiche look?
That bright orange and green top is so inviting, you’ll want way more than one slice.
I like to make this with leftover butternut squash. In fact, I often cook extra for dinner, so I can make this quiche the next day.
Feta, basil, and tomato are three of my favorite ingredients – and they’re always better together.
So add them to a quiche with eggs and onions, and you’ll have one helluva breakfast quiche on your hands.
It’s ridiculously flavorful and has the perfect texture. And unlike some quiche recipes, it isn’t too eggy.
Do you enjoy the bold tanginess of goat cheese? If so, you’ll appreciate this quiche with goat cheese, red peppers, and caramelized onions.
It’s gorgeous and satisfying, with 12 grams of protein and only 18 grams of fat per serving.
The goat cheese definitely sits front and center, though. So don’t try this one if that isn’t your thing.
Can’t decide between a quiche and hash browns? Don’t! Have the best of both worlds with this hash brown breakfast quiche.
Pastry may be the go-to case for quiche, but why not make your own crust from crunchy, comforting hash browns?
It adds a delightful bit of crunchiness to the otherwise fluffy egg dish.
Try this crustless quiche recipe if you need a low-carb or keto-friendly option for breakfast.
It still has all the important ingredients – eggs, sausage, and cheese – but no carby crust!
Other components include green onions, cheddar, and half & half, with just a dash of hot sauce and pepper!
That puts each serving at only 2 net carbs. You’re welcome!
Here’s another excellent crustless quiche that takes bacon and cheese to a whole other level.
Featuring Brie, Canadian bacon, Parmesan, and Italian seasoning, it’s easy to make, fragrant, and super flavorful.
It only takes about 45 minutes to whip up, too. That makes it perfect for breakfast, brunch, or any other meal of the day.
If you need a quiche recipe that’s low in carbs and calories, I’ve got just the thing.
Each serving of this yummy egg white quiche has only 3.4 net carbs and 101 calories.
Plus, it’s packed with healthy ingredients like spinach, peppers, garlic, and more.
It’s a fantastic option if you want something as nutritious as it is delicious.
11. Zucchini Quiche
Zucchini quiche may look funny at first glance. But if you like cheese, zucchini, and buttery pie crusts, you’ll love it.
Along with three different kinds of cheese (ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan), it’s also full of garlicky and oniony goodness.
Every bite is one you’ll want to savor.
The ingredients in this quiche make it sound more like a pizza than a quiche.
There’s cheese, mushrooms, onions, peppers, bacon, and more! The only thing it’s missing is tomato paste.
Of course, the flaky pie crust is a little different from a pizza crust, too.
It takes about 30 minutes to pull it together and another 20 for it to bake. So it isn’t the quickest breakfast, but it’s certainly one of the tastiest.
Want a quiche recipe that’ll help showcase your cooking skills? This spinach and cheddar quiche could be just the thing.
It’s one of the few complicated recipes on the list, and it all starts with a homemade pie crust.
Then, you’ll mix together the filling.
It takes just shy of 2 hours to prepare and cook this quiche. But if you want something to truly wow the crowd, you can’t beat it.
Let’s transition back to simpler recipes, shall we?
This one uses fewer than ten ingredients and requires only five minutes of prep time.
If that sounds more your style, you aren’t alone. I prefer the quick and easy ones, too. Especially when they’re overflowing with cheddar and fresh broccoli.
This gorgeous, pie-like quiche features salty bacon and gooey Swiss cheese.
The crust is perfect, the filling is silky and creamy, and the shallots add a burst of earthiness to every forkful.
There’s nothing bad about this spectacular recipe. And it’s one you’ll make again and again.
Asparagus is so underrated; we don’t add it to nearly enough stuff. That’s why I love this asparagus and bacon quiche so much.
The eggs, bacon, and Gruyère make it a surefire hit. And the asparagus is just a healthy bonus no one will mind.
It’s a great way to get your kiddos to eat more veggies, too.
Here’s another quiche that calls for a homemade crust. But instead of pastry or Bisquick, you’ll make a simple biscuit crust using self-rising flour.
Thanks to the eggs, the texture is nothing like a sausage biscuit. But it really does taste like a scrumptious sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit from Hardee’s.
Quiche is always yummy when you add bacon and cheese. But it can be just a scrummy without the meat.
This one combines homemade dough, cheese, and eggs with herbs and acorn squash.
It’s herby, earthy, and very, very good.
Vegan quiches are a bit more rare since, ya know, eggs are a big part of most quiche recipes.
Fortunately, this recipe turns out a beautiful, tasty quiche with no eggs required.
It’s bright, colorful, and full of robust flavors. You’ll get hints of garlic, onion, black salt, spinach, and more.
The mushrooms and tofu also make it entirely filling.

And this quiche is no exception.
Chock full of flaky salmon, Gruyère cheese, and oniony leeks, it’s beyond delicious.
If you like the idea of hash brown crusts, but want something a little healthier, try this sweet potato crust recipe.
It has cornmeal, garlic, cloves, and olive oil in the mix. Meanwhile, the filling includes spinach, peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, and goat cheese.
It’s tangy, creamy, chewy, and bursting with bright and fresh flavors.
Even if you’re not a fan of mushrooms, you can’t deny how incredible that layer of shrooms looks on this quiche.
Of, and it’s vegan, by the way! So instead of mushrooms, leeks, and eggs, you’ll need mushrooms, leeks, and silken firm tofu.
Cornstarch thickens the mixture, giving you that smooth quiche texture, and nutritional yeast brings plenty of cheesy goodness.
Let’s end this list with one final crustless quiche.
This one isn’t low in calories (thanks, ricotta!) but is pretty low in carbs – less than 6 net carbs per serving, to be exact.
It’s also extremely cheesy, creamy, and delicious. With mushrooms, spinach, and ham, it’s pretty filling, too.
It’s a safe bet if you want something to keep you full all day.
