The end of the summer has been busy. Canning and preserving, entertaining house guests, back to school shopping. And rather than cope by eating out all the time (okay I still ate out too much), I had another answer. Quiche.

From above

The first quiche in this journey was an old favorite, Sun-dried Tomato and Spinach Quiche. After this, I decided to increase the protein–plus use up my leftover dill from pickle making. The result was a Whitefish Dill Quiche.

Thankfully, quiche is a seriously versatile dish. Make it ahead, make it just in time. Eat it cold, eat it warm. Make it for breakfast, make it for lunch. Freeze an entire quiche or freeze a couple slices. 

Prick crust bottom and prebake-

Your biggest decision is probably to use a crust or skip it (for about a 100 calorie/serving savings). I like the flavor of the crust so that’s usually how I make it. But I’ll go crustless too (see notes for instructions) if I’m being really good.

Mmm–dill!

Another couple weeks, and we should be back in a routine.  That means, hmm, two more quiches? 

Give Whitefish Dill Quiche a try—it may help get you through the busy fall too!

    This sounds absolutely delightful, Inger – what do you think of using scallops? I want to try it first using fish I can get at our farmers market but the perfection of your recipe has me already thinking of adaptations!

    I never thought in adding white fish into a quiche…like the addition of mushroom and dill…again, thanks for another wonderful recipe…love the inspiration!
