Favorite quiche recipes?

I know, it's 2014 and not 1984. But several quiches are my assignment. (Although I think quiche is great. Close kin of frittata.) No asparagus. I just don't have a recent recipe. Thanks very much!

Pegeen, have you ever made this? https://food52.com/recipes... I make it a lot--in fact I am making it for a lunch tomorrow and am using spinach and mushrooms in place of the kale, gruyere in place of the cheddar, and I always use yogurt instead of cream cheese. I've made it a million different ways and it never fails me. Oh, and I prefer the red quinoa--I have no idea why.

There is an absolutely incredible recipe for ham, leek and three cheese quiche on epicurious. It's from Bistro Jeanty in Yountville, CA. Link if you're interested: http://www.epicurious.com...

I like to make a no recipe quiche with caramelized onions and gorgonzola cheese. Pour over your egg custard base and sprinkle on some parmesan cheese, and bake.

I make quiche regularly, and never apologize for doing so. http://thesolitarycook...

Our best trick for a flavorful quiche is to mix up the eggs and milk and add whatever herbs we want the night/morning before. They really steep into the custard which boosts the flavor.
Also, use puff pastry for the crust for an extra decadence.

i'm not sure where the line between quiche and tart falls, but last night I made a butternut squash and sage tart that disappeared within seconds - 250g whole wheat flour + 100g cold butter + 25g butter browned with 5 leaves sage, cooled + salt, some pepper + 4-6 tbsp ice water, kneed, put in the fridge for 30 mins, cube the squash, roast for 30 mins in 200*c, take out, roll out the crust quite thin (3mm?), prebake for 25 mins while the squash cools. Thinly slice one red onion and fry for 15 mins until soft. Mix 2 eggs with 400 ml milk, add 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 80g parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, extra chopped sage (another 5 leaves or so). Once the crust is golden, take it out, spread the onion in a thin, even layer, spread the butternut evenly, then pour the egg mix on top, sprinkle with extra grated parmesan and bake for 30-40 mins, still in 200*c.

PS no shame - remember French cooking was one of the first or best cuisines to practice nose-to-tail and make a meal from almost nothing. Hence, filled crepes and quiches.
