Easy Quiche Recipe

Easy Quiche Recipe: a hearty cheese quiche recipe with bacon and apples.
Here is another easy quiche recipe! This one is originally made with a typical French cheese called époisses after the eponymous village in Eastern France where it comes from. I used Brie but you can also add camembert, munster, chaumes, vacherin… or whatever soft cheese you like.

If you really have a hard time finding the perfect cheese for your easy quiche recipe you can always use feta cheese as well. Its fresh and rather sour flavor also works well in combination with the sweetness of the apple. And why not use a blue cheese and a couple of pears instead of apples? Serve the quiche with a fresh rocket salad.
