This quiche is a great make-ahead breakfast, as well as being a nice way to use up any extra salad greens at the end of the week.  

We get our milk from a local farm, Crescent Ridge Dairy. If you’re in the greater Boston area, I definitely recommend checking them out for that old-style “milkman” experience!

Notes

 
As a note, when we took these photos, we only used 2C greens -- we upped the greens to 3C in the recipe since it wasn't enough!

 

If you’d prefer not to use pre-made dough, a great easy one to make at home is King Arthur’s!
