Caprese Quiche is a total showstopper and much easier than you would imagine.

Caprese Quiche from

If there are two things growing like weeds in our garden this summer, it’s cherry tomatoes and fresh basil. I can’t possibly make enough homemade pesto with the basil or hit a point where we’ve had tomatoes in everything from salads to roasted with pasta, so I wanted to come up with a simple summertime dish to really showcase the beauty of these fresh ingredients.

Our family loves Ham and Asparagus Quiche, but since this is Meatless Monday, Caprese Quiche is a great one-dish vegetarian meal with tons of protein from the eggs, milk and cheese, the crispy pie crust can be homemade or store bought. Those sweet cherry tomatoes are as good as they’re going to get in the summer, so make sure to take advantage of them whenever you can. 

Make a few of these for a backyard party or even as a gift for a friend and serve them with a tasty Salad Platter for a complete meal that will win everyone over. Tag @weelicious on social to show me your summer fun!

    We have lots of basil and tomatoes in our garden. I made this quiche this morning, and it was really good. I used a refrigerator crust and whole, slicing tomatoes since we did not have cherry tomatoes. Thanks for a great recipe!
