Lemon parmesan grilled asparagus
Take your humble asparagus spears up a notch by cooking them over the grill.
They get wonderfully charred and smoky with a delightful crisp-tender bite.
Cap them off with a squeeze of lemon juice and parmesan for a refreshing zesty note that’ll prevent your quiche meal from getting too heavy.
Pro-tip: use asparagus with thicker stalks so they’re easier to turn.
Why we love this recipe: it’s perfect for brunch.
I like to serve quiche with a hefty helping of golden home fries on the side for a satisfying lunch or breakfast.
The recipe calls for onions and thyme, but you’re free to use any spices and herbs you want – try some parsley, chives, or even crispy bacon bits.
Psst… don’t forget the dipping sauce.
Why we love this recipe: they taste so much better than the store-bought stuff.
Butter lettuce and watercress salad
Quiche can be pretty filling, so sometimes all you’ll want as a side is a light salad.
This salad has some pepperiness from the watercress and a crisp bite from the radish which provides a satisfying contrast to your soft quiche.
Then everything is tossed in a French vinaigrette which lifts the entire dish.
Why we love this recipe: it’s straightforward but tasty.
Maple sage breakfast sausage
Elevate your breakfast game by whipping up a batch of these breakfast sausages.
This homemade version is made with 100% ground pork – none of that mystery meat or carby fillers!
In terms of flavor, the recipe uses maple syrup and a blend of spices like sage, giving you earthy, savory, and lightly sweet sausages.
Why we love this recipe: you can freeze these patties, so you’ll always have some to cook on short notice.
Garlic mushrooms and sundried tomatoes
If your quiche doesn’t have mushrooms or tomatoes in the filling, serve them on the side instead!
It’s nothing fancy, but the combination of earthy, umami mushrooms and sweet-tart sun-dried tomatoes is fabulous with your creamy quiche.
Why we love this recipe: it’s low-carb.
These prosciutto-wrapped melon slices are an excellent addition to your brunch spread.
They’re light and refreshing, with a delectable sweet-savory flavor.
A drizzle of balsamic glaze takes them up a notch and enhances their natural flavors.
Psst… you can also add a basil leaf for another pop of freshness.
Why we love this recipe: it’s effortless to put together.
Make a salad

Make it winter-y
Say goodbye to oil splashes and messy clean-up by making this internet-famous twisted bacon.
You roast your bacon instead of frying, so you can get a batch good for a crowd done with pretty much no hands-on cooking.
The twisting helps lock in some of the bacon fat, keeping the meat moist but the edges will still get nice and crispy.
Why we love this recipe: it looks as good as it tastes.
This French classic features a medley of soft, tender zucchini, tomatoes, and eggplants drenched in a rich, flavorful tomato sauce.
But you can add pretty much any vegetables you want in.
The key to perfecting this dish? Individually pan-searing the veggies first so they won’t turn into mush.
Why we love this recipe: it makes any meal feel warm and comforting.
Balsamic tomato salad
Quiche is a rich dish no matter the filling, so a fresh and vibrant tomato salad is an excellent accompaniment (especially in the summer).
And you’ll be able to get the dish on the table in just 5 minutes.
Why we love this recipe: this salad will add a bright pop of color to your quiche.
Roasted red pepper sauce
If you’d rather have quiche on its own but want to add more flavor, a delicious sauce is what you need.
I especially like this roasted red pepper sauce – it’s like a fancy, MUCH more flavorful version of the standard tomato sauce.
Roasting the peppers gives the sauce a hint of smokiness.
Why we love this recipe: you get so much use out of one batch – you can use this sauce with any protein, sandwich, pizza, and more.
Boston baked beans
Beans are a great side for quiche because you can use the quiche to mop up all the yummy sauce.
And you want to make sure that sauce is as flavorful as possible – just like in these American-style beans which have bacon, molasses, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and a pinch of brown sugar.
They take 3 hours to cook… but trust me, it’s well worth it!
Why we love this recipe: they’re one of your five-a-day.
Garlic parmesan roasted broccoli
Take your plain old roasted broccoli to the next level with a simple addition – garlic parmesan breadcrumbs!
They form a crispy, cheesy crust around your florets, making them surprisingly addictive.
I wouldn’t blame you if you demolish a whole tray of these.
Why we love this recipe: aside from the broccoli, you only need four ingredients.
Shaved brussel sprout salad
Brussel sprouts and quiche?
Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
The sprouts bring a mild grassiness, which is complemented by the mustard dressing.
Psst… crispy bacon is a wonderful addition.
Why we love this recipe: it’s great if you’re nearing the holiday season.
