From the Test Kitchen

These signature quiches achieve the perfect balance between delicious vegetables and two kinds of cheese. Whisked together with the eggs, ricotta creates a rich, fluffy base for the filling, while crumbled goat cheese adds a delightfully tangy layer on top. And in addition to earthy kale, we’re using sweet onion, caramelized for extra flavor. The quiches pair perfectly with a salad of crisp butter lettuce and aromatic chives.
