Bacon and Swiss Cheese Quiche And Gazpacho and Avocado Soup Recipes

by Margielynn

Bacon and Swiss cheese quiche served with a gazpacho or avocado cold soup and a salad makes a great meal any time of the day!

Quiche is made with a rich custard of eggs and milk and baked in a crust.

There are so many different ingredients you can use in a quiche. You know they say bacon makes everything better!

If you are looking for healthy try spinach, tomatoes, and peppers and serve with a hot chicken soup or whatever you desire.

To complete the meal serve with your favorite tossed salad, cold or hot soup or fresh fruit.

Salad greens of your choice, tomatoes, mushrooms, sunflower seeds, fresh grated Parmesan cheese and dress with a herb vinaigrette.

Some fruits that are delicious with quiche are honeydew, watermelon, cantaloupe or berries.

A cold soup would be a great accompaniment with quiche also, I have included recipes for a gazpacho and avocado cold soup.

Quiche is a dish that may be served for any meal of the day, from breakfast, brunch, lunch to dinner. This would make a perfect ladies brunch!

I must admit that as a Briton soup is for me essentially hot, for reasons of climate, as Veronica stated.

Veronica on 10/17/2017

My favourite quiche is more of a quiche Alsace which is the quiche base with a mountain of lightly fried onions in it . Add the custard and top with gruyere cheese. Serve hot or cold.

I like chilled soup apple and celery is a good one.

Chilled soups aren't quite so well known in England .... ha.... for obvious reasons ! namely our climate !

Margielynn on 10/17/2017

Awesome! Thanks for stopping in Frank!

frankbeswick on 10/17/2017

Considering that I have a soup making machine for allotment vegetables and kitchen scraps, you have given me an idea for what goes well as a lunch course after the soup! Thanks.

Margielynn on 10/16/2017

You can do either, whichever you like! I just put some of my favorite cold soups, both hot and cold go well with quiche! Sometime I just like a salad! Have a great day Frank!

frankbeswick on 10/16/2017

Sounds delicious, but why do you recommend a cold soup with the quiche rather than a hot one?
