Berlin (dpa / tmn) - A few weeks ago, my colleagues and I had an appointment outside and were having lunch in a French bistro. There was an excellent quiche with a side of salad. After that I was immediately in quiche fever.

I don't know about you But there are times when you make a recipe often and regularly, and then it is somehow forgotten. So it was with the quiche.

The hearty cake is so easy to prepare and tastes really good when warmed up in the office. With a salad, a quiche is perfect for lunch. In order to provide variety, I was inspired by seasonal ingredients. The result is this delicious winter quiche with Brussels sprouts and spicy Gorgonzola.
