Reuben Quiche - An Affair from the Heart

For a couple of years now, I have had a special relationship with Frank’s Kraut.  Frank’s is the sauerkraut I grew up on.  The only one we have ever used. Coming from a Polish/German background, that is really saying something!

A couple of years ago at Easter, I shared a recipe — actually more of a “How To” for my grandmother’s Polish Sausage & Sauerkraut.  I tagged Frank’s in the post and we’ve been good friends ever since! They are such an awesome company, and developing recipes for them is always such a pleasure.  It’s so much fun to find deliciously crazy fun ways to add sauerkraut into food.

Like Chocolate Cake.  Seriously.  The BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE I make is made with Sauerkraut.  How about Pizza?  Ever had Reuben pizza? What about topping a baked potato with Reuben?  YUM.

Well .. .  you know what was missing?  Breakfast.  Breakfast just needs a little more Reuben in it’s life.

Quiche.  Quiche is perfect.  And — I mean, What’s NOT to LOVE about QUICHE??

I have a base recipe for quiche that I use all of the time.  It’s easily adaptable for your favorite ingredients.  Our favorites are Bacon & Swiss, Green Chile & Sausage,  and Ham & Smoked Gouda.  My family freaks out when I make quiche … you could say they kinda like it.  This one is a keeper.  The flavors were fantastic.

You could use leftover corned beef for this OR just ask your grocer’s deli to cut you some deli corned beef.  Have them cut it on the thicker side.  Then you can cube it up easily.

Use your favorite crust recipe, or a purchased pie crust (we won’t tell) and layer the ingredients inside.  Swiss cheese, corned beef and Frank’s Kraut.

Pour the egg mixture over the top and pop it in the oven.

Bake it up until it’s set in the middle and golden brown on the top.  Let it stand about 5 minutes before slicing into it.  Serve it hot with a side of fruit.  Prefect weekend breakfast — OR weeknight meal.
