This smoked salmon quiche is filled with bold flavors like fresh dill, smoked salmon and goat cheese. Each bite is balanced with fluffy eggs, golden crust, and rich savory flavor from the smoked salmon.

Perfect for breakfast for dinner or a lazy brunch.



For crust:

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour (more for surface dusting)

½ tsp salt

½ cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, shredded

¼ cup ice water

6 eggs

1 ¼ half and half

1 tsp kosher salt

Cracked black pepper 

A few dashes of your favorite hot sauce

2 green onions, diced

½ cup goat cheese, crumbled

  3. Roll the pie dough into a large circle, roughly ¼ inch thick. Sprinkle an even layer of everything bagel seasoning over the crust and gently roll your rolling pin over once more so the seasoning sticks to the dough.
