Table of Contents

To make this article easier to navigate, I’ve split up the recipes into 5 different categories. Feel free to jump to whichever ones you are most interested in!

Potato Side Dishes for Quiche

The first type of side that works great with quiche is potatoes! What I love about potato sides is that they often work no matter when you’re serving quiche.

For example, the “Potato Nibbles” that you’ll see soon, would go well with quiche during breakfast, brunch, OR dinner!

Most potato dishes and other roasted veggies also work great for serving with quiche during the wintertime when you need something warmer.
