Writer and cookbook author Megan Gordon’s new release, Whole-Grain Mornings, is all about healthy breakfast! Count us in, particularly when it’s a quiche full of smoked salmon and crème fraiche perfect for breakfast, brunch, second brunch, first dinner, you name it. 

This savory tart is my number one excuse for picking up a little smoked salmon at the farmers’ market. I fold it into a crème fraîche custard filling flecked with dill for a simple, versatile midday dish. Since you can enjoy the tart warm or at room temperature, it’s also a fine contender for brunch, outdoor picnics or morning potlucks. Whereas many savory tarts and quiches are weighed down with heavy cheeses, this recipe feels light and fluffy in comparison. It’s great with a small green salad (I love including some bitter mustard greens), seasonal sliced fruit or a simple cup of soup.
