This recipe is a family-favorite that I have passed on to many friends over the years. In fact, I have one friend who now makes it more often than I do! Because of the cranberries and apples, it’s a great quiche for the holidays. I serve it for Christmas morning or New Year’s Day.

Make it any time of year whenever you’re serving a brunch crowd—I have yet to find anyone who doesn’t love it!
