Quiche is great… when you’re in the mood for it. Don’t get me wrong, I love quiche, but it can sometimes be a bit heavy, even when paired with a salad. Here I’ve taken all the same ingredients and rearranged them into a spinach, bacon and comté salad with a soft boiled egg and caramelized onion ranch dressing. Served with some crusty bread it makes for a light yet satisfying brunch.
