Not too ‘krauty’ sauerkraut quiche

Not too ‘krauty’

This recipe comes from Spokesman-Review reader Elizabeth Russell, who got it from her sister who lives in Southern France.

It is, Russell said, “super easy and tasty.” It doesn’t, she said, taste too “krauty.” In fact, “even kids like it. Just don’t tell them what’s in it.”

Russell serves it with a leafy salad, green beans and a selection of brauts.
