1. Roasted Veggie Quiche at Baguette Café

You don’t have to be an herbivore to enjoy this splendid blend of zucchini, leeks, spinach and blistered tomato slices. Crème blends with goat cheese and Parmesan to build the eggy body, and the secret weapon is the basil pesto that studs the entire pie. $7, 8359 W. Sunset Road.

2. Quiche Tartiflette at Rosallie Le French Bakery

A breakfast quiche that’s good any time of the day, and so big you’ll plan to save half for later … before looking down to see it’s all gone. The tartiflette—a delicacy born in the French Alps—contains thin slices of potato and bits of bacon, plus glorious reblochon cheese. $9, 6090 S. Rainbow Blvd.

3. Quiche Florentine at Delices Gourmands French Bakery

Most quiche spots serve up slices from a full pastry; here they bake individual rounds, so everyone gets their own. This one has onions, spinach and sliced mushrooms mingling with a rich bechamel sauce for a different take on the traditional spinach version. Monterey Jack cheese adds some welcome funk. $7, 3620 W. Sahara Ave. -Jason Harris
