Fiddlehead Quiche

On Mother's Day, my husband never fails to find a sentimental card and is the "man behind the magic" in the gifts the kids give me. He's also the guy that makes the coffee. Someday, though, I'd like to teach him to make quiche. Yes, I know it's standard and cliché, but I would love quiche for Mother's Day breakfast. Just once. I mean, quiche that I didn't make myself.
