When I think of brunch, one of my favorite foods comes to mind – quiche. When I used to work in an office, a friend and I would occasionally go out to lunch at her favorite restaurant. Every time, my order was the same: vegetable quiche with a side salad.
For one thing, making quiche is very easy. I like how creative you can be by using a variety of meats, cheeses and veggies; no two quiches ever have to be quite the same. It’s also a great way to use up leftover bits from the refrigerator. Here is the basic recipe I use.
Quick and Easy Quiche
1 baked pie shell
1 cup grated cheese
Herbs to taste (basil, chives, parsley, etc.)
1/2 cup cooked meat, if desired (ham, bacon, chicken, sausage)
(Optional: add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of a vegetable as well, possibly chopped spinach, red pepper, green onion, chopped broccoli, mushrooms, grated carrots, etc.)
Put all in bottom of pie shell.
Beat two eggs with one cup of milk. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and pour over ingredients in pie shell. Sprinkle top lightly with grated parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for twenty minutes. Cut into slices and serve.
For me, this would be a great Mother’s Day brunch served with fresh fruit and orange juice. Guess I need to add this recipe to my baking time with the girls; maybe they could master it by next Mother’s Day!!
