I hope you all had a great weekend. It sure was rainy here…actually…it is still raining right now. It’s not helpful on a Monday morning. I have a yummy recipe to share with you today. If you have never made a quiche…I would try this recipe.
Normally I shy away from quiche. I am ones of those people who are very fickle about eggs. They have to be just right. Not too runny. Not to hard. Goldilocks I suppose.
Anywho, I made this quiche for a teacher appreciation breakfast. It smelled amazing. It tasted even better. The best part is you make it ahead and then just gently heat it up when you want to serve it. I know, I was very concerned about the heating it up part….but I am telling you…it was amazing.
This would be great to serve for Mother’s Day….fix it the day before. This only serves 6 smaller portions….so you may want to consider it a “side dish” . Just a thought…
Also, I made mine own go to pie crust….because seriously, it is no fail. You can however buy the ready made frozen pie crust for this recipe( you will only use one crust) Be sure to let it thaw so that you can work it into the pan.
