I know this is back-tracking a few days, but it totally forgot to post one of my family’s Christmas traditions!
Normally, we celebrate Christmas morning with a big old breakfast including quiche and cookies. This year, we went to my uncle’s house for brunch instead, and postponed our quiche making until this past Sunday. I think Travis was excited because that meant he got to be included!
The fun thing about making quiche in our house is that’s a “make your own breakfast” type of deal. My mom makes the egg filling and I cut out the pie crusts, but then each person fills as many cups however they would like using the meats and cheeses. I guess one nice thing about having it after Christmas is that we were able to use the leftover Christmas ham as filling! You could easily throw in some veggies, too!
- Preprepared pastry crusts (we use Pillsbury)
- 1 cup half and half
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. pepper
- Assorted meats, cheeses, vegetables, etc.
Wisk half and half, eggs, salt and pepper. Roll out dough to 1/8” thickness and cut to fit within muffin tins. Spoon meats, cheeses, vegetables into cups, and cover with egg mixture. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350 until golden brown.
Anyone else spy the nice little helper puppy? More like the cheese-begging puppy!
I paired two quiche with a bit of coffee cake, and I was set! My quiche were cheddar and bacon, and the coffee cake is an awesome recipe that we used in middle school home economics class. To this day, it’s still my favorite coffee cake! Thanks, Mrs. Sanders for that .
Thanks, as always, to Jenn for the What I Ate Wednesday link-up!
What’s your favorite way to eat eggs?
