Next week many will celebrate moms and vie for the chance to show how special this important woman is in their lives. Chances are a special brunch or get together will be planned to wish a Happy Mother’s Day. You may decide to let mom have a few extra minutes of sleep or maybe breakfast in bed is more your style. If the latter is the case, then this Mother’s Day Quiche recipe will fit the bill nicely!

I always forget how easy quiche is until I start to make one and then say to myself ‘I should make this more often!’ The best part is you can add whatever you like to the mix & it will be delicious no matter what! We have many tastes in our household so this recipe works for both the meat eaters by including bacon, ham or sausage and satisfies the vegetarians with additions of any vegetable combination you can think of. Mother’s Day Quiche works great as breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!

Mother’s Day Quiche

  • 1 unbaked pie shell (9-inch)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms (optional)
  • ½ stick (4TBSP) butter
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¾ cup grated swiss cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cup half and half
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. thyme

How to make:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place unbaked pie shell in a square 8×8 baking dish or in 9 inch pie plate. Set aside.

               

Melt butter in frying pan and sauté onions and mushrooms (optional) or any vegetable you decide to add and cook until soft.  Add to bottom of pie shell.

               

Sprinkle cheeses on top.

In bowl, beat eggs; add half and half, add garlic salt & thyme and whisk well.

Pour egg mixture into pie shell and bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes.

Serve warm or cold. A nice green side salad goes great for brunch, lunch or dinner.
