Easy Mother’s Day Quiche Recipe
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!
