It has taken me years – years - to get to a point where I consistently make the effort to eat breakfast. The morning meal and I have just never been bosom buds. In the mornings, I am not really that into cooking. I just to burn everything I tried to cook before noontime (fortunately, I have conquered that problem). I’ve never really been a cereal girl. I used to love oatmeal, but an unfortunate incident involving a medication that I refused to take killed my taste for that, so I don’t crave it any longer. Honestly, if it wasn’t for my kids, I would probably have never really bought into the “most important meal of the day” stuff.
Fortunately, I have discovered a few foods that are good in the morning … to me at least. Pancakes, English muffins with delish cheese, tomato jam and an over easy egg can be a great treat. And any style of eggs can be a good thing in the morning too.
But I prefer easy. Before 11 am, easy trumps all else. Fortunately, quiche, as fussy as it sounds, is actually really easy. It’s, at most, 10 minutes hands on (less if the veggies are already cooked) and then completely hands off until it comes out of the oven. This recipe makes a quiche that is fluffy like a souffle, like little eggy clouds of cheese and broccoli when you bite in. It also reheats really well in the oven, keeping the crust crunchy. Paige loved it. Unfortunately, Will just wasn’t a fan.
Maybe it’s a guy thing?
