Brunch has always been one of my favorite things to do on the weekends so this past weekend I decided to make brunch for Phillip and I at home. This Asparagus and Feta Quiche was a crowd favorite (meaning Phillip, he is the only one here). A quiche can be made so many ways, it’s endless. You can’t really mess this up. So give it a try!
A quiche of any kind is my go-to for any at home brunch or vacation breakfast. Think about it, anytime you have friends coming over or on vacation you aren’t trying to reinvent the wheel with eggs Benedict or gourmet stuffed french toast. You want to prep something in under 15 minutes and pop it in the oven so you can enjoy those mimosas with your friends while you wait for your meal to cook!
I used to make a mean broccoli and cheddar quiche for years. However, typically the frozen broccoli florets were always just a little to soggy for my liking. Fresh broccoli is a great way to solve this problem but to be honest my lazy side is coming out here when I say chopping up broccoli leaves such a mess. There are always broccoli pieces all over the counters and somehow on the floor too. That’s when the Asparagus and Feta Quiche came to life.
If you do have more time to devote to making a delicious brunch for everyone, you must check out our Peanut Butter Banana Bacon Oatmeal. Yes, it’s a mouthful but it is AMAZING. It definitely takes longer to make but it would be well worth it. Or try this out for just yourself and not feel the need to make a pound of bacon. Does anyone else’s house smell like bacon for an entire day after after cooking it?
From our kitchen to your, cheers!
