Is Brunch A Breakfast Food?

"A day patched with quilting seldom unravels"

This week seemed to just fly by!  It doesn't seem like it should be Friday already - but guess what - it is!  I was busy yesterday once again cutting and sewing on the Chubby Stars Quilt Along quilt.  Of course, I didn't get as far as I hoped but will work on it again today.  I think I'm beginning to see that in quilting I'm much like my husband in estimating the time it will take to complete a project.  Whenever he gives me a time that he will complete a task - say like mowing the yard - I can almost always double the time and that will be how long it will actually take - he says "1 hour" so I plan on two - lol!  I do believe I'm falling into the same category for quilting.  If I think something will take two days, I just better start planning on four. 

Photo Of The Day:

                         

This is Mrs. Dove.  She hangs on the fence outside my side kitchen window.  She currently is being wrapped in my climbing Shell Vine.  It's really trying to take over most everything it touches.  Someday I would like to get Mr. Dove.  I sure wish I could remember the artists name who created Mrs. Dove because there were many figures that I wanted to collect. 

Today I thought I would share a recipe for Quick Quiche.  I made this for lunch last week and have had several meals from it since.  It was one of those times where nothing that was already prepared sounded good and I wanted something different.  Over the weekend, I told my hubby that he could warm it up for breakfast since he usually makes a breakfast burrito for himself consisting of eggs, bacon, cheese, and a tortilla.  His reply "I can't have quiche for breakfast".  Me "Why not?  It has the same basic ingredients as your burrito."  Hubby "Because quiche is strictly a brunch food and I can't eat brunch for breakfast".  Picture me speechless and shaking my head in wonder - LOL!  Without further ado, here is the recipe:

QUICK QUICHE

Ingredients
1/2 cup to 1 cup crumbled bacon
4 ounces shredded Italian blend cheese
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk


                         
                             Here's everything I used 

DIRECTIONS
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).  Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.

2.  Line bottom of pie plate with cheese and crumbled bacon.  Combine eggs, butter, onion, salt, flour and milk; whisk together until smooth; pour into pie pan.

3.  Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes, until set.  Serve hot or cold


                           
                               Bacon on top of cheese



                         
Ready for the oven.  The little white chunks you see are not curdled milk or bits of egg but the dry chopped onion.

                         

                               Out of the oven and ready to serve


                                                         Served and ready to eat!  So easy and so good.


PERSONAL NOTES
1.  I used the packaged crumbled bacon - no cooking = no mess

2.  I really didn't measure the bacon, I just kept adding until I thought there was enough - a good layer covering the cheese.

3.  I used dry chopped onion instead of fresh - quicker and didn't alter the taste

4.  Reheats very well.  I didn't try it cold - just didn't sound appetizing to me.

My first visit. Love the quote at the beginning of the post. The sunshine award is a great networking idea. Thanks for mentioning my blog giveaway.

Since I am not a breakfast person, that quiche sounds much better than eggs. I might have to give that one a try. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Weekend plans include grand's soccer games, a dinner on Sunday and, hopefully, a little sewing.

HAHA! Dad is crazy! I guess that's what happens when you're raised with more "gourmet" cook. *sigh* Anyway, that looks really good! I think I might try to make it this weekend but not call it a quiche. Maybe I'll call it a breakfast casserole. LOL

Karen said...

That sure looks yummy!

Quilting Mom said...

Thank you Linda for nominating me! Quiche is a favorite of our family for Sunday Breakfast. Brunch is probably a better description for my boys on Sunday mornings! They will love your recipe!

Staci said...

Linda, Thanks for nominating me! It was very kind of you!
Shoot! Quiche is good for every meal, and midnight snacks, and dessert, even! ;) Sounds like my house, my son & husband love quiche and I make it frequently.

Debra said...

That quiche looks delicious! I want to make it right now, although my husband has a strict no eggs for dinner policy. Thanks for the recipe! Yum!

I love quiche! Thank you for sharing a good recipe for that :) It looks really good and yummy!! I usually have mine as lunch or lighter dinner along with a glass of chilled white wine :) Will have to try your recipe soon.

Thanks, Linda for nominating me for the Sunshine Award! What a nice compliment! I'm working on a blog post, but probably will schedule it for Thursday when I'm out of town.

LOL at your DH! Unfortunately, it made sense to me:)

Thanks for sharing your previous post about ALS! My great-aunt had ALS. I'll keep you in my prayers. Absolutely love your attitude!
