Serve our Broccoli Bacon Quiche to your friends at the next Brunch! Brunches are so popular these days, with friends meeting at a number of popular spots around town.
But often eating out means reservations, and if not, waiting in long lineups to get in!
Waiting in line to wait to eat is not my idea of good time, and certainly not for my friends. So I prefer to host a brunch in our home, a wonderful way to entertain.
It’s always on the weekend, the house is usually cleaned up and it gives me a chance to really spend time with friends and family since the cleanup is a breeze and can be left until later.
I love to fuss with the table – my grandmother and mother taught me this. Real cloth napkins, fun place mats or tablecloths, fresh flowers and my best dishes!
I remember the first brunch I hosted so many years ago. I was determined to serve Eggs Benedict and had never made Hollandaise sauce in my life.
My best friend arrived a few minutes before and started to laugh as soon as she came into the kitchen. There I was, with every saucepan I owned either on the stove or in the sink, trying to follow an elaborate recipe from a French cookbook!
My friend Connie saved the day, whipped up the hollandaise in one small pan, and the brunch was a huge success.
So my lesson was learned, and I turned my attention to where my talents did lie – and that was baking delicious pies and tarts.
Quiche is really an egg pie with lots of yummy ingredients.
My idea of a successful menu allows for many foods to be prepared ahead and frozen – especially my famous Broccoli Bacon Quiche!
With that main item out of the way, I can concentrate on other items, like different types of salads, antipasto, whatever I choose.
