Eat This: Broccoli, Cheddar & Bacon Quiche

Broccoli Cheese and Bacon Quiche

Love having women over to live life with me, eat girly food, and be creative. This was the scene at our dining room table the weekend of Thanksgiving.  I had some sweet girlfriends over to celebrate creativity and enjoy getting to know one another.

With any girls’ brunch, I think some egg dish is customary, right?  Well, as I am cooking through Jenna’s blog, I came across this one.  My learned lesson from this: read the instructions.  I figured eggs cook fast, so it can only take about 30 minutes, right?  Wrong.  The quiche didn’t get done for an hour and I would have known that had I read the directions.  But, during the waiting time, we stood around in the kitchen and talked.  So, it was worth the wait – when we all dug in and enjoyed the savory goodness for breakfast.
