I love brunch. Who doesn't? I'm not sure I've ever come across a person who doesn't enjoy a smattering of both breakfast and lunch favorites all together on one glorious buffet. Perhaps I failed to mention the buffet part of brunch, but that is my favorite brunch style.
My ideal brunch buffet would include lovely pastries, jams and jellies, vases of flowers, a selection of teas and coffees, and of course, eggs. I love eggs. Love them, love them. I'm not sure there is a way that to prepare eggs that I don't like. Whether they're baked, fried, scrambled, poached, deviled - you name it and I like it. They're egg-cellent.
Bad joke, I know, but I couldn't help myself.
I think my love of eggs comes from my Great Grandma, because she, too, was an egg fanatic. She lived to be 94 years old and ate an egg every day of her life. I think it's safe to say she would definitely approve of these Mini Quiches with Spinach, Bacon and Parmesan.
These little quiches are so simple to make and they're absolutely perfect for your Mother's Day brunch. Or any brunch, really. They're fluffy egg bites filled with nutty parmesan, sweet caramelized shallots and sautéed spinach all topped off with a touch of salty bacon.
Plus, the fact that you can make them ahead of time and reheat them right before the party means you have more time to put your finishing touches (aka: glitter) on your Mother's Day gifts. Every finishing touch should include glitter. Just like every brunch should contain Mini Quiches.
So, when you're planning your big Mother's Day brunch, don't forget to whip up a batch of these Mini Quiches with Spinach, Bacon and Parmesan for all of those wonderful Moms in your life. Trust me, they'll love them. Oh, and don't forget to give them a lot of hugs. They'll love those, too.
Happy Mother's Day!
