Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday so far, mine has been perfect. Every Christmas my family spends the morning together just the four of us which I really enjoy. I get so excited every year to give my family their presents I feel like a little kid, I hardly sleep! Plus I knew this year I was getting a gift that I have been so excited for, but more on that later We always open our family gifts first followed by gifts from Santa (yes my mom still does that haha).
Rosie opened her presents first- catnip of course, from the family.
My dad got a heart rate monitor from Annie and I.
Mac makeup from my sister
I got Annie her first cookbook full of pictures which she loves, now I can’t wait for her to cook for me!
After opening presents we prepared a delicious holiday brunch.
Kiwi, mango, kumquats, and blackberries yum!
Christmas Morning QuicheIngredients:
1 box frozen spinach defrosted
1 small can of mushrooms
1/2 c milk
1/2 c light mayo
1/2 c fresh mozzarella cheese
1 pie crust
2 tbsp pecorino romano cheese or parmesan
salt and pepper to taste
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll out pie crust into a round pie pan coated with cooking spray and trim off excess dough. In a large bowl beat together eggs, milk, mayo, salt, and pepper. Place drained spinach, mushrooms, and mozzarella cheese into pie crust. Cover with egg custard and bake in a preheated oven covered with foil for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 more minutes uncovered. Let rest for a few minutes and top with romano or parmesan cheese and serve. Serves 8.
Assemble your ingredients for the quiche.
Roll your crust out into the pie pan and trim the excess.
Whisk together ingredients for custard.
Fill the pie crust with the spinach, mushrooms, and mozzarella cheese
and top with the custard. Cover with foil and pop into a preheated 400 degree oven for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 more minutes until the top is just browned.
Remove from the oven and let cool a few minutes before slicing. Top with pecorino romano or parmesan cheese and serve!
The light flaky crust complements the rich egg custard perfectly. Packed with fabulous flavor and nutrition, this dish is the perfect addition to any holiday brunch.
With a green smoothie of course.
Annie even tried the quiche and liked it !! Wooo
I’m off to spend the day with my family i’ll be back later with more pictures and my big present Merry Christmas! Wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
