Happy, Healthy Mother’s Day Brunch
Happy Mother’s Day! It’s been a terrific one for me. My mom and sister Stacey stopped by for a light, simple brunch and some good chat over coffee. I tried a new crustless quiche recipe that completely rocked – only 150 calories/slice but you’d never know it. Loaded with the flavor of Canadian bacon, onions, spinach, and cheese, I’ll definitely be making it again. Recipe, from Cooking Light magazine, is here.
We filled out the rest of the meal with good ol’ (lowfat) Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage (brown it on a parchment-lined baking sheet in the oven for no mess, no fuss), fresh fruit, and Baby Buddhas (streusel coffee cakes) from Lucia’s. A little sweet, a little salty, none of it too rich, that’s my kind of brunch.
(I haven’t tried it specifically with this recipe, but I’d bet that this quiche would freeze beautifully. Wrap individual pieces tightly in layers of plastic wrap. Reheat in the microwave for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.)
It's delicious, and filling, but not a gut-bomb like a lot of quiche is. My mom and Stace absolutely loved it. Glad I poked around for a new angle - I'm tired of my own frittatas. This was definitely a new, interesting technique.
have to try that quiche...
