I hosted Christmas brunch this past Christmas for my family, and my husbands family. It was the first time that our parents had met, and I had tons of anxiety about how the meeting would go since we would be getting married in 6 months. To top the normal anxiety over two completely different families meeting, I also had to create something for everyone to eat. Our families are complete different, not only in their daily lives and beliefs, but also in their tastes in food. My mother in law is a vegetarian, which is  no problem, but she is also allergic to night shade veggies (which is basically everything I eat!). And my parents are not fans of beans, rice and burritos, which is what my mother in-law really only eats. A week before Christmas, I finally decided on a menu. I would do bagels, homemade veggie cream cheese, orange juice, etc, but I still needed a main star dish!

So I finally figured out that I would make a quiche. I did some research and found that all quiche's start out with basically the same ingredients, and then you can add whatever extra ingredients that you would like. I decided that everyone would like cheddar cheese (who doesn't love some Vermont cheddar cheese) and spinach. The more I make this dish, the more I experiment with different added ingredients, my husband especially loves when I add bacon to the  mix :)


Ingredients

4 eggs

1 cup half and half

1/2 cup mayo

2 tablespoons flour

1/3 cup minced onions

8 or so, ounces of shredded cheddar cheese

2-3 cups chopped fresh spinach

5 cooked strips of bacon (I used have the amount, because I only put it on half of the quiche)

salt, pepper, garlic powder

1 frozen deep dish pie crust

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Hand whip eggs, half and half, mayo, and flour in a bowl. Then fold in onions, cheese, spinach, bacon, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Pour mixture into the pie crust, and place in oven. Bake for 45 mins. Remove from oven and let sit for about 10 mins to set up.
