Friends, for Mother’s Day are you looking for a brunch recipe to try? If you love a crustless quiche, then this Crustless Bacon Gruyere Cheese Quiche is for you!

I’m all about crustless quiches because they’re EASY! No making the dough, and then rolling it out, plus it’s far less calories, and just feels lighter to eat!

My sisters came for the weekend, and after enjoying a quick breakfast and lunch out (Oregon fruit!), shopping, and talking a lot about our Mother. When Mother’s Day rolls around, we just can’t help ourselves. We loved and our mom so much, and still have a hole in our hearts with her gone.

Our mother also loved to “shop until you drop,” and she was a very fast walker, which our husbands can thank her for (kidding, it’s always a struggle of us walking too fast, and our hubbies lagging behind).

We went on a long bike ride. Look how glorious central Oregon is right now! We rode for miles, along the river, through the grassy areas, down by the airport and alongside the horses and the stable. It was a glorious day!

The morning my sis’s left, I whipped up 2 Crustless Bacon Gruyere Cheese Quiche.

Such an easy breakfast!

Throw together these simple ingredients: Eggs, cheese, half and half, bacon, green onions, garlic, and delicious spices.

Serve it with a side of fruit, and something sweet (muffines, scones, crossoints, muffins), and maybe sip on a Bellini cocktail (a mixture of Prosecco sparkling wine and peach purée or nectar) or a Virgin Mimosa.

My family was crazy about this recipe, cheesy, flavorful, and since I’m living with a houseful of men now, I’m here to say Real Men DO Eat Quiche! :)
