I heard you! All of you on the Insta-poll who said you wanted the Kale, Shallot, Goat Cheese Quiche recipe for Mother’s Day, never fear.
But for those of you who wanted the Clafoutis, no need for you to fear, it’s coming your way on WEDNESDAY!
So this quiche. You ask, you shall receive. Your mama is gonna be so giddy come Mother’s Day morning when there’s a mimosa bar and a warm quiche.
You know I absolutely love this Mediterranean Quiche recipe, and I can’t believe I’ve ever made anything besides it. And this Ricotta, Asparagus, Pesto Quiche that I made a couple years ago for Mother’s Day was such a hit.
This year, while still serving quiche for Mother’s Day brunch (ok, ok, I’m seeing all the originality in this… but stick with me ;)), it’s lightened up a bit. Kale, Shallot, and Goat Cheese Quiche uses less half-and-half in the filling but still results in a luscious egg base.
Then to amp it up we’ve got…
…kale (always feels like extra health bonus points!)
…slightly caramelized shallots
…herbed garlic goat cheese
YES YOU GUYS – HERBED GARLIC GOAT CHEESE. Have you seen the little packets – packets, is that the word? Tubes? That feels weird. You know what I mean…right?! I digress – packets of goat cheese in the store that have all these flavors!? I usually bypass them because I’m a traditional kind of girl and love making crostini with good ol’ regular goat cheese (I’m looking at you Roasted Cherry Crostini and Fig Compote and Bacon Crostini). But for this quiche…magical herby-garlicy goat cheese was the way to go!
It adds an extra punch of flavor without any of the work! No chopping herbs, no buying herbs, etc… just add the goat cheese, et voila!
The goat cheese adds a hint of tangy flavor in the quiche that balances out the sweeter shallots and creamy egg base. It just works so well, and Mom is going to love it. Or Dad. Or friends. Or BFFs at their bridal/baby/life shower. Whoever you enjoy it with, it will be a hit.
Mostly Mom will love that you made her brunch. You’ll earn the bonus points because it’ll be delicious.
This year my family is going to celebrate Mother’s Day with brunch (hah, are you surprised?!). Kale, Shallot, Goat Cheese Quiche, a nice salad, and of course Clafoutis for “dessert”. Then we’ll hopefully be able to get outside – a little pool deck time, walk by the river, patio mimosa?! Keeping those fingers crossed the sun is in our favor, Mom deserves it!
I’d love to hear – what are your plans for Mom this Mother’s Day?!
