What’s for Breakfast? Roasted Tomato, Mozzarella, and Spinach Quiche

21740764_10213908123838331_4284786164392939414_oI shared the story of our next-gen newlyweds yesterday and how they chose  aliases for this blog, with a teaser about the breakfast they made here at Little House in the Rockies (see Our Next-Gen Couple (Now Married!) and Their Glover Gardens Aliases).

Now it’s time to talk about the breakfast they prepared. It was seriously good.

Here’s how it came down.

We were taking separate flights from our respective home airports and meeting in Denver to drive a couple of hours to our little cabin. Our flight arrived a couple of hours before theirs. The Grill-Meister texted them before we took off: “We are going to grocery shop while waiting for your plane. Any meal requests? And/or food preferences?”

The text response from our new daughter-in-law, to be known here as “The Girl Who is Always Hungry (or just Hungry Girl): “I will make a breakfast quiche if you get the ingredients!”, with the photo below.

We were all over that idea!

And so, yesterday morning, here’s how our marvelous brunch was produced.

The Girl Who is Always Hungry was the boss in the kitchen, and her husband, The Best Eater, was her sous chef. They followed this recipe she found on Pinterest: Roasted Tomato, Mozzarella and Spinach Quiche.

The next-gen newlyweds can cook!

The finished product was wonderful – rich, creamy, filling and yet healthy-tasting with the tomatoes, herbs and spinach. It is a recipe that could be tweaked easily, with additions or substitutions like artichoke hearts, grilled vegetables, roasted corn or breakfast meats.

If we’re lucky, we’ll get a repeat performance during this long weekend at Little House in the Rockies. Check out the recipe yourself at  Roasted Tomato, Mozzarella and Spinach Quiche.
