Quiche is one of my very favorite dishes to serve my family and is so easy for entertaining. Rather you are having a holiday brunch or a big family Christmas party, quiche is the perfect dish. It can be served hot right out of the oven or at room temperature.
The key to easy holiday entertaining is to have your freezer and refrigerators stocked with a range of must have ingredients. There are over 3,700 different items in the frozen food aisle of your grocery store to help you out. Some of my must haves are nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables that are frozen at the peak of freshness, meatballs to ready to go into the slow cooker for appetizers, and don’t forget the ice cream!
During the holidays I always keep refrigerated pie crusts, they are one of my favorite shortcuts for the holidays. Eggs, cheese and gallons of milk (literally gallons – I have 3 boys!) are always in my fridge. The refrigerated dairy isle is packed with our must have foods. These simple, fresh, farm-grown ingredients are just waiting to be turned into fabulous dishes like quiche!
This Ham, Spinach & Mushroom Quiche can easily be adapted to your favorite flavors and what you have in your refrigerator and freezer. It is simple to make and I know it will be a huge hit at your next gathering.
