I love hosting parties at my house, especially casual brunches. Its always a pleasure to cook for my guests, but sometimes there are too many things that need to be cooked at the same time. It can get a little hectic when you are trying to cook bacon, breakfast sausages, eggs, pancakes, waffles, and trying to entertain your guests all at the same time. Quiche is a lifesaver when it comes to hosting breakfast or brunch. You can make the hash brown crust a few hours in advance and pour the egg mixture about 30 minutes before you plan to serve it. This is my go to recipe when serving brunch because it saves me so much time and headache. And its extremely delicious… anything with bacon is delicious 😉 I use Johnny’s seasoning salt, but if you prefer to use salt and pepper, that works just as good. I usually buy my Johnny’s seasoning at Costco because it doesn’t have MSG.
