Today is the first day of Brunch Week.......
Each year Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures invites us to join her in sharing recipes that are perfect for hosting a brunch.  Of course, the recipes found here are not only perfect for brunch but can be served anytime of the day as part of a full meal and many of them, like these little quiche, are perfect as appetizers and snacks too.

Let's take a look so you can see what I mean.......

mini quiches

I love serving up quiche.  They are a great way to use up leftovers or those little odds and ends that you find in your refrigerator.  These mini quiches were made with some leftover broccoli that I had but you can just microwave a little broccoli or use part of a package of frozen, thawed broccoli if you don't have leftovers.

I use a crust for my large, full size quiche but when making these baby, bite size goodies, I find it is easiest to go crustless.  This also makes them perfect for any of your family/friends who are gluten intolerant.

Brunch Week is, as the name suggests, a week long event.  I will be back tomorrow and Wednesday with some more fun recipes for you.  On Thursday and Friday you will be able to find the others by searching #BrunchWeek on social media.
