I have a borderline obsession with brunch. It’s my favorite meal and brunch food is one of my favorite types of food to prepare. I think brunch entertaining is the best kind of entertaining. You get to serve pretty, bubbly cocktails like mimosas and bellinis and it’s totally acceptable to serve half of the meal with store-bought items like croissants and donuts. Quiche is always a great option for the main dish and it can be served at room temperature, so there is no worrying about timing the meal perfectly to serve hot out of the oven. Less stress and more time for sipping mimosas and enjoying your guests.
I’ve made a ton of different quiche recipes over the past few years and this one is my favorite. It is creamy and bold. I mean…some of the key ingredients are blue cheese, cream and cream cheese. It’s as good as it sounds. But probably not good for you. Did I mention I ate it with a chocolate donut?

1 refrigerated pie crust
Please note, you will have extra filling if you use mini tart pans instead of a pie pan. You can either reduce some of the milk and cream and eliminate one of the eggs so that you have less liquid or pour the additional liquid into ramekins and bake without the crust. Either option is great.
