I’ll admit it. Sometimes I can be rather lazy. I don’t always feel like making breakfast in the morning. And on the days I have to work, sometimes I don’t have time to make breakfast. When that happens, I usually end up stopping somewhere and buying something for breakfast. There’s a Panera Bread next to my job. The missing persons search can be called off. She’s at Panera Bread. Ha, I even go there for lunch sometimes.  I’m surprised they don’t know me by name yet. Or maybe they do. At least they do when they swipe my little Panera card.

I found the remedy to not having time to make breakfast in the morning. Make it ahead of time! Simple recipes like this Sausage Egg and Cheese Quiche Tart, this Breakfast Egg Bake Casserole and this Tomato, Bacon and Spinach Quiche have come to the rescue many times.

Hey so what did you do this past weekend? I enjoyed not having to do any school work. The semester is over and I am free at last…free from school work until January! I didn’t really do anything productive this weekend, minus putting a few bookcase shelves together that I bought at Target. I put two in our bedroom as bedside tables and one in my living room to fill in some empty space. They look pretty nice. Our little house is coming together. Well, it isn’t that small but it isn’t huge either. OH. I also picked up some paint samples because I think we are going to paint the walls soon. I am sick of off white. I’m thinking a light tan will work perfect in our house!

  3. Wow, this tart looks amazing Julie! Love that you can make this ahead and it sounds amazing with all the egg and cheese :) Yay for school being over this semester and hope you enjoy the rest of the week and time off :)

  4. Love this tart! This would make the perfect Christmas breakfast. Thanks for sharing, Julie!

  5. Great looking tart! I’m looking for a new brunch recipe for Christmas… pinning!

  6. Make ahead breakfast are great this time of the year. Especially when it comes to quiche ;–) This one looks amazing and I wish it was my breakfast tomorrow ;)

  7. Julie I am obsessed with quiches right now! So 70’s. I just made a spinach and smoked apple wood bacon one that is my new favorite. I’m making mini crab quiches this weekend for appetizers that I think will rock my world.

  8. Little home improvement work always brightens up the house, even just simple changes like changing the faucet fixtures really makes a difference. I’m glad to hear you have a break from school so you don’t have to deal with schoolwork. This quiche looks delicious! I always prefer the combo sausage and eggs instead of bacon and eggs so this tart totally speaks to me. :D Have a great rest of the week Julie.

  9. Yum Julie your quiche looks amazing! I love that you used sausage I always forget about it when it comes to breakfast, can’t wait to try this recipe soon.

  10. I love Panera! Thank goodness I have to drive 15 minutes to get to it.
    I’m loving this quiche. It look so so yummy and I wish I had it for lunch right now. :)

  11. so, to make it ahead of time you just prepare it, and stick it in the fridge, then bake in the morning? and do you have to bake the pie crust at all before you add the egg mixture? sorry, I’ve never made one of these before, but it looks amazing!!!

    • Hi Drea!
      When I say make ahead, I mean make the whole thing! Say you want to have it for breakfast in the morning but don’t want to make it in the morning. Make it the night before, refrigerate it and then just heat it up the next morning! I just pop a slice in the microwave and heat it for about a minute.

      Let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  13. The quiche sure looks very good.
    I am a big breakfast fan but just keep it quite simple though. This might work so well for a holiday breakfast.
    Looks so good.

    • Thank you so much, Lisa! Ha, you know, I got those samples and have held two up to the wall. I have done nothing else to start the painting process. Painting walls does scare me a little. I know, it’s a wall. It’s easy. But I’m so afraid I am going to somehow get paint on the roof. Or the floor. Or somewhere else it shouldn’t be! :)
