Colour makes the world better

A lovely Sunday brunch with a lovely bunch of eggs. And a lovely bunch of friends. Proof that good friends come in all colours. :)

Blue - Ameracaunas. Chocolate reddish brown - French black copper Marans. Brown - Euskal Oiloa and Hungarian Yellows. White - Leghorns and Silver Grey Dorkings. Personally, I detect a bit of pink in there too. And a lovely quiche it was!

Parmesan Crust Quiche
A few slices of bacon, diced
A bit of chopped onion
A couple of chopped green onion, white and green part
8 eggs
1/2 cup half and half cream
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp butter
3-4 tbsp parmesan cheese
2 cups Gruyere cheese

Heat the bacon in a skillet on low heat until soft. Add the onions and cook through. Whip together eggs and cream. Season with salt and pepper.

Rub butter inside a pie plate. Press parmesan cheese into the butter. Spread the bacon onion mixture on the parmesan cheese. Top with Gruyere cheese. Pour on the eggs. Bake 375F for 30-35 minutes, until the centre is set.
