Since this is my weekend off from work, its another Brunch Sunday with the family. Barry and I woke up and headed over to my moms house.
I had planned on making Hungry-Girl’s Crustless Pumpkin Quiche Supreme. I though about it, and realized I needed to make two pans. So rather than two of the same, I played around in the kitchen to create a Sweet Pumpkin Quiche to match HG’s savory one!
Sweet Pumpkin Quiche
makes 8 slices
- 4 Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cream Cheese wedges, room temperature
- 1/8 tsp ground ginger
- 1 1/2 tsp Splenda brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 Splenda packets
- 1 15oz can pure pumpkin
- 1/2 cup frozen whole cranberries
- 1 Tbsp chopped pecans
- 1 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
- 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar free pancake syrup
Preheat the oven to 350 F. In the meantime, break up the cream cheese wedges and use the back of a spoon to smooth it out. Add the Splendas, spices, and vanilla. Once combined, mix in the pumpkin. Fold in the cranberries, then mix in the eggs.
Spray a 9-in pie pan with non stick cooking spray. Pour the pumpkin mixture in the pie pan and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, and evenly coat the top with syrup. Place back in the oven and continue to bake for another 30 minutes. Move the pan to the broiler and broil for about 10 minutes, until the top begins to brown and caramelize. Remove from the oven and allow the quiche to sit for a few minutes before slicing into it.
It was like breakfast pumpkin pie!!!
MMM Savory and Sweet!
I put syrup out on the table, but I don’t think it needed a darn thing! I served breakfast up with some breakfast potatoes with garlic, onions, peppers, and spices (sort of like a Potatoes O’Brien).
Brunch was a hot according to my panel! I guess its time to formally introduce you to the panel:
My dad, Tom, Frank, my step-dad, Dom, one of my little brothers, and Barry, my boo 🙂
They all have different taste preferences, except my dad and Barry… they put hot sauce on everything!
The Sunday got even better, when Barry joined dad and I for a post-brunch catch! Luckily, I had an extra glove!
The day was a typical Sunday. Barry and I watched a movie. Since the weather was chilly, Barry and I were in the mood for chili! While he ran to the closest Wendy’s for chili, while I browned up some 97% fat free hot dogs, and onions. I snuck a soy dog on Barry’s plate and he really enjoyed it!
The evening was finished up with some job hunting, hot mocha, gingersnaps, and the Eagles/Raiders game!
I love Sundays!
