Lea Michele may be a fabulous actress and songbird, but she's no Julia Child. When she appeared on Leno the other night, she confessed a recent attempt to cook for boyfriend Cory Monteith went more than a little awry. Lea told Jay, "I cooked something for my boyfriend the other day, and I don't think he really liked it. I made him a little breakfast, like my version of an Italian croque-madame or something, but I think the eggs were raw and not cooked! It wasn't very good, but he was a very good sport."
Haaa, awww ... Hey, at least she tried, right? And the idea of cooking for Cory a romantic breakfast was super-sweet. Maybe next time, though, she might wanna try something a little simpler and straightforward, like one of these easy, fool-proof breakfasts-in-bed anyone can whip up for their honey on a lazy Sunday ...
Gruyere Cheese Quiche (by baking eggs, you can be extra sure to avoid Lea's mistake!) via The Stir via Real Simple
Heat your oven to 375. Fit the crust into a 9-inch pie plate. Place on a baking sheet.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the parsley.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in the onion mixture and the Gruyere.
Pour the egg mixture into the crust. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, usually about 35 to 40 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes. Drizzle the greens with the remaining tablespoon of oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve with the quiche.

The next step is to prepare the eggs and the ham, simultaneously if possible.
