Easy Summer Quiche

Easy Summer Quiche
Summer tomatoes- they are abundant now and I have all kinds of ideas for them. Since I have a lot of eggs and a lot of veggies- a quiche sounds delightful! I love quiche! Yes quiche for breakfast, for lunch, for brunch, for dinner and for a snack.Okay- I am getting carried away since I am the only one in my family that is going for that idea- but hey I can dream right??? I also have Swiss chard that I steamed for last night's dinner. Plus some yummy potatoes that I cubed and baked with olive oil and sea salt. You can use anything that you like for a quiche- experiment- see what combinations you like.

This serves 8-10 small slices, 6-8 large slices.

Perfect for a party- your guests will swoon- I was swooning when it came out of the oven- I love it warm and oozing with cheese.

Serve your quiche with a garden salad for lunch or dinner, fresh fruit for breakfast or brunch.
