I started making this recipe many years ago when I was a newlywed. And somewhere down the line I lost it and have been trying to recreate it ever since. Well, tonight I came across my mother in laws recipe box and I found it! She loved this quiche and had copied it from my original recipe. My mother and father in law have both since passed away, so I am dedicating this recipe to them. Miss you Bea and Zane...
