I found a handwritten recipe, in my father's recipe box, that I had never had before. It sounded so good and I had all of the ingredients, so I decided to give it a try. Well, sometimes I just can't resist tweaking a perfectly good recipe. This is the result. It's similar to a crustless quiche and is absolutely delicious!
