Eggplant Quiche - Dee Dee's

Not a fan of eggplant? Neither was I until a good friend and co-worker shared this recipe with me about 35 years ago.

This quiche is a savory summer keeper to say the least.

This makes two quiche. Put one in the oven today and one in the freezer for later.

This is one of those recipes I don't want to ever lose.

Enjoy!
