anytime quiche

Quiche is something that can be enjoyed any time of day. It makes a good hearty breakfast to start the day with fresh fruit on the side. Of an evening, add a small dinner salad and piece of garlic bread and you have a delicious evening meal. Although most quiches are made with half-n-half which make them richer, I prefer to reduce fat and calories by using skim milk. The quiche will "set" just as well.

    Brown sausage and drain on paper towel. In another skillet fry bacon crisp.

    In sausage skillet, add 1 tablespoon Olive Oil. Saute chopped veggie mix over medium heat until tender. Stir sausage into this and crumble bacon into the mixture as well.
