To Die For Quiche

Laura Shinn


A very versatile quiche, very hearty. Everyone who has had it begs for the recipe. It is a little time consuming, but worth it. Feel free to substitute any of the meats, cheeses, and veggies to what your family likes or what ingredients you have on hand

I like to bake the unfilled pie crusts for about 7 minutes to keep the crust from getting soggy
