Just felt like quiche, but had no milk, cream, or anything of that nature... except the Bailey's Mud Slide coffee creamer. I thought "why not". Just barely a hint of sweetness that worked well with the zucchini.

This will be great at your next brunch or even as an entree for supper along with a salad. I really liked the flavors in this quiche. The Bailey's creamer is definitely an odd ingredient, but it added just the right amount of sweetness to make it delicious.
