Quiche is a great way to serve something elegant that costs very little and is easy to prepare. I experiment with fillings. This is one experiment that worked.

I was a little worried the Italian seasoning was going to be overpowering. I'm so glad I was wrong. This is one yummy quiche! It's simple to throw together and will be a great holiday breakfast or brunch. So good! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
