This is another delicious recipe my old Amish neighbor shared with me... It's on the lines of a Quiche ~ I tweaked it to my families liking...I like the recipe, as you can change out cheese and even the meat if you prefer...I've used thick cut bacon and that's delicious as well...I hope you'll try it sometime...Yum!
