Over 35 years ago, a PTA member posted this recipe in a group cookbook. I have made it many, many times and we just love it since it is not the typical quiche. The cheddar in this recipes tastes so wonderful and as I type this, I think I may just have to have this for dinner this week with a nice salad on the side.
