My mom loves quiche, so for Mother's Day one year I created my own quiche recipe for her. I've been making it ever since. All it takes is a trip to the farmers market. If you have the ingredients, make the crust from scratch. —Yanique Douglas, Waynesboro, Pennsylvania

"I thought this dish had great flavor. I made my without a crust though as I have celiac and didn't feel like making my own crust tonight. Even without the crust, this dish held together surprisingly well."
