Bacon Vegetable Quiche

 Bacon Vegetable Quiche
This recipe is so versatile! You can use Vidalia onions, green onions or leeks. Asparagus can take the place of broccoli, and you can use whatever fresh herbs or cheese you have on hand. I especially like it in spring, when I'm overwhelmed with an abundance of fresh greens. —Shannon Koene, Blacksburg, Virginia
