Buttery quiches filled with fresh vegetables and a blend of eggs and cheese are perfect for chilly fall days. And Pam Pressly’s version is no exception. The Beachwood, Ohio reader relies on eggs, butter and Monterrey Jack cheese to give the dish rich flavor and a light texture.

"This review is somewhat mixed. The texture of this quiche was perfect, and it was so simple. However, we thought it was lacking in flavor. Maybe it just needed more salt, but I was thinking pepper jack cheese might kick it up a bit."

A real winner. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
