This quiche is my favorite! I sometimes omit the sausage and add more garden fresh ingredients. It reheats nicely in the microwave, which I find especially handy after a busy day working as a postmaster in our small town.

"This is an amazing quiche! I use an additional 1/3 cup of swiss cheese along with the cheddar and add diced red peppers, fresh sliced mushrooms, or practically any garden veggie I have on hand. I also use egg substitute instead of the real eggs, turkey sausage links and reduced fat cheeses to lighten it up a bit. It presents beautifully and tastes phenominal!"
