Sausage Garden Quiche

 Sausage Garden Quiche
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.

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
