Vegetable Ham Quiche
This quiche is an easy egg dish filled with zucchini, bell pepper, ham and cheese. With our garden produce, it's even more economical. It's pretty enough to serve to company, too.—Betty Albee, Buhl, Idaho

This was delicious. I made it with the homemade sausage on the same page.

This was really good. I used asparagus instead of zucchini because my store was out. Reheats well also.
