I always get compliments when I serve this quiche to my hungry crew. Our grandchildren especially love it for breakfast. The sweet flavor of the Swiss cheese and squash really comes through.—Mary Detweiler, Middlefield, Ohio


  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup mashed cooked winter squash
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. In a skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Transfer to a greased 9-in. pie plate. Sprinkle with cheese.
  2. In a bowl, whisk milk, squash, eggs, salt, pepper and nutmeg until smooth; pour over cheese.
  3. Bake at 325° for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
