Quiche is such a versatile food.  It’s great for breakfast, brunch or dinner.  And it is the perfect food to use up left-overs.  Some extra veggies on hand that need to be used?  A little meat left over?   Grate a bit too much cheese and not sure what to do with it?  Quiche is the answer, my friend! Don’t tie yourself down to one quiche recipe.  This recipe takes into account that your taste, as well as your ingredients on hand, change.
