You can add what you like to this quiche. Experiment with different cheeses, meats and vegetables. Excellent choices are leek and soft goat cheese (chèvre), or swiss and asparagus, or cheddar and ham. Use about 5-8oz of cheese and one cup of other material - vegetables and/or meat.

This recipe was exactly what I was looking for! A good starting point for what I had available. I used some pan fried potatoes and onions, cheddar cheese, a little cottage cheese and some turkey bacon. Came out great! I put foil around the edges of my crust so it wouldn't over bake. I'll be making this again!
