Recipe by JessAZ
This is an adapted version of my beloved grandma Bee's specialty. It is reminisent of quiche, but with no crust and a tad lighter. At pot luck's it always seems to be the first dish gone and it works wonderfully as lunch the next day with a small salad or any sort of chopped vegetables. The secret is to use good quality cheese in order to really bring out the flavors and it can definetly be prepared earlier in the day or even the night before (but please refridgerate) and baked whenever needed. Hope you enjoy!
