This came to me via my sister-in-law. Great for using up bits and pieces of vegetables and very tasty. Quick, too since you don't have to make a crust first!

I made this for weekend brunch and it was really good! I don't make very good crust, so this was right up my alley. I didn't have any bacon on hand, so I used diced ham instead (about 1 cup). Even the kids ate it! I like the ham flavor, but DH says to try the bacon next time for a stronger smokey flavor. I'll be making this again.
This is a wonderful and easy to make quiche! I added shaved carrots to the other veggies and it is soooooooooo good!! Good even cold!
