1/4 Photos of Garden Vegetable Quiche With a Cream Cheese Crust
1 hr 20 mins
This quiche is so full of goodness it can be dinner! Equally good at a brunch. This recipe is fabulous to use up those bits of veggies that I always seem to be accumulating.....anyone else have that problem? The cream cheese crust is a bonus! From Spice and Spirit cookbook. Chill time for pastry isn't included in the prep time, since you can do this while making the rest of the recipe.
