This quiche recipe is very tasty. For the crust you can use a store bought pie crust, or you can check out another recipe of mine (Easy Cheesy Pie Crust ), that is very simple, uses a store bought crust, but with a few extra ingredients you end up enhancing the final product. For the quiche if by any chance you are unable to find fontina cheese, monterey jack makes a good substitute.
