Springtime Quiche

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by BarbryT

From the Gainesville Sun, sometime in the last 10 years. The active prep time is assuming you have the prepared filling ingredients ready and you are using a prepared crust. Add up to half an hour if these assumptions are not the case.

I gave this a 3 because everyone had a different thought about it. It was very cheesy ;-) Made for the AUS/NZ Recipe swap #21 October 2008. Thanks for a great quiche recipe.
