This resembles a crustless quiche. Try other fresh herb combinations instead of dill, i.e. thyme, tarragon, oregano, etc.

OMG!!! This is soooo good! DH went out tonight and I decided to make this for my dinner, whereas if it was both of us eating it would have had to be lunch/brunch. This is a definite keeper. So easy to make, I used squash purchased at the farmers market today. Realized I was out of butter while making and substituted Earth Balance buttery sticks. Worked fine. LOVED the dill, which I used from my garden. I don't think I'd use another herb. So glad I stumbled upon this in your recipes, Mikekey! Thanks! Made for Veggie Swap July 2013.

I loved this. I had nice yellow squash from my CSA box. I probably used a little more squash than called for but I didn't have to adjust any other of the ingredients. The goat cheese and dill flavors made this incredible and the texture was perfect; not dry and not too moist. Loved this. Thanx for posting it!
