Being pregnant with baby #2 I have had the hardest time eating eggs! I know they are so good for you, and usually I eat a lot of eggs in my diet. I decided to try and make my Grandma's quiche recipe and see if I would be able to eat (and enjoy) eggs.
So, I whipped up this recipe Saturday morning for myself and my husband, and Oh-my-word was it good. SO so good! Not only did I enjoy it, I had it again later for dinner and then finished the leftovers the next morning. My husband really enjoyed this recipe too- he had several slices! Between the two of us, we quickly ate all of the quiche!
I can't wait to make it again… will probably run to the store and get more ingredients this week! Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
