Where There Is Always Room At The Table For One More!
Sharon Starlings Autumn QuicheHere is my tried and true quiche recipe. It is so easy to make ahead. I make this all the time, I cook the meat, and after it cools I just mix all the ingredients together and put it in the fridge. Then in the morning I pour it into the pi crusts and bake. Or you can bake the nihght before and rewarm that morning-They reheat well too.
