Asparagus and Zucchini Quiche
So it's that time again... time for me to make breakfast for John's coworkers. I have made so many different dishes for them that I am beginning to really get a better handle on their tastes. One thing that always goes over really well is quiche. I personally love that they enjoy quiche because it is just so easy to make! What is simpler than mixing some eggs, cheese, and veggies together and letting them bake away in the oven? Nothing!
This quiche was inspired by the variety of veggies I had in the fridge. I had a beautiful bunch of asparagus that needed to be used as well as a zucchini. I turned to google and found this recipe. It was perfect and easy. According to John it was a big hit at his office- so that makes it even better!
