Spring Veggie Quiche

image

Quiche is one of my favorite things! Pair with a big green salad and some fresh fruit, YUM! Quiche is super diverse, you can put almost anything you can think of in it and it works! Today’s quiche is so quick and easy! I used all the fresh veggies I had in the fridge, tossed with a little egg mixture and bake! Remember, anything goes, use your favorite and ENJOY!!

Caramelized Onion & Bacon Quiche

It has been WAY to long since I made quiche. I love it but typically do not think about it unless I am planning brunch. My inspiration came from the bacon leftover from breakfast. This recipe will fill 2 regular size pie shells.

4 eggs

1 1/4 cup half & half

1 onion, sliced & caramelized

5-6 slices of crumbled crisp bacon

1 cup chopped broccoli

1 cup shredded cheese

Caramelize onions in 1 T butter & 1 T olive oil, saute on high for a few mins to get a golden color then add dash of salt and turn to low. After the are softened and looking yummy add 1 tsp balsamic vinegar. I know you are thinking a whole onion is alot but this:
