Why I Love This Recipe

I have a friend who is a great cook. He invited me to be the judge of a quiche baking contest once. After he won the contest(with my unbiased judging of course), he handed me the winning quiche to take home. I got hungry on the way home and started eating it with my bare hands while driving(do not try this please). The quiche was so delicious, before I know it, I had eaten almost the entire quiche and ended up with crumbs all over my face, fingers, car seat, jeans and shirt(this probably qualifies as one of my favorite food memories), but it sure was satisfying!

Ever since then, I have been inspired to bake quiche. This is a quiche I made last week on a ski trip to Washington. We had it for breakfast and everyone fought over the left-over as a midnight snack!

This recipe can also be made without the crust.
