"One of our favorite meals, that is easy to put together at the last minute, is quiche. While we like homemade crust, we keep a few frozen, pre-made ones ready to go in the freezer. Quiche is one of those dishes that can be changed up just by adding different cheeses, spices and veggies. For our family of ten, we make two and serve with a side of salad and fruit. Double recipe for two quiches."
