Now that the Farmer's Markets are in full swing this quiche loaded with veggies is perfect for all your fresh produce finds.

You have got to try this.

This is perfect dish is perfect for breakfast, lunch, brunch or even dinner.

I made it Monday night with all the veggies I had that needed to be used up.

I think the most time consuming part of this recipe, besides it baking for 45 minutes, is chopping the vegetables.

I thought it was super delicious.

I did substitute the colby-monterey cheese for cheddar because that's what I had on hand.
