Summer Squash Quiche

We have had a wonderful squash harvest this year and it has been so much fun to have all the fresh veggies for all our meals. This morning I am preparing a Summer Squash Quiche for brunch. It is going to be so good!

  2. That looks so good! I love quiche, but I haven't made it in years. Maybe because of hubby.
    I'll have to buy the squash. I tried to grow it this year, but all my plants died. I haven't figured out why.

  28. This looks so very good. Did you use fresh herbs? I didn't see that as I was reading but could have passed over it. I will make this probably over the weekend. We enjoy a Quiche often in the evening for dinner pared with a small salad.

    I posted for Foodie Friday an unusual Squash Casserole. You might like to take a look at it since you seem to have lots of home grown squash.

  29. Hi Carolyn,
    I did use fresh herbs for the Quiche, just because I have them in my herb garden. You could use dried if fresh are not available. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week end!

  30. Thanks Helen, I do have an herb garden and knew it would make a difference in measurements if it was fresh or dried. I figured it probably was fresh. This is definitely on my weekend menu plan.
