This is a yummy savory quiche. I definitely don’t make it often enough for how yummy it is! It’s that darn pie crust – they really aren’t difficult to make, but for some reason it’s a big deterent for me. When I’m deciding what to make for dinner, it just seems like a pain to make a pie crust, so I make something different. Anyway, my mother in law came to Michigan after I had my baby in March (yes, both Brittany and I had babies in March!) and she got a pkg of two rolled up refrigerated pie crusts at the grocery store. We used one for this and the other for a pie. Wow. Easy. Really easy. And remarkably good for being so easy. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my homemade pie crust that I’ve always made, but I’ve discovered that there is definitely a time and a place for a storebought pie crust! Anyway, this delicious recipe is from a family friend, Linda Hancey, from the neighborhood we grew up in. It’s fantastic!
