Spinach, Tomato, Potato, and CHEESE Quiche!

Let’s be real, I should have listed the ingredients in the title in order of personal significance. Cheese would be first. This quiche is hearty AND (mostly) healthy, so what more can you ask for?! I eat quiche for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s that great. Quiche is also a versatile meal. Got ground turkey? Throw it in… Bell peppers about to go bad? Yep, they can come too. Bacon, shredded chicken, more cheese, garlic, broccoli, sweet peppers, hot peppers, cheese again… Get creative! It’s the “everything quiche”.
