Quiche Medium 2

Garden Fresh Quiche with Tomatoes, Chives, and Goat Cheese

This quiche is a perfect go to recipe for a brunch party. The flaky All Butter Pie Crust is just decadent enough to stand up to the acid in the grape tomatoes and the creamy, richness of the goat’s cheese.Garden Fresh Quiche with Tomatoes, Chives, and Goat Cheese
