What’s For Dinner: 45 Minute Main Dishes~ Tomato Basil Garden Quiche

Easy enough meal for the family that can use leftover items from the fridge or fresh veggies from the garden to transform this meal into a tasty dish.

There are so many different ingredients to add to a quiche that makes me love them so much. Not to mention the fact that we are overwhelmed with fresh farm eggs from our chickens. You all know we love to serve breakfast for dinner. It’s not only a very budget family meal, it’s a very satisfying meal that’s quick and easy to throw all the ingredients together so you can spend more time with your family.

I have to admit, this was my first time making quiche with tortillas as a base. When I wrote out the meal plan, my intentions were to add some type of meat to the quiche like ham, but when I looked in my fridge, I had so many fresh veggies I omitted the ham and it paid off. We all enjoyed it and had some for breakfast the next morning.
