Summer Squash Quiche With Thyme

Summer is a time of bounty for those who grow vegetables. Even if you don’t grow your own, the fresh veggies are filling the supermarkets.  One of my favorite veggies is summer squash. Yellow, green, or white, I am a fan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s recipe is Summer Squash Quiche.  I’m using yellow squash and mozzarella but it’s really good with zucchini too.  I used a 10 inch tart pan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a perfect recipe for a luncheon, birthday party, or a buffet table.
