    I made the quiche today. It was amazing. For a verition in one of them (I doubled the recipe and made two) I filled the dish with half the vegge mix then I sliced one tomato laid it ontop and cover the tomato with the rest of the veggie mix. Came out yum. Thanks. 👍


  3. I love the idea of making 2 at once so you can have another meal with hardly any ore work! And the ‘secret’ tomato filling sound so good – I’ll do that next time I make it.
