With spring in the air the chickens are a-layin’.

I was inspired to try a quiche that married the plethora of eggs we currently have and a mountain of vegetables for a good dose of nutrients in the morning. It turned out divine and has been a quick breakfast that everyone has enjoyed. Don’t let the fact that the spinach turned the eggs green keep you away. This recipe is a keeper!
