Prosciutto Parmesan Quiche

a delicious meal at any time of the day

Recipe excerpted from Fast and Easy Five-Ingredient Recipes: A Cookbook for Busy People by Philia Kelnhofer

This light and fluffy quiche makes for a delicious meal at any time of the day (quiche can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner). When I was growing up, quiche was always served on Sundays or when guests came over because it has a superquick prep time and then it could bake in the oven while we were spending time with family and friends.
