California Quiche

Serves 4

Pre-heat oven to 325°

1 lb. summer, zucchini, yellow squash, chopped Swiss chard, or mixed squash and greens

½ onion, thinly sliced

4 eggs

1½ to 2 cups grated cheese -- Swiss best, any will do

Salt and pepper to taste

½ tsp. each of dried oregano and basil

  1. Steam squash and onion lightly; do not over-cook.
  2. Meanwhile, beat the eggs and add the grated cheese.
  3. Mash squash (don't puree, as chunks are good) and add to eggs.
  4. Add salt, pepper, oregano, and basil.
  5. Pour into greased baking dish (pie plate works well) and bake covered in 325° oven until set, about 30 to 40 minutes.

Variation:  Add fresh crab, shrimp, or any leftover cut-up fowl.  Swiss chard is pretty because of its red stems.  Adding sweet red pepper strips for color and taste works well.
