This recipe came to mind one lazy Saturday when I didn’t know what to cook for lunch. There was a packet of bacon in the fridge and plenty of butternuts. I decided to make a quiche with onions, mushrooms, and bacon and added butternut because I love it so much. It is an easy recipe – you are welcome to make a crust for the quiche – I was just looking for something very quick.
