Seafood Quiche

Quiche is like pie. Only it’s not.


Recently, I’ve taken a trip up to Rochester and Syracuse, New York for a college visit to Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). There, I met and stayed with my Dad’s cousin for the first time. For breakfast one day, she made seafood quiche! It was delicious! The recipe can be found on the All Recipes website.
