Caramelized Onion, Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Quiche

Caramelized Onion, Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Quiche

Quiche and frittatas are arguably the best breakfast you could possibly meal prep on Sundays. They hold up well throughout the week and still taste awesome when reheated (in the toaster oven if you can). This quiche is lower fat and lower in calories than regular quiche. Another great part about quiche is the different flavor combinations that are made possible!
