seasonal quiche

I am drawing a blank-

what seasonal goods can I use in a quiche?

    For inspiration, your local farmer's market would be a good start for what's fresh and seasonal.

    What sounds good to me: quiche of swiss chard, caramelized red onions, and gruyere cheese (don't forget to add a pinch of nutmeg!!). If it's a main course, then add some chopped bacon...mmmm...

      not a quiche, per se, but make a tortilla espanola (basically a potato fritatta), except with sliced turnips or rutabaga, and a little gouda and thyme.

        Cranberry sweet potato quiche. I love this recipe--it's great warm, cold or room temperature and you can eat it for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dessert.

          caramalized onions and/or leaks and gently steamed or roasted chunks of butternut squash. This is great with a dash or two of freshly ground nutmeg and cinnamin.

            Pears, blue cheese and walnuts.

              A broccoli quiche with onions or leeks and roasted red, orange or yellow peppers would be my choice for this time of year.
