“YUMMY! I used fresh garden tomatoes in place of the red pepper and all 8 eggs instead of 4 eggs and 4 egg whites. I love the flavor mixtures of potatoes with the zucchini and ham. This makes a beautiful quiche-like dish. I've never tried broiling to set the eggs until today, but I'm sold. Absolutely gorgeous and delicious. Recipe courtesy of Reader's Digest Down Home Cooking, 1994.”
