So its January! That means either starting fresh and eating clean or hunkering down for the winter and enjoying this meat lovers quiche.
Last year my first recipe of the year was healthy. This year, it is all about comfort food. Lots of bacon, sausage, ham, and cheese baked until its perfectly golden on top. If you feel like adding other types of meat, go for it. As for cheese, use whatever you have in the fridge. I have included what I used, but feel free to use your imagination. It will be great either way.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Add the cooked bacon, sausage, ham, onions and cheese into the crust. Pour the egg mixture on top.
Bake for 20-30 minutes until the center is set. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing.
