Help me make a good veggie torta or quiche

MazDee | Dec 28, 201406:48 PM     9

I'm having a New Year's Day brunch and want to serve a couple of veggie-cheese dishes that can be cut into squares, or maybe baked in muffin cups. I've tasted many good dishes like this, but mine always seem to be so bland! Tonight I made one with spinach, artichoke hearts, sauteed onions, a clove of garlic, some chopped red bell pepper, fresh basil, parmesan and mozzarella cheese, and of course eggs and milk. I put in a bit of breadcrumbs and flour to make it sturdy. Looked great, but still blah! I like the "Impossible Pie" type of tortas, firmer than a quiche. About 40 years ago, I was making a green chile/cheese quiche that was well liked. Maybe I should go back to that! Any help out there for me?
