Black and Gold Fusion Quiche

This quiche is a blend of common Thanksgiving table leftover ingredients united in a practical way to repurpose Thanksgiving food. We developed this recipe to illustrate the spirit of the Vandal community. Although we may be very different, together we create something better.
