Tomato, Caramelized Onion and Fresh White Corn Quiche

Before the fresh ears of corn and farmer's market tomatoes completely leave the shelves, I thought I would make one last summer dish. I'm usually not a huge fan of quiche but for some reason, I think largely due to this list of ingredients,  I decided to give it a go and see if this quiche was any good. Well, it was good alright. In fact, it was so good that even the hubs was on board. This is chocked full of fresh veggies, egg, cheese and a delish buttery, flaky, pie crust. What's not to love?
