Apple Cheddar Quiche

I found this recipe online somewhere years ago and I cannot remember where.  I like to serve this with a nice salad and some crusty bread.  We made two of these today to use up some nice fresh eggs that a friend gave me.  We are freezing them for future use.

Update:  We have been using this basic recipe with a new variation.  Instead of the cinnamon sugar apples and cheddar, I have been using sauteed onions, cooked crumbled bacon, wilted baby spinach and shredded swiss cheese.  Amounts vary depending on what I have on hand I  We LOVE the new variation and it also freezes really well  We have been stocking the freezer with these for easy weeknight meals.

2 tbsp butter

3 apples, peeled and sliced
