Quiche was delicious

Easy to make and tastes great. Used a cookie sheet to catch any spills while baking. Will make it more often.

So light and fluffy!

by B. Buster , GREENSBORO, NC on Nov. 2006

I used egg substitute light sour cream, and extra cheese (reduced fat) in mine, and everyone gave rave reviews over how light and fluffy this quiche came out. They loved the texture and could not believe I changed to healthier ingredients and had such dynamic results. Instead of making all the quiches the same (you only use part of a can of milk), I changed the seasonings and toppings to toss it up a bit. Italian seasonings with pepperchinis, pepperoni, and artichokes. Greek with a Greek seasoning, olives, spinach, and a sprinkle of feta just as it was about to crust. And the basic onion, ham, mushroom, bacon, etc. This recipe has so many options. I can't wait to make more! Made a half dozen of these this week alone!!! Thanks!

This is an easy quiche type meal

We like this meal for the whole family. It is easy to make, and even the men folk like it. It is hearty with bread and veggies on the side.

Thank you, thank you for this wonderful recipe. I have a very Italian Doctor that doesn't find many Italian foods in the South (authentic) tasting any way. I took this when I went for a visit and he loved it. I really appreciate the sharing of this recipe! And REAL men do eat quiche!

Great Starter Quiche

This was the first quiche I've tried to make, substituted low-fat ingredients for a little healthier feel. My family loved the different flavors. Definitely a keeper.
