I just made this for breakfast & we devoured it ...my husband had refused to eat it for supper the other day (he threatened to go out to eat if I made it!) so I snuck into the kitchen before he woke up & started this UNBELIEVABLY FAST, easy & so delicious quiche!!! Thank you so much for submitting this, it's absolutely easy & my early teen daughter will be whipping this up for us often!!! *NOTE* glass pie pans take 5-8 minutes longer so don't open the oven door until you've made the adjustment! Otherwise your's will fall, as mine did --but its going to still be great! Read More

This tasted okay. I thought it was kind of salty and a little oniony. I liked the fact that it didn't have a crust which cut back the saturated fat and calories in a normal quiche. But I think I would have to work with it to get the right combination of ingredients and definitely cut back on the salt as there is enough in the cheese and meat. Made a good breakfast change either way. Read More

I have made this quiche many times. My recipe calls for a 1/2 cup of complete pancake mix instead of flour. Quick and very good! Read More

I loved this easy recipe. I added a few things to it as I always do. I chopped (in a food processor) some fresh broccoli and an onion. I sauted them in a pan with a SMALL amount of the bacon grease, just till onions were soft. I used less bacon and cooked on Forman grill so grease dripped off bacon. I added chopped ham and a bit of parmesean. I also used mozerella. I used whole wheat flour but you could not tell in the final product. I did have to cook it longer but did not have to broil. Crispy skin was already on the top. Easiest quiche I have ever made. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was great to whip up at the last minute using items I had on hand. Delicious, and impressive because it seemed much harder to make than it really was. For more servings, I increased the ingredients by half, used a 9X13 baking dish, and cooked for an extra ten minutes or so. Read More

Holy wow. I may have to go back and change all my other ratings down a level to make room for the comparative awesomeness of this recipe. I don't want anyone to get too excited, but this may be my favorite recipe EVER. I love quiche the way most people love Christmas. However, quiche is unfortunately loaded with fat and calories and all sorts of bad stuff, meaning it's way off my diet. :-/ NOW I CAN EAT QUICHE EVERY DAY, because this recipe, while preserving the general awesomeness of quiche, cuts out the cream AND the butter-filled crust, leaving only diet-worthy deliciousness. I made only two changes; I cut out the two tablespoons of butter, and I like my quiche a little "thick" so I changed one-half cup of milk to plain unsweetened yogurt (I put the yogurt in one cup of milk and mixed well before adding to the flour). This made the texture a little "richer" without adding calories or fat. I really, really love you for this recipe. Really. Read More

This is the first recipe from this site that I had very low expections, and I was wrong!! This was wonderful! My changes: Omitted bacon, added broccoli and mushrooms, sprinkled paprika on top to add to the 'browned' look, which it did beautifully. I love this recipe! Read More

This was pretty good, although next time I will not add the butter...I don't think that it needed the extra fat, as there is already enough in the cheese. I also substituted turkey sausage for the bacon because my husband is muslim and doesn't eat pork. It was really good though and I will make again, adding more veggies next time and maybe trying Cheddar cheese. Read More

It's a keeper! I used some of the reviews and cooked the onions about 2 min before adding to egg mixture. Blender is the way to mix this one. Also baked in my cast iron skillet 35 min it turned out beautiful. No need to broil. Read More
