You can substitute any shredded cheese to your liking. For a heartier quiche, substitute one cup of the zucchini for one cup of shredded potato (squeeze out excess water.)

This recipe was easy, and very tasty. Loved the texture. I put it in an 11 x 7 pan and it took about 40 minutes and it was well browned and puffy. The only thing I changed was that I put pre-cooked bacon pieces on the top before baking. Read More

well I sure made a mistake.. thought I could use this recipe as a baseline and add my own things like ham instead of zuchinni etc.. well I ended up with a gaint ham and cheese biscuit.. not quiche texture at all. On the upside though my five year old loved it and didn't detect the minced onion at all. Read More

My family loved this one even the grand kids! I sliced fresh garden tomatoes on top and went a little heavier with the cheddar and Parmesan. It's a great recipe for a Sunday morning - so easy to put together. It' s also good reheated for lunch. Read More

Excellent excellent excellent!! My very picky teens (the 4 of them) gobbled this up so fast that I am glad that I made two extra pie shells because this is a fantastic meal that everyone LOVED. I will certainly put this in our family favorites list of regular recipes to be served. I love how I was able to make this in the early morning and then all day they were "in it" Everyone prefered it cold too...... Thanks again for the great recipes! Read More

years ago I made same quiche. don't use the breadcrumbs and used Lucatel Cheese it was always great. Now since I live in Ohio and have trouble finding Lucatel I use grated Romano instead and it is just as tasty. I love it with fresh tomatoes from the garden and corn on the cob. I also don't shred the zucchini I slice thin or chop. Very nice taste Read More

I followed the recipe 100%. If I was making bread I would think this recipe as great 5 star even. This was my first quiche and I was expecting more of an eggy dish. I saw another recipe on this website similar to this except they said add 2 cups milk. I don't know if that will turn out bread like too, but I'll give it a go next. I'll keep this recipe for a savory bread. Read More

Good base recipe especially if you are gluten free....I used gluten free bisqick in this recipe and eggs fresh from the coup. I also added 1/2 red bell pepper diced extra cheese and 2 extra eggs as they were fresh and not all uniformly sized so I added to the consistancy I thought was right. No soupy but moist almost like a cake/brownie batter.i omited parsley and bread crumbs as I didnt have parsley and I didnt want to make my own gluten free bread crumbs. Not bad next time I will sautee the onions and garlic to bring out more flavor. Read More
