Quiche works very well. Add seasonings of your family's choice for more variety. Use ham, bacon, or whatever protein. This quiche needs flavor boosters, so use your spice cabinet. Easily make this a Tex-Mex dish with diced green chiles and a touch of cumin. You could also add crumbled freshly cooked bacon to add more flavor. I served this with sliced avocado and tomatoes for a perfect light dinner.

This was a great recipe for using up some things I had, (chicken, spinach, eggs). I made it without the crust to save some carbs. Just mixed it all together and poured it all in my Pyrex pie plate sprayed with cooking spray. I added one additional egg and a mixture of cheeses and it turned out great! Read More

I used sour cream instead of mayonnaise as I thought I didn't have yogurt (which I always use in place of mayonnaise) and used white fish instead of chicken just for the heck of it and I liked the end result. A simple but tasty weeknight dinner. Read More

I tried this recipe for the first time. Substituted sour cream for the mayonnaise added a little extra sharp cheddar cheese and sauteed the sweet onions in about a teaspoon of bacon drippings before adding to the chicken/spinach mixture. I used the advised amount of salt and pepper but substituted approx 1/4 tsp each of McCormick's Roasted Garlic & Herb Seasoning and 1/4 tsp of their Vegetable Seasoning Blend. It filled up a deep dish pie crust to the brim and took 55 minutes to cook instead of 35 to 40 but it was delicious. The flavor was perfect not too salty. My husband said he doesn't like spinach but he loved this quiche. Read More

I discovered I was out of onions part way through the recipe so I added a can of green chiles and a dash of cumin and omitted the herbs. My picky teenage daughter had two pieces for dinner, one for a snack and the last piece for breakfast. I used chicken left over from a rotisserie chicken. Next time I will add some salsa on top.

This recipe was great! I replaced the mayo with sour cream and I sautéed the onion and then added the chicken to cook/heat and then I cooked down the spinach and added the cheese at the end. I seasoned it with onion and garlic powder and salt and pepper then I added it to the pie crust and cheese. It really turned out well. My family loved it and I will be making it again:) Read More

This was delicious!! I'll make it again. I too saluted onion garlic and spinach before putting into the crust. This made a 9 inch deep dish crust perfectly-no overflow. Read More

Made this as a breakfast quiche, so I substituted hot seasoned sausage for the chicken and used cayenne pepper! To up the heat factor, also substituted queso cheese dip for the mayo! Read More

My husband loved it! I didn't have any sweet onion so I substituted purple onion. Mayo felt a bit heavy so I'd like to substitute the Mayo for Greek yogurt next time (for the healthy perspective). Overall this quiche reminded my husband of those winter days back home when his mom used to cook quiches.:) When I see my husband smile I'm one happy wife. Therefore this recipe is definitely a 5! Mouth-watering moist and delicious! Read More
