My vegetarian family really liked this recipe. I did change it a tiny bit: I used 1/2 a yellow onion instead of that canned fried stuff, sautéing it in the olive oil until translucent and then added the chopped asparagus right into the pan. I replaced the milk with soy milk and the half-n-half with a margarine and soy milk combo. Baked it crust-less in a ceramic pie pan, came out perfect in the specified time and temp.. Read More

I thought this was just okay. It didn't have a lot of flavor, despite having a lot of ingredients. The french fried onions were a really nice add, but unfortunately it didn't save the quiche. There's way too much cheese in here as well. I wouldn't make this again. Read More

An outstanding quiche recipe. Used a frozen deep dish crust and had too much mixture for the pan, so recipe could be reduced 1/4, if desired. Added salt and pepper. Read More

Low carb version- omitted crust. Did not miss it at all. Did amply grease the baking dish. Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 04 April 2015 Wow sometimes you just REALLY REALLY like a recipe - and that was the case for me and this quiche! It was very easy to put together and the taste was fantastic. I used the equivalent of 4 egg white and 2 whole eggs and didn't measure the cheeses but I'm sure I didn't use 11 oz. and used 3/4 pound of asparagus. It produced a very full deep dish pie pan. Because my DH thinks there needs to to be meat with a meal I added diced ham to half of the quiche. I enjoyed a piece from the side without the ham. This baked up and set up so nicely that the next time I'm going to make it without the crust. Nice recipe selection this week. I served this with fresh strawberries. Read More

Very very good! Followed the recipe to the letter except I had to use cheddar cheese instead of Swiss because I didn't have it at the time I decided to make it yesterday. This dish goes great with fresh fruit to accompany it especially strawberries! Good job! Read More

I changed it a bit - used only 5 eggs reduced milk to 1/2 cup and half-n-half to about a 1/3 cup. Then I added some crumbled bacon and used a 15 oz can of asparagus spears (drained); putting it in a ready made frozen 10 inch crust. Yum!! Read More
