Doubled this recipe and was a hit! Cut oregano and salt in half and was wonderfully flavorful. Subbed Gouda for Cheddar.Made one with a crust and one without- both good! I felt like they were very 'small servings' both my quiches were only about.75" deep (they puffed up in oven then settled much thinner) so next time will triple recipe for two pies. Read More

Made this for the RECIPE GROUP this week. I doubled the broccoli, milk,and mustard and used 7 eggs. Discovered I was out of oregano so used Italian seasoning in its place and omitted the thyme as it is in the Italian seasoning. Added a little chopped onion and minced garlic. Left the cheese amounts the same. It took almost all the mixture to fill the 9" deep pie crust so doubling is definitely necessary. Made a mini crustless quiche with the leftover. The quiche was good but not what you would say mmmm this is really good. Unless I see some new reviews with good suggestions on improving the taste I probably would not make this again. Read More

Made this last night for the first time and everyone loved it! I did not use deep dish. I bought the regular refrigerator pie crust. Since there were two pie crust in the box I went ahead and doubled recipe. If you do not double the recipe you will have the perfect amount for one regular pie crust. I followed the ingredients exactly as given except I did not have oregano or thyme. I used italian seasoning instead. The quiche came out perfect and the taste was exactly what we were hoping for!

I brought this to a "ladies club meeting"; it received HIGH praise! Yay! (In fact: if there was a 6 star rating...I'd rank it 6 stars!) I made it as listed except: 6 eggs vs 4, therefore I used 3/4 cup milk vs 1/2 cup. I also omitted the thyme, since I didn't have any. Also- I didn't prick the crust nor oil it. I used pie weights when I baked the crust and I sprayed the quiche pan with Pam beforehand. I also cut 4 grape tomatoes and removed the seeds and interior. (This was primarily done for color and decoration) All else was as written in the original recipe. It was FANTASTIC! Thanks JJ's mom!!!! Read More

I love this recipe and have made it many times. I love to make this for guests for breakfast and they rave over it. I followed other reviewers suggestions for changes. The changes make it a five star in my opinion. The changes I made were adding about 2/3 cup or more chopped ham reducing the oregano to 1/2 tsp and I've added gouda instead of cheddar sometimes too. Fresh grated Parmesan cheese is so much better in this recipe also. It won't disappoint. Read More

Did what previous reviewer suggested and cut the oregano in half. I also added about 2/3 cup of leftover ham that I diced into small cubes. Family loved it and requested for me to make it again in the near future. Read More

This recipe has potential but the oregano was WAY overpowering. Next time will cut the oregano in half and maybe add some bacon. Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 10 August 2013 Had this for dinner tonight with ham slices. Everyone really enjoyed this. I prepared in a regular size pie pan rather than a deep dish. I would not have had enough filling for a deep dish. I also used fresh oregano in place of the dried pepper jack in place of the Cheddar and only used tsp. of thyme. It did take longer than 40 minutes to bake. Mine took about 50 minutes. This baked up and set up nicely. The quiche cut and served great too. All in all this is a good quiche and I will make it again next time I think I will add some diced onions and fresh tomatoes to the broccoli mixture. Read More
