I thought this recipe would be bland so I played with it a little. I substituted leeks for onion (which I just happened to have leftover from another dish), added some bacon (again leftover), nutmeg (traditional for quiche), garlic and cayenne to the mix and it turned out fantastic! Oh I also topped the quiche with some thinly sliced tomato before baking. Read More

Followed recipe exactly very easy and quick quiche. The finished quiche is basic bland and rather dense. Good quick recipe but not something I will be making again. Read More

This was a very good, very basic, very quick quiche that could be easily customized. I pretty made as is except I used half & half instead of cream, and on the recommendation of another member I added another egg. I forgot to get swiss at the store so I used 1/4 c. cheddar & 1/4 c. parmesan. NOTE: If you are using a deep dish pie crust this quiche will not be enough to fill the crust. Read More

Simple and delicious. The first time I made it I thought it was a little dense so the next time I put in 1/2 tsp baking powder and it came out beautifully. Vidalia onions were perfect and herbs de Province made it even better. Read More

I wasn't expecting much from this recipe but I happened to have most of the ingredients on hand and wanted to use them up. I was pleasantly surprised this turned out fantastic! Based on the other reviews I did use the equivalent of 4 eggs (actually 1 cup of Better N Eggs to lower the fat content) and 3/4 cup reduced fat Swiss cheese. I also cooked 5 strips of Morningstar 'fakin' bacon' and crumbled that up and sprinkled it on top of the onions which I layered in a whole wheat frozen pie crust (pre-baked for 10 minutes at 450 since I like a crisp crust). Then I poured the egg and cheese mixture over the onions and 'bacon' and baked the whole thing until the top was slightly browned. It turned out delicious such a versatile recipe. You could add almost any kind of meat or even use fake meat as I did. I do think it wouldn't be nearly as good with just the onions and cheese but would be more like an omelette in a crust. The savoriness of the 'bacon' really made this special. And it's so easy I always thought quiche was difficult but I whipped this up in just a few minutes! Definitely a keeper. Read More

I never liked quiche till I tried this one. You can make it as is or any any kind of veggies you like to it and it comes out great! Just remember to pre-cook you pie shell for 10 minutes if you want a crispy crust. Read More

Plain old onion quiche. Maybe this would be a a 5-star recipe if I ate it with fresh strawberries payaya or mango. I didn't use Vidalia onions; in season that might have been a treat. I'll make it again if I want to use up onions and eggs. Read More

This recipe is great. Everyone who tried it loved it. I made it twice and I think you need 4 eggs. I guess it depends on the pie crust you use though. I also used 1/2 cup of cheese. Definitely a keeper! Read More

This turned out fantastic! I used the No-Roll Pie Crust I recipe and was super impressed with both. Minor changes: I added a clove of garlic when cooking the onions (didn't need a Tbs of butter to saute them just a small amount of non-fat cooking spray). Also added a small amount of chopped cilantro to the eggs. Lastly I used Muenster cheese instead of Swiss and it was y-u-m-m-y! Read More

Never made a quiche before, but this one turned out great. It's so quick and easy that I'm sure I'll be making it again soon. You'll want to add some salt, pepper or other seasoning to the egg mixture to bring out the flavor. I made a few additions and substitutions based on what I had on hand. This recipe lends itself to that. Instead of heavy cream, I used some canned evaporated milk, and added a fourth egg as others have suggested. To season, I mixed in a tablespoon of onion soup mix and some black pepper in with the eggs. I used a blend of cheddar and monterey jack cheese since I didn't have any swiss. The texture was spot on, and it received a thumbs up from my husband. Read More
