The quiche turned out well although I omitted the red pepper and it required more baking time than stated. Everyone loved it! Would definitely make again. Read More

I subbed out the onion and peppers for green chilies since that is what I had on hand. I need to try it as written as well. Read More

GREAT RECIPE!!! I accidentally left out the red pepper and liked it much better than with the pepper in it. I also subsituted sherry for the wine. I make a crustless version by using swiss cheese slices as the "crust" instead of putting shredded swiss on top. It is really good! Read More

Delicious. I subbed sherry - didn't have an open bottle of white handy - and it came out great. I used baby Swiss for a milder flavor. I A little more work than "Crab Quiche I" also from this site but worth it. Read More

I am never sure whether I should review a recipe when I have not followed it exactly but hopefully my changes were not major. I left out the wine as I had none open. I used a combination of mozarella and cheddar as that is what I had. I added mushrooms because I had some. It was tasty and delicious. Read More

This quiche is delicious! I am not a seasoned cook so this was my first quiche and I was very pleasantly suprised. I added green peppers baby shrimp and used a mexican blend cheese rather than the swiss. It was fabulous!! Wish me luck on my journey to becoming a good cook!! Read More

I made it for my mom's birthday. It had a light texture but a rich taste. I made my own crust. I used the canned premium lump crabmeat (about 4 instead of 20). I would use a little more red pepper next time. Read More

Very good. Everyone in my house liked it. I used "lump" crab meat. It's costly but makes a big difference. Read More

I thought this was wonderful. I did not use a crust for this and I also used some Gruyere cheese instead of regular swiss. It was delicious! Read More
