I liked this recipe but can't give it 5 stars because of all the changes I made. I made it into a crustless quiche and baked it in a 13x9 glass dish. I used 6 slices of bacon 8 eggs 1-1/2 cups light cream 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. pepper 2 pgk. (10 oz.)fresh baby spinach steamed 2 cups chopped mushrooms sauteed in 2 Tbsp. bacon grease along with 1 cup onions. I used 1/2 pound of swiss cheese which amounts to 2-1/4 cups (no cheddar). I saved 1/4 cup of the cheese to sprinkle on top. Mixed all ingredients together baked at 375 for 35 minutes. I spent 45 minutes on prep time plus the quiche needs to sit for about 10 minutes when it comes out of the oven. I couldn't see how I could mix raw spinach and raw mushrooms with the liquid so cooked them lightly and it worked out great. Sorry for the long review but making these changes is the only way I will use this recipe again. Read More

This recipe is missing a step. You need to cook the spinach, mushrooms and onions BEFORE you mix with other ingredients. Otherwise you end up with a soopy mess. Read More

The flavor was very good. I used packaged bacon bits to make it a little quicker and easier. The quiche was watery when I first cut it and I had to drain off quite a bit of liquid. Also the onion in it was crunchy (undercooked). I think you need to first saute the onions to soften/pre-cook them possibly sauteing them with the mushrooms to exude the excess liquid from them first. Read More

My first quiche, and the best I've ever eaten! I took the reviewer's recommendation to use the leftover bacon grease to satuee, which really brought out good flavor. I didn't have a ready-made pie crust, so I made one myself, out of the 'Danish Pastry Apple Bars' recipe. (Just cut the dough ingredients in half, and there's your bottom pie crust! And I took the picture for that recipe there!!) I figured the apple pie crust would be just as delicious as a quiche pie crust, and I couldn't have been more right about that! Turned out FANTASTIC!!

Wonderful recipe! I made this for my friends and I to have after a Girls' Night Out party. All of my friends agreed that it was great. They all wanted the recipe. I used baby portabella mushrooms, and I took others' advice and sauteed the onions and the mushrooms in a bit of the bacon grease before adding them into the egg mixture. Thanks again for the recipe!

This was my first quiche. It came out great. I did however follow the advice of previous reviews and scaled back on the ingredients. (6 servings instead of 8) I used a 9" deep pie dish and it came out perfect no oozing. Also sauted onions & mushrooms in a little bacon grease. Think next time I may add alittle more bacon but overall this is an excellent recipe! Read More

So yummy! I made this for a friend's baby shower brunch. I used tart shells instead and baked them for 20 min. and they came out perfectly. I followed others' advice and sauteed the mushrooms and onions and added 1 clove garlic (minced) and also some garlic salt for added flavour. I didn't have bacon and so used 1 cup of chopped shrimp. Excellent taste! Read More

This quiche was very yummy. I doubled the recipe and slow cooked it at 350 in a 13x9 pan. To remove the water from the mushrooms and soften up the onions I sauteed them a little bit before adding to the eggs. The people at the party couldn't believe that this was my first quiche. I made it with a mashed potato crust (from another recipe here). I will definitely make this one again. Yum Yum.. Read More
