  • Bake crust in preheated oven until golden, about 10 minutes.

This is delicious, we really enjoyed this for dinner. I chose to leave out the ham also. I had a problem with the baking time and directions. I followed as written, but the center of the quiche was completely raw, and looked way too brown. I had to bake it 10 minutes more. I recommend just baking this for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees and just skip the broiler step. If you do want it brown, broil for a minute at the very end, be sure to take it out of the oven immediately. Thanks for sharing :) Read More

I found directions for this recipe not clear. "Turn oven to Broil and cook..." Does that mean you put the dish under the broiler? Since "broil" was mentioned I figured that is what it meant. I did that and the to of crust became black. Why not just say to "turn heat up to broil but leave dish in place in oven" if that is what is meant? My guys said "too much spinach". Read More

A very tasty recipe. I did have trouble with the crescent roll dough; it kept sliding down the side of the pan when I was baking it. Perhaps I overworked the dough when prepping it for the dish as it was quite oily. Next time I will use a traditional pie crust or simply make it without the crust. Read More

This is an excellent recipe! I don't eat meat so instead sauteed mushrooms broccoli and spinach. I did not do the broil step just baked in the oven for about 35 minutes. It was delicious!!! Read More

Holy Cow this recipe was the best ever. Everyone at the party thoroughly enjoyed it. Cook time needs to be longer than 15 minutes. I used a relatively deep dish and it took nearly 40 minutes before the middle was done. To the reviewer whose pie crust kept slipping...did you bake it first like the recipe called for? I didn't have that problem at all. I added some mushrooms in with the red peppers and smashed down the pie crust after it had baked (it fluffed up a bit). Huge hit!!! 6 people are asking for the recipe. Glad to pass it on. Thanks so much. I will use this recipe countless times. Read More
