  1. This was amazing! Based on other reviews I cut the mayo back to 1/3 cup, left the milk at 1/2 cup and added an egg (to total 5). Also added 1/2 tsp of salt to the egg mixture, and layered the spinach as well as some chopped sundried tomatoes with cheddar AND feta cheese. Instead - Read more ...
  2. I loved this recipe! My Husband who turns his nose up at Quiche had 2 Large helpings and then asked when could I make it again. I added mushrooms to the quich at the last minute and more shredded cheese on top. I easily doubled the recipe and froze the extra quiche for lunches at - Read more ...
  3. I've made this a few times now and have tweeked it to perfection. I add a little less mayo and 1 more egg and it comes out perfect everytime!
  4. Super! I used a deep dish crust and added an extra egg. I filled my quiche with every veggie I had in the fridge: onion, red peppers, chopped broccoli, garlic. Saute over medium heat until nearly soft. Instead of frozen spinach, I layered fresh on the bottom of my pie shell, spooned sauteed veggies on - Read more ...
  5. Not impressed. WAY TOO much spinach, it was overpowering! If I make this again (probably won't) I will use 1/2 the spinach.
  6. This recipe was fab-u-lous!! Only changed a few things: used only half of the spinach (that's alot of spinach!!) added a handful of fresh diced tomatoes some diced ham and added salt pepper and garlic salt. Used a deep dish pie plate so it yielded only one pie. Very very tastey. Thanks!!
  7. This was excellent. I added a tiny bit of minced garlic, and a cup of fresh sliced mushrooms, and both were excellent. The baked quiche did not set as solidly as I normally like, so next time I would add an egg and cut back a bit on the milk/mayo mixture. Otherwise, this was a - Read more ...
  8. The crowd goes wild!! My first quiche ever, and what a hit! I used other suggestions i.e. Sauted onions and spinach (used frozen spinach, thawed and drained really well). Also added some feta with the chedddar. Did not add any extra egg, and no salt (cheese is salty enough.) I used a frozen deep dish - Read more ...
  9. This recipe is fabulous! I toyed with it a little bit based on what other reviewers had to say, and it came out perfect. I sauteed fresh spinach with the onions, as well as with minced garlic and sundried tomatoes in butter, and I used fresh plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise. I also used a - Read more ...
  10. This was great-tasting and easy to make. Luckily I bought a package of 2 pie shells and ended up using both of them. I got regular nine inch shells and there was not enough room in one for all the ingredients. I will make this again.
