Quiche quickly became my specialty. If you like smoked salmon, this dish will both surprise you and impress your guests. Best served with Caesar salad.

Chef's Notes

Fresh or dried dill can be used; Substitute cream for the milk if desired.


  1. I wish I had read the reviews. There is way too much filling for a 9 pie crust. Cut the ingredients in half or make 2 pies.
  2. This was great! I don't do crusts so left it off. No dill. Otherwise I followed the recipe. So good. Great and it will be in my menu frequently
  3. Made this recipe for Mother s Day brunch and EVERYONE loved it even my 20 ish boys! It was quick and simple to put together and tasted amazing! I made it exactly as indicated. Making it again tonight for dinner!
  4. Made this exactly to recipe. This makes too much egg/cheese mixture even tho a deep dish pie crust was used - it overflowed and there was still 1 cups left. Yes it was tasty but it got 4 stars because of the waste.
  5. This is hands-down my new favorite recipe from the site. I love that the salmon flavor doesn't get masked by all the other ingredients. To make this a teensy bit healthier, I added sautéed spinach and cut-up cherry tomatoes. Perfect.
  6. It was good I added a tiny bit of milk and 2 eggs and made 2 quiches just because the frozen pie shells come 2 in a box. Sprinkling cheese on top made the topping a bit dry and hard to slice through. Next time I will mix the cheese with the egg mixture.
  7. This came out really nice. I only used 5 eggs and half & half instead of milk. I thought it was a little salty (and I LOVE salt).... so watch out. I will make this again.
  8. Jaded....thank you so much for an "Egg-cellent" recipe!:) I didn't have all the ingredients called for in the recipe so I made up the combination of diced ham chopped broccoli (steamed) 1/2 and 1/2 4-Cheese Mexican blend and of course the cream cheese 8 eggs a little salt and dill. I love the idea - Read more ...
  9. Excellent texture and flavor. You have to be ready for the salmon flavor however because it is not hidden at all by other ingredients.
  10. Fantastic and simple. I had just harvested some oyster mushrooms so i sauteed them with half an onion and roasted garlic. Left out the dill and 2 eggs because of the added volume of ingredients. Simply superb!
