  1. I made this over the weekend and it turned out fantastic. It was so delicious and my family really enjoyed it. I did change it slightly... I omitted the green chilis and used green onions and added spinach and bacon. The base ingredients are perfect for a quiche. I will make this again. UPDATE 4/13/15 - Read more ...
  2. This is my recipe I posted, but just realized that my recipe is a little different than what ended up here. I use 1/2 C half a half (not 1-1/2) and 2 cups diced onion (or two medium onions, sauteed or not). Also I use a deep 9" glass pie plate and the Pillsbury refrigerator - Read more ...
  3. I use this as my base recipe, it is so easy and the whole family loves it. I will either add asparagus spears or brocolli and ham. The posibilities are endless.
  4. This was my first attempt at a genuine quiche, and it turned out great! After reading the reviews I was afraid there would be too much filling, but while the crust was full there was no mess in the oven. I did have a 9.5" pie pan, however. I also cooked the onions with the - Read more ...

There was enough filling to fill two frozen store-bought (Marie Callendar brand) piecrusts.
  7. Delicious. Even people who don't like quiche might like this one. The onion and green chilies give it a little kick. I followed the recipe exactly. I used a regular Pyrex glass pie plate and the recipe amounts were right on target. No spillover whatsoever. Puffed up to a golden brown in 60 minutes. I - Read more ...
  8. We tried this quiche for brunch the other morning. We had company and the guests had seconds as did I. This is a very good recipe and easy to make. We did use two cans of green chilies 4oz each. This was the only change.
  9. Excellent!!!
