This recipe is so versatile! You can use Vidalia onions, green onions or leeks. Asparagus can take the place of broccoli, and you can use whatever fresh herbs or cheese you have on hand. I especially like it in spring, when I'm overwhelmed with an abundance of fresh greens. —Shannon Koene, Blacksburg, Virginia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 9, 2013

This quiche was excellent! The flavor combinations were great. My honey very much enjoyed and wanted thirds. The only changes I made to this recipe was not including the broccoli and feta cheese and I substituted Italian mixed shredded cheese for the cheddar. It turned out so good.

Great recipe. I used basil instead of rosemary just because that's my preference. I do have to admit that I tend to destroy my kitchen every time I make this. It's so good, it's worth it.
