Best-of-Show Tomato Quiche Recipe

I knew this delicious recipe was a "keeper" when I first tried it in the 1970s as a new bride- it impressed my in-laws when I made it for them! Now I sometimes substitute Mexican or Cajun seasoning for the basil. No matter how it's seasoned, it's wonderful.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 13, 2012

I found this recipe a few years ago in the Taste of Home magazine. I have a family that does NOT like tomatoes but for some reason this is a recipe they love and request when tomatoes are in season. It has become a summer favorite in my family. I don't always have swiss cheese on hand but it tastes good with whatever cheese I substitute.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 13, 2012

Made this because my dad loves tomatoes, was very good. I used gruyere cheese in place of the swiss as we don't like swiss. Also the crust is kind of soft, I had to re-roll it as I could not pick it up. Maybe more flour?
