"I've made this quiche for both family and overnight company. It was a hit both times."

"I didn't have any Havarti cheese so used shredded Cheddar instead. I didn't want to have to deal with large pieces of broccoli and cauliflower, so I chopped the thawed vegetables a bit before proceeding with the recipe. I actually doubled the recipe and made two of these quiches and gave one away. A wonderful crustless quiche recipe and one I am likely to make again and again!"

"This is my favorite crustless Quiche recipe. Easy to make and very delicious. The cream cheese and havarti cheese make it, great blend of flavors."

"I've made this twice now using vegetables I've had on hand and we really like it. What, however, are California-blend vegetables? Thanks"
