My mother-in-law shared the recipe for this cheesy salmon dish. It dresses up convenient canned salmon in a very satisfying way. We enjoy this pretty quiche frequently during Lent. -Jane Horn, Bellevue, Ohio

"I'm not a fan of canned salmon either, but I love fresh, so how about trying it with fresh salmon? Baked before using in the recipe, of course. Think I'll give it a try."

"Quiche does not have an over-bearing salmon taste but one does need to like salmon because it can definately be tasted. Kind of a mild quiche, a good introduction for one to try a salmon quiche. My husband and I both rated it about an 8 out of 10 - pretty good."
