how much chicken? don't see it on the list of ingredients
This has been a favorite for a few years now. I found it in the 2004 annual recipe book. I have tried it many ways, substituting ham, broccoli, zucchini, adding mushrooms, bell peppers, different cheeses. More eggs, less mayo. It always come out great and we love having leftovers.
This quiche baked to a golden brown and looked so pretty. It was delicious (and I just realized that I forgot to put the cheese on the bottom. )
OMGoodness, we *love* quiche. This has already become one of our favorites. YUM! J.
Excellent flavor! I also doubled the eggs and spinach and put it in a 10x10 casserole dish instead of a crust just to take away some of the calories. My husband gave it a 9.
