"After reading the reviews, I skipped the mayo, used 4 eggs, added some hot pepper flakes and Italian seasoning. Since I had a deep dish pie crust, I increased the chicken to 2 cups. Using the convection function on my oven, this turned out beautifully browned and the family loved it. Will definitely make again!"

"I substituted broccoli for the spinach, cut back (just a little) on the mayo and used a combination of milk and half and half for the rest of the liquid. I also added a little Italian seasoning and cayenne pepper for additional flavor. My kids were sure they weren't going to like they had seconds just to be sure. : ) Delicious!"

"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. )"
