When I hosted a Christmas cookie exchange several years ago, I served this quiche as an appetizer. You can also cut it into wedges to serve as main dish for breakfast or brunch.—Arliene Hillinger, Rancho Palos Verdes, California

"This was delicious. I didn't add the whole package of spinach; maybe half, and that was plenty. I used packaged Italian shredded cheese instead of Swiss, because that is what I had on hand. Next time I might reduce the amount of cheese and replace it with an extra egg, as it seemed like too much cheese. Overall, I really enjoyed this recipe. I liked that it made 2 quiche. I cooked both and then froze one. I took the frozen one out of the freezer a couple of weeks later and cooked it in the oven for about an hour and it came out beautifully!"

"This made a quick and easy meal for Christmas Eve. I made it as a crustless quiche. Served with some Waldorf salad."

"Way too much spinach versus egg and cheese! I would also use mozzarella instead of swiss, otherwise it's too sweet for me."

"This was really tasty! easy to prepare. I did end up doubling the crab to 12 oz to get a really good crab taste. At first I didn't like the idea of making two, but it was nice to make two. I ended up freezing the 2nd one."
