I served this at a church lunch, and I had to laugh when one guy told me how much he doesn’t like vegetables. He, along with many other people, were surprised by how much they loved this veggie-filled quiche! —Melinda Calverley, Janesville, Wisconsin

Test Kitchen Tips
  • To ensure perfectly cooked quiche, start checking early to see whether it's done. Baking times are great guidelines, but because every oven heats differently, we recommend taking an early look, especially for cakes, cookies, muffins and delicate egg-based dishes.
  • For cheese that's extra melty, shred or grate it yourself.

    "One more Keeper for the Notebook. This one is very light and airy. Cheesy goodness through and through. bake time was right on. Meat, cheese, egg,mushroom and spinach ratio Perfect * I had no ham so I used some bacon and 2 lone sausage links. I also used fresh Spinach. This is not just for breakfast. This one did double duty as we ate it for breakfast and Lunch. Next time I am thinking Minis * Perfect for Brunch Buffet.

    "I wanted to use up fresh spinach and decided to try this. This is very good and no need for a pie crust, it holds together nicely. It was still good when warmed up for lunch the next day."

    "I made this yesterday for the second time. Turned out good. However, my son can't have chicken eggs or cow dairy products so I used goat cheese and duck eggs. Also I used fresh spinach, chopped up and I sauted it with the mushrooms etc. It also freezes well, and he takes it to work for his lunch."
