I served this dish at a church luncheon and I had to laugh when one gentleman told me his distaste for vegetables. He, along with many others, were surprised 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.

    "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 would like a pie crust, would it be soggy if I used this mixture in one?"

    "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."

    "We make quiche for our church group often and all love the spinach. We use fresh spinach and it works very well. Also, I think it has more flavor. crustless works well for my husband because he watches his carb intake."
