MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 25, 2013

Great recipe but I like a denser quiche so I will add less milk. This recipe is so versatile, I added pepperonis and Cheddar cheese. If you are not a fan of onions (I am) then you might want to use half an onion and caramelize them first. I used what the recipe called for and the onions come out delicious. kind of like roasted pearl onions!!

This was a real disappointment. The onions were so overpowering. I think they should be cooked first, instead of being put in raw. Now my whole freezer stinks of onions.

I made this recipe for the first time today and it was excellent! Easy to make and so delicious. I served it to company and they all had seconds. I didn't change anything and found the favors balanced each other nicely. I don't usually eat onions but they were great in this recipe. I love that I have an extra one in my freezer, and so does my family!

Great! My family loved this quiche. Even people who don't like onion will welcome some in this cheesy supper. I eliminated the peppers- my family isn't big on them. Instead of using sausage you can use 3 cups of cubed cooked ham. It was such a good supper, everyone will be sure to like it!
