"Turned out great! I agree with everyone about cooking the veggies first and using less milk. It was delicious. I enjoyed it for dinner, breakfast and even took some to work for lunch! So glad I have a second one in the freezer to make on a busy weeknight."

"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!"

"Absolutely delicious! I chose this recipe because I had mozzarella cheese on hand but no Swiss. The only thing I changed was that I used the full pound of Italian sausage because I only made one quiche. I'm glad I did because I think the quiche would have been a disappointment without the full pound of meat in it."

"titabell-try usning reduced fat pie crust (in tubes by Pillsbury with the tubes of biscuits, etc.) and Italian turkey sausage, 1 % or skim milk and part egg-whites instead of all whole eggs. That should make a difference that might work for you."

"I've made similar recipes so I know this will be a big hit with all the ingredients we like best. BUT ... samll family so should I freeze the second quiche baked or unbaked? Sounds as if it should be unbaked due to the extra cooking time."
