Makeover Real-Man Quiche Recipe

Publisher Photo
This quiche is one of my husband's favorites, probably because it has bacon. Sometimes I add sliced fresh white or baby portobello mushrooms and saute them with the onions for more "meatiness." The makeover version looks wonderful! — Ruby Hochstetler, Holland, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 22, 2014

We were very disappointed in this. The frozen spinach gave it a really weird texture.

This is in response to danajoanne420's question. I make a very similar quiche and it works great without a crust. Just be sure to generously spray the pan with cooking spray.

I've made this for Easter Brunch last year and it was a big hit. i was wondering if you could you make this "crustless" and it be even more healthy?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2013

Excellent recipe. I had the leftovers for breakfast. It did take an hour to bake. I will also prebake the crust in the future.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 28, 2012

This was delicious - definately a make again. I halved the recipe to just make 1 quiche. I added a package of baby bella mushrooms with the onions. I also used some chopped fresh tomato - patted dry with a paper towel. (not a fan of sundried tomatoes). My quiche took close to an hour to cook - but it was worth it. I think next time I will try precooking the crust.
