Reviews for Mushroom Broccoli Quiche
"I make this and it just tasted like runny scrambled eggs, I cooked it like recipe called for."
"I made this quiche for dinner. We are on the Atkins Weight Loss program so I made it without the crust and it turned out great. I substituted half and half for the milk, baked it in the 9-inch pie plate. We loved it and I will make it again."
"I really like quiche so I was anxious to give this a try. It wasn't really bad but my husband came out and asked that I not make it again"
"I made this quiche last night. Not sure what I did wrong. Followed directions.I made it without the crust because I wanted less calories. My husband said it smelled great and tasted so-so. First I had it in the oven for 60 mins, but when I took it out of the oven, it was very watery. I think all the vege's need to be sauted first to get all the water out of them.Let them cool a little before adding it to the milk and egg mixture. Second, the milk and egg mixture looked like it all curlded when it came out of the oven. I will try this again. I will post an update after my second try. I am giving it 2 stars because it didnt turn out the way I had hoped. Maybe on my second try I will update my stars."
"WOW ! Yummy and easy !"
"This is absolutely delicious!! I omitted the crust to cut calories. Just sprayed a pie pan with Pam, and baked for about 40 minutes. Excellent taste - didn't change a thing. Thank you, this is my fast, go-to quiche recipe now!"
"As my husband says "it's a keeper! ""
"SingerRinger-try without the pie crust, just spay the pie plate with Pam. Keep up the good work!"
"How many calories? Can I substitute skim milk for the 2% ? Sounds yummy and want to try it."
"Easy and great for church potluck."
"Oh SingerRinger how wonderful!!!! Good for you! Plug the recipe into http://www.sparkpeople.com/, we've found that to be really close to our in-house software. The 3 eggs should be equal to a 1/2 cup, so feel free to use one egg and fill in with egg whites to that amount for less fat."
"I am anxious to try this however I need the fat, fiber, carbs and protein for a serving. Don't make fun of me- I have lost 66 pounds on Weight Watchers and need to keep this off! Thanks for the support."
"I've made this many times with many variations...delicious! For a change, try a mix of sharp cheddar and Colby instead of Swiss, or substitute spinach for the broccoli. Try adding peppers, ham, sausage, zucchini... the possibilities are endless!"
