Pepperoni Spinach Quiche Recipe

Publisher Photo
Several years ago, I had to come up with an appetizer to serve at a pool party, and this colorful quiche was a hit. It's great on an antipasto tray, cut into wedges. —Elly Townsend, Summerfield, Florida

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 4, 2013

I have a great quiche recipe, but was looking for something different. This one fit the bill. I used both red and yellow peppers, for some extra color, and also added some swiss cheese and extra garlic. The melding of flavors was amazing, and the pepperoni gave it just a little kick. What I like is that by using the crescent roll crust, you get just a hint of that with each bite, which adds to the lightness of this dish. This goes into my "must take to the party" recipe file.

This is great but in stead of red pepper I used mushrooms and everbody loved it I will definitely make it again

Delicious. I cooled the leftovers, then covered with foil and refrigerated. They stayed wonderfully firm for the next two days, and heated so nicely in the microwave. I think the flavors were better the next day, too. The only change I made was using a Mexican blend cheese.

This turned out delicious, what I liked most about making it, I was able to cut all the veggies the day before, & have everything ready in separate bowls, so it only took minutes to put it all together. will definitely make it again, not only did it taste good but looked very impressive. thanks Elly for the wonderful recipe.
