"I used egg beaters and cheese. works wonderful and lowers the calories and cholesterol. I agree about the 2 pies. family loves this on Sundays."
"Delicious! It makes two full pies. My kids love it, too. Great for dinner or brunch!"
"Added bell peppers and garlic to the onion mixture. Followed the rest of the recipe...delicious"
"I used whatever I had in my kitchen. Didn't use spinach, used cheddar cheese and canned mushrooms. No green peppers, but used red, orange, and yellow. We enjoyed the quiche , but needs more seasoning, a bit bland tasting. Also makes way more than recipe states, it easily makes 2 regular pies."
"I added while sauteing a smidge of salt (still kept the 1/2 t. salt in the egg/milk mixture), pepper, sage, basil, garlic powder, and a little more red pepper and no green pepper at all. It looked a little too green for me. Maybe I'll add a little ground Italian sausage next time. I used my favorite Pillsbury pie crusts--makes one step easier, and I used regular eggs. I suggest making a double batch as long as you are cutting up so many veggies. Five of us ate one quiche in no time! It was not watery as some had mentioned earlier."
