Meet the Cook: This recipe came to me from my mother - it's the kind you request after just one bite! Unlike some quiches, it's also hearty enough that it appeals equally to both woman and men. Cooking is something that I've always liked. I pore over cookbooks the way other people read novels! In addition, I collect antique kitchen utensils. My husband and I have one son, 12. -Deanna Baldwin, Bermuda Dunes, California

"Followed recipe, but needed 2-9 " crusts (Marie Callenders frozen) for the amount of filling made. Added mushrooms to onions in the saute. Used 1/2 tsp. salt and added 1/4 t pepper. Otherwise, the steps for making this quiche are spot on, especially the pre-baking of the crusts. With two quiches from this recipe the total time of baking was about 55 min. Start checking at 45 min."

"This recipe was very good. This was my first time making quiche and I couldn't find a 10inch crust so I made it with the 9inch deep dish. It was a little full and I had to cook it longer, but it still turned good."
