MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 4, 2011

"Due to lack of planning for overnight guests, I had some but not all of the ingredients for this quiche. Instead of sausage, I chopped up a couple of pieces of bacon and sauteed with the onion, then used cubed ham left from Christmas dinner. I substituted a few jarred jalapenos for the fresh jalapenos and green chilies, and had to add a little mozzarrella to the monterey jack. It was still wonderful!"
