"Too runny even after squeezing spinach dry. Will try less milk and add parmesan cheese next time. Good flavor though!"

"I use fat-free half and half - makes it a little richer. also, for those who ended up with a soupy mixture that didn't set, the recipe says to cook & drain - i thaw in the micro 3 min and dran, but then you must squeeze it until almost dry. makes a big diffence!"

"I sauteed the onion and some fresh spinach leaves in the leftover bacon grease, so that lovely smokey flavor went all through the quiche. Also, backed off on the milk to 1 cup and I'm glad I did it or would have overflowed the pie crust. Will definitely make again."

"What a disappointment. First, it would not fit in my 9" pie crust. I ended up throwing out the crust and putting the mixture in a deep dish 10" pie plate with the hopes I could turn it into a crustless quiche. The middle never did set. (I did drain and press out the spinach). Ended up having to call for pizza delivery."

"I have not tried this particular recipe for Spinach Bacon Quiche, but my recipe is similar to this one. It sounds to me that some of the reviewers did not understand the importance of draining the spinach. To get out all of the extra moisture from the spinach you need to put it in a cheesecloth and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. I have a vegetable saver bag that I got in the produce department (it is washable) I put my spinach in that and when I am finished squeezing, the spinach ends up in a ball with no liquid in it. I usually double my spinach; keeping the rest of the ingredients the same. Mixed together it makes the perfect size portion for the pie crust. The things that I have never put into a spinach quiche is the ground mustard or paprika. I have added the nutmeg as suggested by another review that I had read. I am going to fix this for dinner tonight. I will post again to let you know how it turns out for me. Wish me luck! Smile "

"I used frozen spinach and the whole thing turned out watery. Definitely not the quiche texture and even with a cup of cheese, I still felt like I couldn't taste it. Disappointed."

"This recipe was a disappointment! The mixture was overflowing my 9"deep dish pie crust. It was so runny and soupy that even after baking it for a hour at 400 degrees it still wasn't completely set in the middle. This did not please my hungry family.

Please retest this recipe because the milk mixture is not right and the frozen spinach amount is way too much!"

"Only used 1-1/2 cups milk, added 1/4 teas. of cayenne, pre-baked the pie crust. Yum! Note: Spinach must be dry! Squeeze out the liquid in a triple layered paper towel. If you simply drain spinach, you have a soggy mess!"

"This recipe makes way too much filling for a 9 inch pastry shell. Even after I had to throw away about a half cup of the mixture, it was still overflowing and made a gigantic mess. It hasn't finished cooking yet, but I won't make it again due to the mess. Perhaps if only half the spinach was used it would be better."
