Reviews for Spinach Venison Quiche
"Love this quiche! My husband requests it often. 10 points on my weight watchers program for 1/8 of the quiche but is so hearty and filling it's all that I need! Like a whole meal. Good any time of day."
"Made this with ground chuck instead of venison This was like a original jo's scarmble and use fresh spinach Yummmmm!"
"This took longer to bake than expected. Can't wait for it to come out of the oven. Looks good and used everything found in the fridge. Subbed evaporated milk for cream and fresh spinach then blue cheese for feta. And spices for veggies. It was ready in 50 min, but I cut the eggs down to three. I can't wait to try the real recipe. Luck to find this recipe today and venison in the freezer."
