Reviews for Squash Quiche
Sort By :
I agree with Jennifer that it really does make 2 quiches with 2 of each squash. I made it 1x grating the squash and the next time halving the slices. I liked having bigger bites of the squash. Other than that, I loved this recipe Too bad there isn't a picture as it is pretty when baked.
This was the first quiche I have ever made myself, and it was a big hit! Even my 3-year-old nephew enjoyed it.
I would make 2 corrections: 1. I am able to make 2 quiches from this recipe, as I used 2 squash and 2 zucchini, and I did not have a deep dish crust, but this is not a problem, trust me :)
2. I would prefer to mix the veg and egg mixtures together, to achieve that typical quiche consistency.
Thank you so much for sharing this. I will definitely be adding it to my list of favorites.
