Reviews for Tomato Olive Quiche
"I bought a new quiche pan and had tomatoes and onions from the garden, so I gave this a try. Husband and I both loved it! I used (as you may have guessed) a quiche/tart pan, which is shallower than a pie plate, but without changing any volumes it was perfectly filled and looked lovely. A few tweaks were in order - how are 2 provolone slices supposed to cover the olives and onions on the bottom? I used 4 so it would form a complete layer. Also, the coating and frying seemed complicated so I just roasted the tomatoes in a 425 degree oven for 30 minutes with a little olive oil drizzle, garlic salt, and fresh thyme from the garden. I used a lot more than 2 medium tomatoes, too...doesn't seem like it would be nearly enough otherwise. Used egg beaters for the eggs, and half-and-half for the cream to try to cut out some calories. Don't even mess with those cheap sliced black olives that sell for like 50 cents a can...yuck...the kalamatas were the perfect addition. Really enjoyed this dish and will definitely make again!"
"Very good and easy. My husband really liked it. Will definitely make again. Only advice: put it in a deep dish pie plate or use a deep dish already made crust."
"rena2mcdole Why would you review this before you even try the recipe? Review means you've tried it & you like it or you don't."
"Very delicious !!!! Only change is that I used a bolder olive. Kalamata works well with all they other flavors in this quiche."
"After reading the comment I chopped the tomatoes, sprinkled them with salt and put them on paper towels to juice out. I did not fry them. Turned out delicious. Not to mention saving a step and some dishes!!"
"I did not like this. It turned out how it was supposed to, but I simply did not like the dish very much. Would not make again."
"I would make this again but add more zip, maybe some hot peppers and a touch of garlic."
"I going to the kitchen right now to try this, it sounds great and has ingredients that I love, what could go wrong?"
"This quiche is beyond amazing. Don't be put off by the 3-star review; I've served this quiche several times to guests and I get raves every time! It's time-consuming but worth every minute it takes!"
"My husband and I both love quiche, but there was just too much tomato in this for our taste. We loved the onion and olive combination. Next time, I may use less tomato, and finely chop them. Adding Italian sausage would make an amazing addition as well!"
