Reviews for Tomato Quiche
Sort By :
"I made this for brunch, with a couple tweaks. I added a small head of chopped broccoli florets, one clove of crushed garlic to the onion mixture, and since my pie dish is just 9.5 inches, I added 1/4 cup less half and half. It was delicious! Everyone really enjoyed it, and it was great to make the day before and reheat that day. Would make again, and with other veggies added!"
"If you love Tomato Pie you will love Tomato Quiche. I added 4 strips of bacon, crumbled and a 1/4 tea of dried basil. I omitted the salt ingredient because of using bacon. Now our family is confused about which dish is their favorite. Nice problem to have. Make sure your tomatoes are as dry as you can get them or it will be soggy otherwise."
"I really liked this dish and am surprised no other reviews mentioned how salty it is.I will definitely make it again but will omit salt completely I am not normally so salt sensitive,even my boyfriend commented about it,and he never comments about salt. Otherwise,had great flavor.I used 9inch pie crust,couldn't fit all cream/cheese mixture in,definitely use 10 inch crust."
"I made this using Roma tomatoes from my garden. I seeded and peeled and chopped enough to make 2 cups. When I evaporated the water there was just enough tomatoes to cover the bottom of my deep dish 10 pie pan. I also used fresh thyme as I didn't have any dried time in my cupboard. I didn't have the same problem as other people who wrote they had too much filling. I actually use 5 eggs to get the filling to the top! My family loves this recipe."
"This is a great recipe made as written and also a great basic recipe you can add your own favorites to. I like to add fresh basil to this. Thanks for a great recipe."
