Reviews for Two-Cheese Spinach Quiche
"Let me just state that I speak from experience when I tell you that 1c. of milk for just 3 eggs is too much and the quiche will be too moist for my liking.I used a standard 9"/1qt. pie plate. I left out the mushroom, used 1c. cooked and drained frozen spinach in place of 1/2c. fresh, added an extra egg and cut back on the half and half cream by 1/4c. I added pepper and 1T. raw white onion, diced. I used 1/2c. finely chopped ham lunch meat (Hillshire Farm). I used a total of 1c. shredded cheese (Great Value Fiesta Blend- 4 different cheeses and mozzarella.)This is very good. Because I used less liquid and added an extra egg this is firm and not?too moist like ones that use a lot of liquid. I could have used a little less ham because it's a little smoky. This baked in 28 minutes."
"easy to make, I have even substiuted the meat with spam because that was all I had available, I just left out the salt. Super yummy!"
