Reviews for Vegetable Potato Quiche
"I'm afraid we didn't enjoy this like the other reviewers seemed to. I left out the ham for a vegetarian meal and while I really enjoy vegetables, the zucchini taste was overpowering to me. I did really like using the potatoes for the crust and will probably use that idea again. But I would do a different filling next time with more eggs."
"Delicious. Omitted the ham for a vegetarian meal.Also added sliced tomatoes before serving."
"This is Great!! It's easy and everyone loved it.It would also be good for a light supper. Next time I plan to double the recipe and freeze one for later. Thanks."
