Both my husband and I really like this quiche. We liked the spices and I added them according to the recipe- they added just a hint of flavor- not over powering as feared by some reviewers. The only changes I made were adding cheddar instead of Swiss cheese since my store does not carry shredded Swiss and I had shredded cheddar in the fridge. I also used a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust and did NOT precook it. It turned out fine. I have made this twice now and will make again. Super easy!

Very good!, although I made some changes. I didn't use a crust, just poured it into a greased pie pan. I omitted the flour. Instead of the whole milk I used 1 c half & half and 1/2 c whipping cream. I am interested in low carb recipes. I figured if one cuts my quiche into 6 pieces one piece is about 3.5 carbs.

Excellent, l didn't precook the crust, l find this is not necessary when it bakes for an hour. I added some symbol and about 1 tsp of dry mustard. It made very good leftovers as well. Janet. VFE

I've just made this. I didn't use ham, thyme, or rosemary. I used a little finely diced white onion in place of green onion. I used 1/4c. less milk. I tripled the broccoli to 1.5c. and precooked it for 8 minutes in the microwave the night before. DON'T USE IT RAW! I can't imagine it getting cooked through. I didn't use a crust. I lined my 10" pie plate with nonstick foil and baked this for 55 minutes. I think it was done five or so minutes before. This is excellent and I'll use just half the amount of cheese next time!

It was fantastic!! I made mine in a 10.5 inch fluted quiche/tart pan. Used one of those premade boxed pie crusts which fit the pan perfectly. Did not grease pan, it didn't stick or overflow the pan. Since mine was in a larger, shallower pan, it only had to cook about 40 minutes. It was a huge hit with the entire family. Served it with a fruit salad for a complete meal.

Yet another flawed recipe on this site. You must grease the foil or it will stick to the pastry. Also there is way too much liquid and it overflows when you fill the crust. I would cut the milk down to 3/4 to 1 cup.

Even though I didn't make the crust and used 1/2 and 1/2 Creamo in place of milk, this was a very tasty quiche and I'd definitely make it again. I might add a bit more ham and broccoli the next time, but a keeper nonetheless.

A great way to use some of the leftover Christmas or Easter ham.

This is the most flavorful quiche I have ever made. I made it for a group of ladies and they raved over it. Love the spices in it! Delicious!

We'ew not big fans of rosemary, so I left that out. And I substituted some locally made cheddar. Very good! Also, I made extra filing and baked some quiche muffins, which were a great breakfast the next morning. Going to try with asparagus instead of broccoli next time.
