Cauliflower Beef Quiche

My interest in cooking began when my family would go to Grandma's farm for Sunday dinners. This quiche is hearty enough for brunch as well as dinner.— Carire Phelps, Hillsboro, New Hampshire

    This quiche was enjoyed by all at a church potluck this past weekend. The preparation was easy and shorter baking time proved to be most efficient.

    I decreased to about 50-75% all the ingredients for my 9" pie pan and it still overflowed about a 1/2 cup of egg mixture onto the cookie pan I thankfully put underneath it. Took 60 minutes, not 30-40, to bake. Bland and almost tasteless; needed salt and flavorings like sage. Definately will not be making this again; only benefit is that the cauliflower tasted good with cheese.
