"Perfect! Not only easy to prepare but turns out beautiful! Picture worthy quiche was excellent. Great recipe, perfect cooking time. To super-size a little I do use 3 eggs and entire box of spinach. As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine, I like this recipe because it can be easily customized to my families tastes."

"I made this last night. I made two changes...I used broccoli instead of spinach, because I already had it in my freezer and I made it crustless. It was very good."

"After reading the reviews, I skipped the mayo, used 4 eggs, added some hot pepper flakes and Italian seasoning. Since I had a deep dish pie crust, I increased the chicken to 2 cups. Using the convection function on my oven, this turned out beautifully browned and the family loved it. Will definitely make again!"

"I substituted broccoli for the spinach, cut back (just a little) on the mayo and used a combination of milk and half and half for the rest of the liquid. I also added a little Italian seasoning and cayenne pepper for additional flavor. My kids were sure they weren't going to like this...so they had seconds just to be sure. : ) Delicious!"

"This has been a favorite for a few years now. I found it in the 2004 annual recipe book. I have tried it many ways, substituting ham, broccoli, zucchini, adding mushrooms, bell peppers, different cheeses. More eggs, less mayo. It always come out great and we love having leftovers."
