"Very good recipe. I used Canadian bacon for the ham."
"New family favorite menu ! We all love it !"
"I wanted to use up fresh spinach and decided to try this. This is very good and no need for a pie crust, it holds together nicely. It was still good when warmed up for lunch the next day."
"I would like a pie crust, would it be soggy if I used this mixture in one?"
"I made this yesterday for the second time. Turned out good. However, my son can't have chicken eggs or cow dairy products so I used goat cheese and duck eggs. Also I used fresh spinach, chopped up and I sauted it with the mushrooms etc. It also freezes well, and he takes it to work for his lunch."
"Great recipe as written and you can add or subtract veggies that your family likes. No need for a crust."
"We make quiche for our church group often and all love the spinach. We use fresh spinach and it works very well. Also, I think it has more flavor. crustless works well for my husband because he watches his carb intake."
"Delicious and easy. My kids (ages 5 and 9) also loved ! Simple to adapt with different meats or veggies. Will make again soon!"
"This was delicious! It was so easy to make and cooked in about 35 min for me! Thanks!"
"Recipe tastes great as presented."
"Everyone one Loves this one in our House you can't go wrong!!! We add cold sliced tomatoes to it just delicious!!! :)"
"I improvised using fresh spinach that I cooked down with the onions and ham. No mushrooms in the fridge so they were left out. It was really quite tasty. I used Boar's Head honey ham that I already had in the fridge as well."
"Family loves this dish YUM"
"Wow! This recipe is super easy and convertible! I did like another post suggested and added 1 egg for 6 total and swapped ingredients to what is available where I'm located (swapped ham = canned tuna, fresh cheese = cheese sauce, and spinach = malungay) the rest was the same except I added garlic. Big hit! As a side note if using a convection oven it cuts the time down to about 25-30 min! We ate it for dinner with rice."
"This is a good recipe to use as a base to build your own favorite. You can line the greased pan with (opt) sliced muenster4-5 and it will not stick . I always have added at least 1/4 a cup of 1/2 n 1/2 to my quiche. Definitely add spices as so much spinach is tasteless and cut back on the amt spinach or it's too strong. Used an 8 oz block and shredded jack plus mixed in a sm amt of parmesan. Google and compare quiche ingred's til you find one you like best then just swap out what you prefer. Used 6 eggs since mine seemed smaller than usual. 3.5 stars"
"I don't like cooked spinach (I like raw spinach in salads) - so I used the broccoli and it came out really good!"
"When I see some other the other recipes for this has a blue ribbon. It makes me wonder why this recipe does not. This one has the most 5 star ratings. I just made this for breakfast. Just love this! The man I take care of raved over it. It usually takes a bit for him to rave over something. I didn't have either one of these cheeses. Nor did I have enough of any one cheese. So I actually used a combo of 4 cheeses ( Smoked Gouda, Goat, Provolone, and Velveeta.) He doesn't like mushrooms, so I omitted them. Other than that I made it the same. Loved it. I will be making this again."
"This is a very good recipe...made it without the ham completely vegetarian....smelled so good baking...added a dash of nutmeg to egg"
"I've made this several times and it is delicious."
"This is a pretty good recipe but needed a bit of spice/seasoning for my family. I made it twice, altering ONLY the addition of mushrooms the first time (husband is allergic). It went over "ok" but with a few complaints about seasoning. I made it again altering it a bit. I used fresh spinach, used green chile instead of mushrooms, added salt, pepper and garlic-to taste. I used Monterey Jack cheese but only used about 1/2 to 2/3 the amount. This time, family loved it! When I make it for breakfast, I use cooked bacon and/or sausage!"
"Yummy! Fine without the ham if you want to go vegetarian. Olive oil is a great substitute.~ Theresa"
"<p>I have been a spinach lover all my life, and love dishes that can be served for any meal. I really liked how easily this dish comes together, and without the extra fat and calories of a crust. I did drain and press the spinach well to make sure that most of the moisture was removed.</p>"
"This was so easy and delicious! It was the first time I made a quiche and all the kids loved it."
"This was my first time making quiche. It was easy to put together and was delicious. I used fresh spinach and sliced zucchini for the veg because that is what I had on hand. This recipe is a keeper."
"I made this tonight with a few changes. I used fresh spinach which I sauteed with the onion. Instead of ham I used fresh tomatoes. This was delicious! A new favorite in our house!"
"Absolutely delish! I sub low fat cheeses (anything I have on hand) and any veggie when I don't have spinach. I used turkey bacon instead of ham once and the family loved it. The best thing about this recipe is that it's so versatile and so good! Leftovers are unheard of!!"
"I made this with a 3 cheese blend of mozzarella, provolone and chedder. It turned out amazing. Highly recommend."
"Can substitute lots of veggies & meats with this. I make a vegetarian version without ham and it is great."
"I made this for a ladies brunch. It turned out BEAUTIFULLY and everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. I would highly recommend using the Muenster cheese (as opposed to the Pepper Jack, that they say could be substituted) b/c it made it so nice and creamy. This recipe was easy to make, the prep time only took 10-15 minutes and it was absolutely delicious! A few people commented that they don't like spinach, but in this casserole it was great.*I didn't grate or shred my Muenster cheese (it was too soft) but I just cut it up into small cubes and it worked just fine... also much easier than grating it."
