I received this recipe from my mother-in-law, an all-around great cook. Everyone raves about her rich quiche when she serves it at card parties. I love to cook, but with a 4-month-old, I don't have a lot of time in the kitchen these days. -Marlene Kole, Highland Heights, Ohio

"I don't like pie crust, so this is absolutely perfect for me."

"Made this for a Bible study group -- halved the recipe using 5 eggs and pretty much the same. Filled my 10" glass pie plate nicely but @ 350 it definitely was not done; and I am pretty sure (since other "stuff" cooks correctly) that this recipe might be a bit off! I had to turn the temp up to 375 to get it done so I could leave ... consequently ... but well received and it did taste pretty good. I did dice up a small can of mushrooms and maybe next time will add a bit of spinach. Worth the time to figure out the correct cooking time!"

"I made this for a brunch potluck today and it was SO good! I didn't have 10 inch pans so I added an extra egg and put it in 3 9 inch pans. I'm really glad my son and I liked it so much because we are having the leftover one for dinner tonight!"

"Great - very light! Nice change from tomatoey pasta dishes for a potluck. That it makes 2 quiches is terrific for brunches/luncheons, too. And it's great that you don't have to fuss with crusts. Keep to the Swiss cheese, don't substitute."
