"Reduce whipping cream to 1.5 C and use a deep dish pie shell. To reduce spillage, I put pie shell with cheese and veggies on the pulled-out baking rack, then poured in the egg mixture. Okay to use half and half. I substituted 2 asparagus spears for squash."

"This was delicious served with the Tomato Mozzarella Sauté from the same issue. The only change I made was to substitute zucchini for the mushrooms. I found that I had enough of the egg/cream mixture to make a second quiche; but unfortunately only had one pie crust."

"I only changed mixing Swiss and cheddar instead of only Swiss and it was fantastic. My daughter especially likes how light and fluffy it is."

"Modified it a bit. Omited the crust b/c we wanted to have it w/ english muffins. Added 1/2 lb. cooked turkey sausage after the spinach. Used sweet onion instead of red onion. Also did not have fresh rosemary so I used dried and it still worked good! Yummy!"
