I love quiche and wanted to make something that incorporates my Southern roots, so I came up with this version. With eggs, cheese, ham and nutritious collards, it's a meal in one. —Billie Williams-Henderson, Bowie, Maryland

"I happened to have all the ingredients on hand, except I used spinach instead of the collard greens. Made two quiches this morning intending to serve them for lunch, but my husband and older son couldn't wait and had the quiche for breakfast! Loved it! Younger son and his fiancee will have the second quiche for lunch today, when they stop over. Great recipe, delicious!"

"This is a wonderful recipe. If you don't like collards you could even substitute spinach or even broccoli and it would still be delicious. (Not really sure why the other person who "rated" this gave a crummy one-star ding to this person's delicious recipe, since she hadn't even tried making it yet... too many people don't seem to understand what a review is. All that did was make this recipe look bad, when I assure you it is not!) So definitely try this! It's awesome!"

"I don't usually post a review until I've tried the recipe, but I'm making an exception. This recipe sounds like a must-try! All the ingredients go together so well. I will be rating it soon!"
