Rich and elegant, this party-pretty quiche is flecked with minced parsley, chives and cilantro. It’s ideal for a weekend brunch, but would also be wonderful as a late-night supper. —Lori Wardoclip, Gibsonia, Pennsylvania

"This was terrific and garnered a lot if praise. I made a few alterations: used a blend of Swiss and Gruyere, added fresh tarragon and thyme with the other herbs in the recipe and used crab claw meat this is going in my favorites"
