Reviews forMakeover Real-Man Quiche
"We were very disappointed in this. The frozen spinach gave it a really weird texture."
"This is in response to danajoanne420's question. I make a very similar quiche and it works great without a crust. Just be sure to generously spray the pan with cooking spray."
"I've made this for Easter Brunch last year and it was a big hit. i was wondering if you could you make this "crustless" and it be even more healthy?"
"This was delicious - definately a make again. I halved the recipe to just make 1 quiche. I added a package of baby bella mushrooms with the onions. I also used some chopped fresh tomato - patted dry with a paper towel. (not a fan of sundried tomatoes). My quiche took close to an hour to cook - but it was worth it. I think next time I will try precooking the crust."
