Mushroom Broccoli Quiche

I take this dish to many of my family’s picnics because it's always such a hit. Serve it at any time of day. Quiche makes a great side or meatless main course—and, of course, it's a tasty addition to brunch. —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah

    I made this quiche for dinner. We are on the Atkins Weight Loss program so I made it without the crust and it turned out great. I substituted half and half for the milk, baked it in the 9-inch pie plate. We loved it and I will make it again.

    I really like quiche so I was anxious to give this a try. It wasn't really bad but my husband came out and asked that I not make it again

    I made this quiche last night. Not sure what I did wrong. Followed directions.I made it without the crust because I wanted less calories. My husband said it smelled great and tasted so-so. First I had it in the oven for 60 mins, but when I took it out of the oven, it was very watery. I think all the vege's need to be sauted first to get all the water out of them.Let them cool a little before adding it to the milk and egg mixture. Second, the milk and egg mixture looked like it all curlded when it came out of the oven. I will try this again. I will post an update after my second try. I am giving it 2 stars because it didnt turn out the way I had hoped. Maybe on my second try I will update my stars.

    This is absolutely delicious!! I omitted the crust to cut calories. Just sprayed a pie pan with Pam, and baked for about 40 minutes. Excellent taste - didn't change a thing. Thank you, this is my fast, go-to quiche recipe now!

    How many calories? Can I substitute skim milk for the 2% ? Sounds yummy and want to try it.
