I didn't have pie crust on hand, so I took a gamble and added 3/4 cup of Bisquick to the egg mixture before pouring it all into a glass deep dish pie plate. I then topped it with just a light dusting of ground nutmeg. Other than this, I kept the recipe exactly as is and used the same baking times. It turned out VERY good. The combination of ingredients wed nicely with each other. The taragon added a special and wonderful flavor. I will make this recipe again and again!

It was excellent! The tarragon added a wonderful taste. I only had dried on hand and it turned out great but next time I will try using fresh.

This was delicious. The store didn't have gruyere cheese, so I substituted swiss and my son thought it could have used a little more salt. I added some snips of bacon and sauteed green onion. Thinking next time I'll include some parmesan. But there'll definitely be a next time! :-)
