This is a wonderful recipe. I keep it on my refridgerator. When I am "cleaning out the fridge" I will often make several then freeze them for quick dinners or bring out several for an easy night of entertaining. The frozen pie crusts make it so easy and they are themselves inexpensive. I always have one on had to take to friends or family that are under the weather. Since the pie crust comes with its own pie pan -no pan to wash or to worry when it will be returned by loved ones .Thanks os much for this recipe!!!

This was the first quiche I've ever made, and it was great. I used about a cup of sauteed onions, peppers, and mushrooms, along with a cup of shredded mixed cheese. I used recipe #18185 to make my crust. I baked it at 400 degrees for 35 minutes, and it was perfectly set. I was a little worried about using a 10 inch pie pan instead of a nine inch, but I had no problems. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I'm sure I'll use it many times in the future.

Excellent and Easy. I added pre-cooked bacon bits and cheddar cheese and sprinkled with paperika. Beautiful and delicious. I made another with Ham, Asparagus, and Swiss Chees. It tasted good, but took alot longer to bake. Also, asparagus flavoring was stronger than expected.
