Excellent !! Made it last night, doubled the recipe with some very minor changes (canned evap. milk instead of 1% and only 10 oz. of spinach between 2 quiches). Very good and easy comfort food. Thanks.
Wow! One of the best quiches I've made. Great recipe from Bruce's "Diet Doctor." I had to make a few modifications to the recipe because I didn't have some ingrediants in stock (mixed cheddar, asaigo, & parmesean cheese instead of swiss, shallots instead of onions, & added 2 cloves garlic)& I'm sure calories were impacted. However,the egg mixture that binds the quiche together was what I would consider the real treasure. It made the quiche moist and flavorful! Hard not to have seconds! RJH & I anticipated the leftovers for lunch today.
This was a delicious quiche. I doubled and a half the recipe and used 2 deep dish crusts. This is a very versatile recipe that I will make again and again. Next time I will only prebake the crust five minutes or I will put foil over the edges as the crust got a bit burnt before the filling was done. Also, I wasn't sure where the cheese fit in. It didnt list what to do with it in the directions. I put some with the chicken and spinach, some in the egg mixture, and some sprinkled on top. I've already had 1/4 of one pie. Its rich and tasty. Thanks!
