Mark, you really have a good recipe here. I made this for lunch and it was easy for me to put it together and let it sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before baking so I could get the salad assembled. It was delicious. The next time I make this I am going to use another type cheese. I have been discovering some tasty cheeses at my deli, and I think It would be good with a smoked cheese. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

I had some girlfriends over for lunch and served them your fabulous quiche. You are correct about it being very rich but what a taste extravaganza. I served with salad, homemade rolls and white wine. Not a bad cure for the mid-winter blahs. Going to try it out on my mom. She is a quiche freak and will just love this. Thanks, yooper.
