I made this quiche years ago and had forgotten about. I fixed it again and still think it's great. I did make a few changes. I used imitation crab and egg beaters. Lowered the cholesterol count a lot and still tastes great.

I LOVE this recipe!! My mom gave it to me years ago & it's become a go-to when I want to make an easy, elegant breakfast or brunch dish. Nice to know where it came from. And it's so adaptable--a little imagination & you can create all kinds of variations. Try it and enjoy!

This is fabulous! I left the directions for my dh to prepare when I got home from aerobics. It tastes wonderful! What a wonderful mingling of flavors. Thanks so much!
