This was heaven! Who needs a crust when you can make quiche like this? It was so quick and easy and made my kitchen smell wonderful as it was baking. I woke up wanting something a little fancier than an omelette, and did a quick search. I had to make a few changes based on what I had on hand. I can't find gruyere where I live so I used generic mixed cheese and it was still amazing. I added some small cubes of ham and also some thin red pepper slices and minced garlic that I needed to use up. It was perfect! Also used cherry tomatoes because I didn't have the plum-sized ones. They baked up very nicely. So flavorful! And did I mention it was quick and easy? So happy with this recipe! Thanks for posting.

This was perfect for Christmas morning! I put all the ingredients together the night before, then in the morning, it baked while the kids opened presents. By the time the packages where all unwrapped, the quiche was cooked, and the family had a nice breakfast together, full of protein and veggies!

This is a perfect Quiche recipe - the texture is moist - not like some of the bought rubbery ones. I added a layer of artificial crab and everyone enjoyed the recipe - even asked for the recipe to take home. I made up the quiche in the am but held off pouring in the egg mixture until just before popping it in the oven - took 45 minutes, golden edges wonderful flavor. Unfortuneately I put the basil under the tomatoes and it would have looked so nice over them (my error) Thanks Derf for a WINNER 26 Aug 09 Made again and this time I cut back a few ingredients - I used 3 eggs, 1/2 cup evaporated 2% milk, 1 1/2 oz of light gouda & 2 tbsp parmesan sprinkled on top for the last 15 minuts of baking - It was still wonderful Thanks again Derf for a lovely Summer dinner

Yummo, this has great flavour and is so simple to do too. I also added some shredded ham I had to use up and instead of gruyere just vintage tasty cheese, made for a lovely lunch, thanks for posting!

Fixed this along with two other quiches for our community group, this one disappeared in a blink. Fantastic!!! I used swiss cheese because that is what I had on hand. Turned out perfect.

Fabulous taste and it doesn't get easier than this. What a great light meal! The only change I made was to use a pre-shredded italian cheese mix. By the time the oven had pre-heated the quiche was ready to bake. Love it! I think next time I'll add basil into the milk/egg mixture if I have fresh basil for a more intense basil flavour. Wonderful recipe, Derf!

You can't get any easier than this. A light and flavoursome quiche. I didn't have any evaporated milk so used cream instead which worked well. This was a perfect recipe enjoyed by my husband and I which fits in well with our low-carb eating plan. Thank you!

I cooked this as an appetizer for my parents' anniversary meal. THEY LOVED IT! Thank you so much for submitting it. Instead of the onions (my dad doesn't like onions) I added an extra layer of cheese on top. The meal was a big success! Thanks! :)

This is an excellent recipe, and versatile in what can be added or changed (like adding ham or bacon, or changing the flavor of cheese). What I like best is how it keeps for a quick breakfast or snack, or a lunch to be carried to the office.
