After reading the other reviews, I changed the recipe abit. I figured most of the excess liquid was coming from the tomatoes. So, I took 1/4 tsp. of the total salt and sprinkled it over the tomato slices and then placed the slices between two paper towels. While the slices were resting(approx.20 min.) I prepared the rest of the recipe. I added an additional egg for a total of 4 eggs and I also whisked in 2 T. of flour to the egg mixture. In addition to the oregano, I added, 1 T. chopped, fresh Basil. Draining the tomatoes and adding the extra egg and flour, made for a firmer but still light texture. My family, including my non-vegetable eating husband loved it. There were no leftovers.
I halved this recipe and used only cheddar (didn't have MJ on hand). With other reviewers, it came out watery, in retrospect I should have followed the lead of grumpychef and salted the tomatoes. At any rate, I found the taste too mild for me, and the texture very strange. My first attempt at a quiche, not sure what I did wrong.
Very good but I also found the veggies to be a bit weepy. I also added a yellow bell pepper. It turned out fluffy and custardy and very delicious.
