I have been making this quiche for years now. It is one of my favorites. My kids like it too. I have always skipped the 1st step. (Baking it the 8 minutes first and then the extra 5) I have had great results with just starting with the uncooked pie crust and baking it all at once. Yummy!
I'm not giving this recipe any stars as I have not tried it. My copy of this recipe came from the Sunday coupons. My copy is slightly different. it calls for 1/2 c diced mushrooms to be added into the Saute vegebles. The rest is the same. Hope to try this soon! Thanks for posting Christine (internetnut)
