    Wish I Could Cook's Note:

    In my quest to find out what makes a quiche fluffy, I've cobbled together this recipe. And it makes a great tasting quiche with a beautiful presentation. The key (surprisingly) is not to overbeat the eggs, not to use too hot of an oven, and don't overdue the liquids.

      I love quiche and this one was to die for. Loved the combo of flavors with the cheesy custard like filling! Funny thing is I don't like Gruyere cheese by itself, but melted it is amazing! I didn't use as much spinach as was called for as DH doesn't care for its cooked texture. It was perfect for our tastes. Made for Veg'n Swap tag.

      This was FANTASTIC! I had to submit a review because it only has 3 Reviews and it should have more. The Gruyere cheese is phenomenal along with all the other melding of flavors. I had this for Mother's Day Brunch and everyone loved it. Great recipe and this is a keeper!

      Very good! I subbed some leftover cheese and used fat-free sour cream instead of yogurt with wonderful success. This makes a lot of filling, so after filling my frozen pie crust I filled 4 tart size pans for a future meal. Thanks for sharing!
