I cut the recipe in half, used 2 whole eggs, 1 cup fat free half and half. Trader Joes has Roasted corn kernels so I had to use them. Sauteed in garlic olive oil instead of butter. Skipped the salt and didn`t miss it! This is a sweet custard quiche. I would have liked to see maybe 1-2 more eggs. I did double the cheese. I must say I made half it was enough for 8 servings. Thanks for the good eats.
This has got to be one of the better vegetable quiches I have ever tried! I love the combinations of cheeses and the spiciness that goes along with it. Very easy to put together. And I just love the bubbliness the cheeses add, almost like having pizza, except more healthy and no gresiness added.
