This is so easy to prepare and so elegant to serve! I followed the recipe ingredients exactly with the Swiss cheese and wouldn't change a thing except maybe increase the nutmeg - but that's a personal preference. I made one 9" pie pan rather than the individual quiches and baked it a little bit longer.
