I thought this recipe was great! I adjusted the recipe by sautéing the vegetables and by putting sausages in it. I also loved the added touch of nutmeg! It made it give the quiche such a distinctive flavor. I also loved the crust! I will never buy store bought again! I was so surprised that the crust actually came out right. I will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks Tish!
