I agree with others, make sure you pre-bake the crust or it gets soggy. Otherwise, this recipe was great! Instead of flour, I used baking powder 'cause it fluffs up the eggs more, and that's the way I like 'em.

Excellent versatile recipe! I made mine with 1% milk, 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese, 1 cup of pepper jack cheese and 2 cups raw broccoli florets. I spiced it up a bit with paprika and red pepper flakes. The texture of the quiche was beautiful while the broccoli retained a bit of crunchiness. I enjoyed the contrast in textures. I baked the crust alone while I prepping the other ingredients as suggested by other reviewers. Definitively a keeper.

Nice tasting quiche. I did cut the cheddar down to 1 cup which worked well. My add ins were bacon, onion and green pepper. Made my own crust from this site and it was fab.
