This is the first time I have ever made quiche. I have loved it for years but always thought that it was too difficult to make. This recipe has proved to me that is not the case. I did not have any swiss cheese so I used medium cheddar instead. It still tasted great! My mother and I both loved it. I will make it again for sure!
Great quiche! I used Egg Beaters for the eggs and 1% milk. I think next time I will use Canadian Bacon instead of ham to make this a great lower-fat alternative.
This was very easy and delicious, love the swiss cheese. For some reason my local grocery store doesn't sell frozen pie crusts, so I had to roll out frozen flat pastry into a pie dish, which takes a bit longer, but still worth the time. I made it fresh without freezing it, but will definately keep the recipe to use for OAMC. When I find pie shells at another store, I might stock up ;)
