This came out dry. Neither of us cared for the potatoes in this. I made the recipe as directed except for adding an extra egg. In spite of this the dish was not eggy enough. Didn't really tase like a quiche.
I love meals with quick prep times. I added extra sun dried tomatoes, since that is a family favorite. perfect meal.
Awesome recipe - a great delicious and quick dinner!!!
