This was delicious but I think I should have used a deep dish pie shell ... I had a large amount of liquid left over! Can anyone confirm? It is not my recipe so I did not want to edit!

I was very pleased with how this turned out. I used fat free half and half and havarti cheese as that was all I had on hand. I added 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder as I didn't have a shallot. The quiche set up nicely when I took it out of the oven. This was delicious and I will make it again.

I agree, this is very tasty and easy to make but there was quite a bit of liquid left over, maybe my dish wasn't deep enough either. Did' waste any, made little quiches in muffin pans, granddaughter loved her special little quiches.
