Recipe by Crazycook in PA
This quiche has three types of cheese in it making it rich and custardy. It is very versatile. Any kind of meat, vegetable or herb can be added. I like it with spinach or asparagus. I've even fixed it with just fresh basil in it.

I agree with kittycatmom. The oven's temperature was too high at 400 degrees. After I read kittycatmom's review, I checked my quiche and the edges were already brown after 10 minutes, so, I lowed the heat to 350 degrees and placed foil over the edges. I made my quiche with ham and mushrooms also, and used cheddar and muenster cheeses (since those are the cheeses I had in the fridge). The quiche is delicious. I, too, thank Crazycook for posting this recipe.
