Super easy to make and so delicious!

I made my own whole wheat crust from another recipe on Food.com.

I used 6 oz of feta. It doesn't need nearly that much oil (i only eyeballed enough for sauteeing) and added two crushed garlic cloves in with the onions and spinach (i use garlic in everything!). I did use light cottage cheese, regular half and half, but lowered the half and half proportion down to a half cup and added a half cup (plus a little extra) of non-fat greek yogurt. I also used more dill than it called for...not sure exactly how much but probably about 1/4-1/2 tablespoon...but then again, I LOVE DILL! I also added pepper

Plan on making this again very soon!

Yummy! I cut the salt to 1/2 tsp and the oil to 1 Tbsp. Also used fat free half-and-half, light cottage cheese, and goat's milk feta. This was wonderful though it was a little watery after baking (didn't affect the taste though and I just drained off the liquid and it wasn't a problem any more.) Thanks for the recipe!

I have been using this recipe for the past 3 years or so, I am in love with it. I am a vegetarian and this quiche sounded amazing so I tried it and it was delicious. I make this all the time for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Potlucks, anywhere. I love how the cheeses are go well together. My favorite part is the dough, because the eggs and cheeses soak it up so well. The onions give it a kick and I can't believe I found this recipe.
