Top Review by dogsandwoods
Didn't follow the recipe exactly; here are the deviations: Made two 11" pans; both had a layer of potatoes and a layer of ham; one had a layer of carrots and the other was topped with a layer of spinach. I ate the potato/ham/spinach quiche and loved it. DH ate the potato/ham/carrot quiche and thought that it was okay. (I'm allergic to carrots.) I'd make it again for me! Thank you for posting.

- Divide into 3 equal portions and place a portion into each of the other bowls of spinach, carrot, and potatoes.
- Mix contents of all three bowls well.
- Butter a deep 14x4-inch pan.
- Spoon in potato mixture and bake in 375 degrees F (190 C) for 8 minutes.
- Spoon in the carrot mixture and bake 8 more minutes.
- Now spoon in the spinach mixture and bake 45 minutes or until everything sets.
- Turn off the oven, but leave the quiche in the oven for 5 minutes.
