Bergy, thank you so much! I was looking for one that did not use too much flour or Bisquick (no offense to the Bisquick company!) I wondered if the bread crumbs would stick as they should...worked out perfectly. The romano cheese worked very well, as did the touch of nutmeg. I may add a bit of stronger cheese next time, but that may mess it up, as it was wonderful the way it was. Thank you so much...I had a semi-healthy lunch for three days (It does re-heat very well)

Great quiche recipe! I added about a 1/2 cup more bread crumbs and 1/4 cup of feta cheese. Wonderful!
