"This quiche is so full of goodness it can be dinner! Equally good at a brunch. This recipe is fabulous to use up those bits of veggies that I always seem to be accumulating.....anyone else have that problem? The cream cheese crust is a bonus! From Spice and Spirit cookbook. Chill time for pastry isn't included in the prep time, since you can do this while making the rest of the recipe."

"Very tasty ~ very easy crust! I substituted chopped broccoli florets for the green pepper, used smoked paprika, and mozzarella cheese, but otherwise made the recipe as written. Served this quiche with a fresh peach/Gorgonzola salad. Tagged for Fall Photo Tag, 2012."
"There were 4 of us for breakfast the day I made this quiche, & except for omitting the mushrooms, I went right down the list of ingredients! Very, very flavorful & satisfying! Another time I might even add a few more veggies just 'cause I'd want to! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar recipe tag]"
"This was a scrumptious dinner for us. I've never made a crust before, but this turned out well and it was tasty to boot. I was wondering if you could taste the cream cheese in the crust, so I took a bite of crust by itself. You can taste the cream cheese and it made me want more. I could see using this as a side dish or as an appetizer. Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2013 Cookbook Tag."
"Wonderful quiche, DH flip-flopped from his initial apprehension and got seconds and thirds! The crust was very easy and delicious for a pastry-challenged chef like me. I could not find my 10" pie plate/flan plate, so I used a 9" pie plate, using all the crust, all the cheese, all the veggies. My milk had spoiled so I used half and half, and mixed it with the 3 eggs. While pouring over the other ingredients, I stopped when the level neared the top; I had over 1/2 cup of liquid to discard. The end result was a "solid" rather than "creamy" quiche, which turned DH into this recipe's biggest cheerleader. The flavors were incredible! Next time I might try it with Smoked Applewood Swiss cheese because we love that flavor. This goes into my "Best of 2013" and "A1 Rotation" cookbooks! Made for Please Review My Recipe."
