    What a great quiche, which I served with fresh fruit and a blueberry muffin!!! I scaled this back to serve two and used my mini casserole dish. I used a refrigerated pie crust, that was due to be used or trashed, and cut it to fit the dish. I followed the recipe as written except for 2 differences, I used green onion and added red bell pepper. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Potluck Tag Game!!

    I did have some difficulty with this initially, but once I put it back in the oven for 10 additional minutes on 350 with foil covering, it turned out. The problem was that it had too much liquid. I couldn't get the full amount poured into the pie crust and had about 1/4 cup left over. I used shredded cheddar and shredded swiss for my cheese's of choice and also bacon along with some sliced up smoky links. It does have great flavor and actually any type of meat or cheese's would work fine. Thanks Lainey!~ Made for Phototag.
