  1. Use of flour in Quiche is NOT proper and takes away from the texture and taste. I liked the use of REAL sour cream though
  2. I did make some changes, so it took me a while to decide if I should rate it, but I will because I owe the thanks for the base to you! I thought I had sour cream, but it had gone bad and I noticed after I had gone to the store, so I used about about 3/8 cup fat free mayo instead (I was worried about this but it was no issue). Because I used mayo I reduced the salt to 3/4 teaspoon. I used lump crab, 1 cup of cheddar (we never eat swiss), a quarter of a small sweet onion (I hate that you have to buy green onion as a small bush), and added about 1/2 bunch of blanched asparagus (for good measure). It was really Really REALLY good. If you substitute with mayo, I would use only 1/2 teaspoon salt. Ours wasn't too salty, but it could have been a little less salty. YUM!
  3. This was incredibly good. I substitued Yogurt for the sour cream and cheddar for the Swiss cheese. A definite make-agian
  4. Good recipe. Very rich. Easy to make. DH and I both liked it.
  5. This was a very tasty quiche. It was creamy and good. Thanks for posting.


  1. A tip for when you go to make the recipe: beat the eggs first in the bowl then use a little bit to brush on the edge of the pie crust to make sure it's shiny and a beautiful golden brown, it only uses a teaspoon or so of egg and it helps make the final product that much more top model.


I love to try new recipes. My husband doesn't like veggies so I am always looking for ways to sneak them in. He is a fisherman and we live at the coast, so we eat a lot of seafood.
