Questions & Replies

  1. With this creamy zucchini quiche, can you put it all together the night before and cook it the next morning? Thanks.


  1. Mark, you really have a good recipe here. I made this for lunch and it was easy for me to put it together and let it sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before baking so I could get the salad assembled. It was delicious. The next time I make this I am going to use another type cheese. I have been discovering some tasty cheeses at my deli, and I think It would be good with a smoked cheese. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
  2. I had some girlfriends over for lunch and served them your fabulous quiche. You are correct about it being very rich but what a taste extravaganza. I served with salad, homemade rolls and white wine. Not a bad cure for the mid-winter blahs. Going to try it out on my mom. She is a quiche freak and will just love this. Thanks, yooper.


What can I say about myself that hasn't already been mentioned in the police reports? Just kidding! I'm a single guy who loves to cook! Good thing, or I'd starve or go broke eating out! I love to read, horror and mysteries are my favorite. Love music, (except rap) and I'm a huge Green Bay Packer Fan!
