    I don't want to rate this because it's possible that it's just not my kind of thing. It wasn't really a quiche per se, more like a salmon mousse pie. My husband liked it. I will say two things. The cornflakes were really heavy and oily. I would suggest either using less butter or just using a premade crust. The other thing is that I would recommend stirring the salmon in, not using the mixer as the recipe suggests. I did that and the filling all looked pink, which I didn't think was very appealing. I think if you stirred it in and it was in chunks it would be fine for color.

    This not only looks wonderful it tastes wonderful too! I placed a piece of foil lightly on top half way through the baking time to prevent it from getting too brown I am not taking off a star but I did find that it needed a bit of pep - that is because I like spicy so I served it with Thai chili sauce and that made it perfect. A definite do again recipe. I had it for dinner with steamed green beans and new carrots - A lovely light meal

    I didn't make the crust. I pored it into a ready made crust. And I didn't have any cottage cheese. I loved it. Quiche is so simple and quick. And if your watching you carbs it's good to.

    This quiche was a big hit at a luncheon that I gave. Everyone asked for the recipe. It is simple and delicious.


I'm a Midwesterner, turned Northwesterner for 30 years and finally a Southwesterner. I retired in 1995 and have had time to enjoy, even more, the things I love, like cooking and entertaining special people in our home--family and good friends. Fortunately, my husband enjoys cooking too (one pot meals), so he relieves me a few times a month.
