  • Reviews

  • “This was a great quiche!We have none left, if that says anything!I didn’t have the bacon, so I used ham instead, and added a bit of green onion. It was so good!Thanks Dawn, for a great recipe!”

  • “Fantastic…just the right amount of nutmeg.I was at a loss for dinner when I came across your recipe.Served it with a wedge of iceberg and a wedge of fresh pineapple.Perfect light evening meal.Thanks.”

  • “I added veggies (tomato, green onion, basil) and also cheddar cheese on top. Easy and yummy. You could also use milk for a lower fat meal. The cream is a bit too thick.”

  • “A great basic recipe for quiche.I substituted sharp cheddar and 1/4 tsp. dry mustard for the Swiss and nutmeg (personal preference) and prepared it in my quiche pan.Starting it at the higher temperature helped make sure the crust was cooked all the way through–great idea Dawn, thanks!”

  • “I’m not certain what happened with two of the prior reviewers, but they couldn’t have possibly have done the same recipe I did…This is a lovely basic recipe that should give anyone a nice starting point for countless variations as well…My first attempt followed the original recipe and was enjoyed muchly…My next attempt added chopped yellow onion, some frozen green peas and I switched out the swiss cheese for a cheddar/monterey jack combo…It was nirvana!…This one goes right into my recurring recipe file along with notes for variations I’d like to attempt in future…Thank you SO much for posting this!”

  • “I really wanted to make one that was fluffy and the cream did it!Simple to add anything you want to it, including changes the spices.Great base recipe or as is!”

  • “I’m not sure what this needs–maybe onions?It’s slightly bland.Sorry Dawn.”

  • “Although this tasted ok, I thought the amount of nutmeg called out in the recipe was too much (over bearing). You could not taste the bacon…it tasted more like pumpkin pie than quiche!”

  • “It was excellent. I used cubed ham instead of bacon and it was eaten in record time!It was easy to make too.”
