    I made this last Thursday night for dinner! Great hit. Will add a little bell pepper and onion next time! Loved it!

    Simple and easy to prepare. Good recipe for adding favorite cheese, maybe some crumbled bacon, asparagus tips, etc.

    I made this with cubed potatoes, ham, onion and one packaged frozen spinach. Topped everything with shredded gruyère cheese. Everyone loved it. Made it again the next week, but made it in muffin tins. Cooled after they came out of oven, then bagged them in freezer bags. Now I have an on the go breakfast treat!

    I bring a breakfast casserole to work whenever we have a “buffet day.” I tried this one last month. No one wants my old recipe. They demanded this one! Easy and delicious. My husband calls it a “keeper.”

    Excellent recipe. Never had a quiche before. I added more ham (1 cup) and about a quarter cup of red onions, red and green bell peppers as an extra bonus. Easy recipe to experiment with to create new tastes.

  • This is a very tasty dish. I made a low cholesterol version by substituting egg beaters for the eggs.
