    This recipe is fabulous! I toyed with it a little bit based on what other reviewers had to say, and it came out perfect. I sauteed fresh spinach with the onions, as well as with minced garlic and sundried tomatoes in butter, and I used fresh plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise. I also used a combination of cheddar cheese and feta cheese, which was good for the texture of the quiche. And, because everyone seemed to stress this, I used an extra egg. I also definitely used some salt Anyway, this is a great recipe, and it even yielded two quiches, which were both gone almost instantaneously! Wonderful.  -  23 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Super! I used a deep dish crust and added an extra egg. I filled my quiche with every veggie I had in the fridge: onion, red peppers, chopped broccoli, garlic. Saute over medium heat until nearly soft. Instead of frozen spinach, I layered fresh on the bottom of my pie shell, spooned sauteed veggies on top, layered with cheese - I added feta as well as cheddar, and top with egg mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes covered with foil, remove foil and bake another 10-15 minutes. Perfect!  -  23 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was amazing! Based on other reviews I cut the mayo back to 1/3 cup, left the milk at 1/2 cup and added an egg (to total 5). Also added 1/2 tsp of salt to the egg mixture, and layered the spinach as well as some chopped sundried tomatoes with cheddar AND feta cheese. Instead of squeezing the spinach dry, I thawed it in a skillet and sauted it with onions and a few frozen diced green peppers I had on hand. I used a deep dish pie crust and it filled it perfectly. I tried 3 new breakfast recipes for a brunch for 20 and this was by far the best!!!  -  30 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
