    . It is a very flat quiche, good for an appetizer but if one plans to have it as main course then it is better to double the amounts  -  25 Jan 2010


    Used different ingredients. I substituted the double cream by cream cheese  -  09 Feb 2010


    I thought this recipe would be bland so I played with it a little. I substituted leeks for onion (which I just happened to have leftover from another dish), added some bacon (again leftover), nutmeg (traditional for quiche), garlic and cayenne to the mix and it turned out fantastic! Oh I also topped the quiche with some thinly sliced tomato before baking.  -  31 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
