    . 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


    Simple and straightforward recipe that tastes very good. Best served warm rather than hot in my opinion. I agree with other posters that the quantities make a rather flat quiche but I made a smaller pastry case to solve that issue. Will be certainly making this again.  -  03 Feb 2018
