I made this for a "breakfast for dinner" themed dinner party and it went over very well!! I used only ham, did not use a crust, used gruyere, sharp cheddar and fresh parmesan cheeses. Everyone loved it - I will definitely make it again. I did not layer as the reciped suggested. I just mixed everything together and it turned out great!
This is really good quiche! For some reason, couldn't get this recipe to convert to metric (probably me), so I popped over to www.Allrecipes.Com and used those measurements. I suggest baking the pie shells for about five minutes before adding the filling. Also, for me, this filled more than 2 deep-dish pie pans (i used three). The extra quiche (you will probably eat the first two pretty quick), freezes pretty well. The bottom of the thawed quiche got a little watery, but it wasn't a major issue. Can be made veggie with no problem, just add whatever veggies you like instead of meat. Also, can use different cheeses, according to taste. I like to use some swiss, in place of the cheddar. A very versatile recipe!
I made these for a baby shower brunch a few years ago and had forgotten to rate it, this recipe is an often used one in my home and DD's also. It is really great, easy and yummy!
I make this ALL the time for the Holiday's or whenever my "crew" comes home from Chicago or Kalamazoo !! It is WONDERFUL, and please do as Clark says, make them both , you will be glad you did. They freeze well and I am always asked for this recipe whenever I make it for someone other than my family who know where to go for this excellent quiche...Mom's house.pollyw
