This is an excellent basic recipe for quiche BUT for us it is just a tad too rich without quite enough protein, so I always double the eggs and sometimes substitute part half and half or milk for some of the cream. I have made this with many different cheeses and additions. But I always decrease the basil by 1/2, substitute savory for the oregano decreasing it a bit, and add a dash or two of nutmeg. I personally like it with gruyere, spinach and a bit of good ham. My kids like it best with cheddar, spinach and ham or bacon. My husband likes it mediterranean style with artichokes, spinach and feta. I buy pillsbury already made piecrust and cut out smaller circles to fit our muffin pan. Then I put the toppings (different for everyone) in each cup and pour the egg mixture over all. Then everyone gets a quiche they like. (oh and if you add the spinach make sure you precook it and squeeze most of the moisture out of it or you'll get a mess.)


This was quick, easy, and delicious for my first quiche! I didn't have any heavy cream, so I used 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of milk. Also, my boyfriend hates onions, so I only used 1/2 the amount of onions, and it was still plenty!


I won't keep looking for quiche recipes, this one is it for me! Made it for Mother's Day brunch and it was a huge hit. I did make a few changes though. First, I fried up about 6 slices of bacon crisp. I then sauteed the diced onion in 1-2 tbsp. of the bacon grease. I also omitted the basil and oregano because I don't like them and the other reviews stating that they were a little overpowering. The rest I followed exactly. It was delicious! UPDATE: I've made this several times now, and it's always a huge hit. I no longer make it with the mozzarella, I just use all cheddar.
