My father made this while I was growing up on the holidays for family who didn't like turkey or ham. It's become a staple in my holiday dinners as well. I have never served it to someone who didn't love it and beg for the family recipe after. We always make two and freeze one for later! It is excellent paired with a side of grilled asparagus.

Love the idea of the recipe, but there are a couple of suggestions I would make. First, the cheddar is overwhelming, and this is coming from a gal who LOVES cheddar! I will mix up the cheeses next time. Some Monterey Jack to mix in maybe, to give a bit of heat. Second, I will be cooking the quiche much longer next time. I left it in 45 minutes, and it was a beautiful golden brown on top and the toothpick came out clean, but then... it was SO runny. Not like a quiche at all. Next time, I will add some flour to the mix, I think, and cook it at a lower temp for an hour+. Still-- a great idea for a fish dinner that isn't boring, and remarkably easy and frugal to put together! I never thought I would say that salmon quiche would be a go-to meal for busy nights, but once I tweak this a tad I am betting it will.

I made this without the crust because we have a family member who can't eat wheat. It turned out great!

Husband coming home, kids threatening to wake from their naps, and I having no idea what to cook for dinner. This recipe to the rescue! No changes made. It is very easy and quick to make. My husband called it phenomenal and said, "it brings energy to a very tired body at the end of the day." I matched it with "Never Fail Pie Crust II" half recipe. This is a keeper. Thank you!
