This is the best basis quiche recipe I've tried and I've tried many. It is very favorfull. My 5-year-old triplets love it.

Very simple and very good. I did use all mozzerella cheese rather than the speciality cheese. It got raves from my family and friends.

easy, simple and direct, add what ever you like and this turns out great every time to say nothing about different each time since this is a basic recipe and I can add any left over I have.
