I wanted to do something different and tried this recipe...my first ever quiche. I love quiche, but had never tried to make it myself. My 14 yr old son hated the quiche he had previously tried but loved this - he ate 2 pieces. My 7 yr old ate all of his and asked for more. My husband actually likes quiche but said this was the best he's ever had, I agree. I did an egg wash (egg white + 1 tsp water) in pie crust and baked it for about 10 minutes then cooled and filled - the crust was not at all soggy. Also, house full of guys now that my daughter's gone, I used two pounds of bacon, omitted sausage and used fresh spinach omitting mushrooms. I sauteed onion in bacon drippings and when tender crisp added my fresh spinach (chopped about 3/4 of a 12 oz bag baby spinach) until it was just wilted. Used 6 oz shredded sharp cheddar, 6oz Mexican blend and 4 oz shredded Parmesan (instead of grated). Used heavy cream instead of half & half. I also mixed everything together instead of layering. Used 6 x-lrg eggs + yolk left from egg wash. Once pie crusts were filled I topped with just a little extra of all 3 cheeses and sprinkled on crushed dried rosemary. Cooked for 53 minutes. Just a few tweaks for our own taste, but the basis of this quiche is excellent. Prep time to consumption is well worth the effort, work, wait (about 2 hrs). DELICIOUS, EXCELLENT, WILL MAKE AGAIN. Variations should be easy as long as basics are followed.
