Yummy! I was afraid to try it because of some of the negative reviews, but I had shrimp on hand that needed to be cooked so I had to do it. I'm glad I did. I only had half a cup of sour cream, so that's all I used. I used 5 oz of large shrimp but cut them up first. I also used a cheddar/jack mix and onion powder instead of green onion. After hearing that some thought it was bland, I added a little tabasco, garlic powder, ground mustard, and dried parsley for color. It was so good.

This was not very good. The sour cream gave the quiche a strange tart taste, and it didn't have enough cheese. We also didn't like the consistency.

While the Gruyere cheese makes this quiche really special, it is even better with some Emmental too. Add a little garlic powder to the mix, and you've got an extremely tasty and elegant quiche. I have made them with circles of puff pastry in mini-muffin tins, and they are a wonderful appetizer.

This was one of the best quiches I've ever had!!! It was light and a little fluffy (how quiche should be I think). I made no changes, except I mixed the ingredients together and then poured it into the shell. The Gruyere cheese and the shrimp were a great taste together...what a nice, light meal.

i just made this quiche and it was delicious! I partially pre-baked the crust (about half the cooking time). I added an extra egg, used frozen salad shrimp, cheddar cheese instead of Gruyere, and instead of just a tablespoon of sliced green onion, I sliced up the whole thing. I also used probably closer to a cup of cheese and a little more shrimp than called for. The only thing is the cook time. It took mine about 40 mins or so. Great recipe overall!

Quite good and definitely easy to make. I added a pinch of cayenne pepper for some kick. Just one change: My quiche needed to bake for 45 minutes until it was ready. If it takes longer for yours to bake too, then I'd recommend rotating the quiche once.

This was a great recipe! I made two quiches and my husband preferred this one because of the unique flavors. I have never seen a quiche recipe with sour cream and I think that is the key to the rich taste. The ingredients did not fill my premade pie shell so next time I will increase the servings to 8. Give this one a try, you won't regret it. Simple to make and very different!

This is a great start for a wonderful shrimp quiche. I modified the recipe a bit because I didn't have all of the ingredients on hand. I used a bit more cheese, about a cup and a half of mixed cheeses, asagio, cheddar, colby and monterey jack. Also I cooked the shrimp in butter, soy sauce and tangerine juice to give it some extra flavor. I diced some jalapeno and added it for a bit of a kick. It turned out great! I thought the sour cream was awesome! I will definitely do this again.
