Made this for Faceless Frenzy July 2012. This has great flavor but made with 8 eggs and no milk or cream makes it is rather dense. I would use 4 or 5 eggs and about a cup of half and half or cream. This is perfect for a summer brunch.
I loved this recipe! I made this yesterday and last week for my family, as I just had an urge to make a quiche (the first time was a trial round). Because I couldn't get hold of any basil or mozzarella, I instead used oregano (apparently a good basil substitute!) and parmesan. I took one of the reviews into consideration, and added lite cream to the 8 eggs for a fluffier, lighter texture. I made my own pastry and also added diced button mushrooms the second time - it turned out perfectly! The caramelized onions with the added herbs and tomatoes created such a great, heartwarming flavour, and the addition of mushrooms added just a little bit more texture to the filling. I will definitely make this again! 5 stars!
A very tasty quiche- the caramelized onions are so good in this! I only had 6 eggs, so I added in 1/2 cup of milk.
This was fantastic! I wouldn't change a thing and I couldn't stop eating it! I used about 3/4 of a 2 cup bag of shredded mozzarella and 5 big leaves of basil. I think the only thing I may do next time (if I have more time) is make homemade pastry because it is so much better than store-bought!
This turned out great. I did not have fresh basil or fresh mozzarella so I used dried basil, and shredded mozzarella. I only had 6 eggs so I added 1/2 cup of milk. I also added 10oz of frozen spinach (thawed and drained)Everyone raved about how yummy it was.
Very easy and tastes GREAT! Didn't have a pie pan so I used a Corning Ware dish. We eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I never have fresh tomatoes on hand so I use canned diced tomatoes.
This quiche is WONDERFUL. I always make more classic quiches (broccoli & cheddar, ham & swiss), but had all the caprese ingredients on hand, so decided to give it a try. We all loved it! I will definitely make this again. (Note: I am really just reviewing the flavours added, since I used my own quiche base (half & half, eggs, milk).
This was delicious! I omitted the onions because my boyfriend doesn't like them, but I'm sure they would be very good in this recipe. I also added a bit of parmesan cheese...maybe about an ounce or two. It was easy to make and very tasty!
