I still haven't gotten around to making this great-sounding quiche.

Read the recipe again and laughed at this line: "I adapted a recipe I found on Allrecipes.com called Chicken Spinach Quiche, but by the time I got done with it - it bears little resemblance to the original!" That's my friend, Char! She could give Tweaker Geek a run for her money!!

Seriously, this is to die for. I used ham instead of turkey, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly as written. I even found the Idiazabal cheese (love it) and used a serrano pepper for the first time. Great recipe Char. Thanks.

Yum! This quiche was the best! Unlike some of you, I love quiche, but haven't found one that I have liked to make at home....until now. Wow. I think the mayo is the secret ingredient. It tasted like a Marie Callendar's quiche. I substituted two cups of broccoli, five pieces of bacon, green onions, and gruyere cheese. They have a new shredded gruyere and swiss at TJ's. They also have a smoked gouda mixture I used for the base. This will become a staple in our house. I can see its easy to use Char's recipe as a base, and just use what you have in the fridge. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the tip on TJ's shredded gruyere! I am making this on Saturday for breakfast. We are helping a friend move (actually the boys will be doing that, I will be supervising! ) so I thought I had better feed them.

I love quiche but DH really doesn't care for it much (unless it has a lot of bacon and cheese). I'll have to give this a try soon, sounds like a great version for non quiche lovers. Thanks Char!

My DH professes to not like quiche either, Angie, but he loves this one. Like I said upthread way earlier - bake it in a square pan and call it something else, like "Cheesy Bacon Bake" or some such!

A can of drained, diced Ortegas never hurt anything either - just sayin'!

DH loves every kind of pepper, a can of green chilies would certainly be right up his alley. Cheesy Bacon Chili Bake - getting better all the time!

Chantyl, you won't mess it up - use what you have! Parmesan, dry aged Jack, Swiss - it will all taste good!

I think you DO want something with some flavor though, not something like shredded mozzarella. JMHO!

That would work too, in fact I think I used the Trader Joe's Italian preshredded blend in it one time and it was fine.

Don't be skeert, girlfriend, it will be delicious!

Gary, how do these compare to Specialy's mini quiches. I have been searching HIGH AND LOW for a recipe that compares! Yummy stuff!

Thanks for the recipe Chaski! There are not many things that I will eat as leftovers, but this is better the next day. I made a square pan last night, and then cut out a piece each morning for breakfast for DH and I. He called me this morning after he got to work to tell me how delicious it is.
