    Time Saver

    Robert Torres from Sabana Grande, PR

    I have prepared this several times. But I've used bacon bits to save time. Have also prepared it with egg substitute to lower calories and fat.

    Secret ingredient

    GENESSA WAITE from EUGENE, OR

    Evaporated milk is great for quiche. I will never use 1/2 and 1/2 again. You may wan to add a tablespoon or two of flour for a firmer consistency. This is a great recipe, the egg/milk base can be used with any cheese and vegetable combination.

  •  Star(s)

    Great - but add extra time

    George from Exton, PA

    This is a great recipe, and great for when I have company. I like cheddar in stead of swiss cheese. However, I've found that it takes about an hour to bake completly

    Top Ten Favorite

    Teresa Kowalczyk from Clinton, MA

    This Quiche recipe was a big hit at my daughter's Shower, not only was I able to make them ahead of time, and freeze but the day of the Shower after defrostng the night before I only had to warm them in the oven. I have given out this recipe numerous times.

    Chrissie Foote from ,

    I made this dish on several occasions for my lunch club and everyone loved it. I also added a few veggies one time and it was still a hit.

    Simple and good

    Meta Sienkiewicz from Greenbelt, MD

    So easy - so tasty. I've made this several times and it is always great. I tried adding an extra egg (as one reviewer suggested) and it made a higher, lighter quiche.

    I served this to my guests for Easter breakfast and got rave reviews. It was so easy and so, so good.

    ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

    Mmelinge Cabiri from SEAFORD, NY

    I just made this recipe for Easter and it was a hit. It came out just right. The only alterations I made to the recipe was putting it in an actual quiche/tart pan--reduce the milk to 1 1/4 c. milk instead of the whole can. It came out just like when we used to make it in French Club

  •  Star(s)

    quick and good!

    andrea blukis from SEATTLE, WA

    this easy to follow recipe is delicious and quick to make - bacon and onion may be cooked ahead of time to even make preparation faster.

    A real crowd pleaser!

    Steve Bailey from Sonoma, CA

    I make this all the time and have experimented with lots of different ingredients. I always add some mushrooms and feta cheese because I like that combinaton. It is not what true Loraine is all about I know but to each his/her own. This recipe is very flexable so have some fun with it.

    Quiche Larraine

    Sherry Hamill from Colorado springs, CO

    I love quiche and could eat it every day! This was simple and quick. I will make this once a week for sure, if not more. Other quiche recipes made me just want to buy ready made but, not this one.

    Great Quiche

    lee layton from CAPE ELIZABETH, ME

    I made 2 quiches with this recipe but added other ingredients, one with breakfast sausage, peppers, cheddar cheese onions & mushrooms and the other with shrimp, imitation crab, monterey jack cheese and mushrooms, both were light and custard like instead of like scrambled eggs.

  •  Star(s)

    Great Quiche

    Iva Bartell from OREGON, IL

    Made this last night for dinner, was quick and very good. My family said you can make this again real soon, like next week. It's a keeper.

    The Perfect Quiche Recipe!!!

    Crystal from Orange, CA

    I used 4 eggs instead of 3 and upped the onions, cheese, and bacon just a bit. I used green onions instead for a more mild flavor. Using 4 eggs will bring the filling to the top. If you like quiche, you will LOVE this recipe. My family and friends loved it. I have been making this quiche for almost a year and it ALWAYS turns out perfect.

    Why-oh-why have I been working SO hard on Quiche a

    Shari Ulbrich from WHITTIER, CA

    Wow!- I was hesitant as historically, my Quiche Lorraine recipe was agonizing, to say the least. This recipe was WONDERFUL! So easy and absolutely delicious. I keep leftover bacon in the freezer and using it in this recipe made the whole process almost as easy as ordinary scrambled eggs! Everyone just MUST try this.

  •  Star(s)

    Very Nice!

    KELLIE FIGUEIREDO from MODESTO, CA

    I made this for Christmas Breakfast and it was quite a hit. I tweaked it a bit by using sausage and carmelized onions and my family thought it was wonderful. I even caught my husband sneaking slices of it later in the day--and he really doesn't care too much for eggs!

  •  Star(s)

    Very good!!

    Sabrina from Kings Park

    Excellent quiche, I made it as an appetizer for Xmas. I feel like I could have doubled it b/c it didn't rise to the top of the crust in the 9 inch pan. However, it was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. If people like Swiss cheese, they will love it. My husband and Father-in-law loved it. The entire thing went!! Will definitely make it again and wouldn't change an ingredient!

    Greater than Mom's

    Deborah Randhan from Akron, OH

    I have done Quiche Lorraine by my Mother's recipe for the last forty years and never knew this could be so good and with the price of half and half or cream or even milk this is great and so much less costly - less costly - who whould ever think that something that costs less would be so very good! I intend to try more recipes using Carnation Evaporated Milk!!

    Terrific quiche recipe, perfect for a busy day and family on the go!

    Successful Experiments

    Lisa Cleath from PASADENA, CA

    I tried a couple variations on this recipe; both were crustless, both had turkey bacon rather than regular, both had fat-free evaporated milk; however, with one I used egg substitute, veggie cheese, and added sauted spinach with the bacon...it's hard to say what happened exactly with that one, but I think there was so much moisture from the spinach that it took at least 10 minutes more to bake. Both tasted great, however, and were very light.

  •  Star(s)

    Great!!!

    This came out wonderfully. I substituted Swiss cheese with Mozzarella and it was still great. My husband really loved it & it was easy to make.

    Perfect Quiche!!

    Debra Lee from FREMONT, CA

    This quiche recipe is perfect and I love the smooth creamy texture. My family loved it! I took some to work to share and they said it was perfect in every way. I can't thank you enough for this recipe. I like to add chopped ham instead of bacon and I also add a half package of chopped spinach (thaw and squeeze out as much liquid as possible). I usually make two quiches at a time--one spinach and ham and one with just spinach.

    Delicious!

    Kristie Douglass from BLOOMINGTON, IL
