This is my "go to" recipe for quiche. It's SO delicious and a real crowd pleaser. It's also easy to make substitutions and I love that! It does often make more than one quiche, but I consider that a "win"!

I never follow the recipe exactly. I make it with whatever vegetables are in season, I increase the amount of pepper and add a little paprika or cayenne, and I usually make it without the crust.My only complaint is that it always takes a minimum of an hour to bake, even if I up the temperature to 350°F. That's more likely a problem with our oven (I have a thermometer in the oven; I don't rely on the oven's thermostat.) That just means I know I need to plan on in taking 60-75 minutes to bake.

Pretty sure there is no way all those ingredients are going to fit into one 9" pie. o_0
