    If you use a premade pastry shell this seafood quiche is extremely simple to make using crab and Gruyere or Swiss cheese. Tangy and lovely!

    Used different ingredients. Super recipe! I used no pastry and made the following basic changes: no mayo - used light & plain yoghurt instead, dash of salt & pepper, & 1 tsp. hot sauce. It was wonderful! I have also doubled the recipe, using no pastry & baked it for approx. 70-75 minutes. Cut into squares & served at a brunch! This recipe freezes so well, too!  -  21 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. This was a very good quiche! Like others, I added an extra egg, 2 cloves of garlic, salt, pepper and omitted the pastry. Halfway through baking, I also added enough cheese to cover the top. This created a cheesy "crust" for the top of the quiche.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Took shortcuts. This was delicious as a no-pastry quiche. I just poured the filling into 4 greased individual dishes. Easy and so good!  -  21 Jul 2008
