Easy to make, was just as good on the other days eating it. Made 8 servings instead of 6 servings. Keeps well in the frig up to 4 days.

It was really good! First time making quiche even though I didn't use the thyme and different cheeses. Substituted regular shredded cheddar cheese. May try this recipe as is next time. Did take 60 mins to cook though.

The taste did not justify how unhealthy this recipe was. It was good but not great.

Very good, but it took 90 minutes in the oven to cook through.
