Cook's Notes

To make sure the vegetables are distributed evenly, spread them in the crust before pouring in the egg mixture.

    Just lovely...only difference I made was using thickened I was unsure of half & half (don’t use that term in Australia) Only complaint is the ad comes into the printed recipe & one has no way to remove same.

    It's nearly impossible to find gruyere cheese.. so I use whatever I have on hand.. This has been my go-to recipe for years.. One adjustment I have made is that I put the salt, pepper AND nutmeg in with the vegetables.. if I add it to the eggs, it seems to "clump together".

    I made this quiche last night and it was delicious. The crust was still doughy in the center of the pie and I'm asking for someone to respond how to ensure that the crust will be cooked all the way across the bottom. Otherwise it was excellent flavor and easy to make.

      I set a baking sheet in the oven to preheat and then when I’m ready to bake my quiche I set it on the sheet and the bottom seems to brown and even crisper little

    This will be the first quiche I've tried making. It would be wonderful if someone clarified if I should bake the pie crust before adding the filling. The instructions are a little confusing - "place pie crust on rimmed baking sheet" - wouldn't it have to be baked first to be firm enough to hold the ingredients? If so, at what temperature? Thank you! :)

      You wont have to bake the crust first. When it says to place it on a rimmed baking sheet it is asking for you to place the 9" pie dish (with raw crust) and not just the pie crust on the sheet. This is just for the case when the liquid spills over the crust and then ends up on the baking sheet and not in your oven. You don't 'need' the baking sheet but you will probably want to use one for any spill over.

    This was just delicious at our Easter Brunch. I liked the chopped asparagus so you had some in every bite.

    I plan on making this for Easter brunch, I copied the ingredients and purchased them, then I watched the video, ingredients said 1 leek, video said 2 leeks. I will just be using one, and the lb, maybe more of asparagus. Writers should be more careful, thank you.

    This looks delicious. Does Martha's Favorite Pie Crust have to be pre-baked before the filling is added? If so, for how long?

    The ingredients makes too much for a store bought 9 in pie pan, be prepared to make two quiches. I made it once using my own pie crust and a deep dish 9 in. and it was wonderful and so were the two I just made. The Gruyere with the Leeks an Asparagus make a perfect combination. Even tho I added the nutmeg no one could tell it was there. This is a keeper recipe but I'm surprise to see only 3 stars. Five star in my opinion, it's a no fail recipe.
