This has become a regular at our house. It is so quick to put together and can be made ahead easily and just warmed up. I too use mostly whole eggs and just yesterday made a big change since asparagus was fresh in my supermarket so I subbed it for the spinach - just sauteed the chopped asparagus with the onions. I think this is such a versatile recipe - use what is fresh in your market.
I've been making this for a few years now - we love it. I've made it as recipe reads and have also changed sometimes - different cheeses, whole eggs (4) - depends on what I have on hand. It is always great.
Easy to make, I do not "shred" the cheese, just cut from the block and line the bottom of the pie plate.
The crust comes out perfect everytime and I use either the 50% or 75% and it's hard to event tell the difference. Also add fresh herbs from the garden if I have them.
I saw this recipe in a magazine and tore it out. My family really enjoyed it. I recently loaned the copy to one of my daughters and she lost it. I spent three nights on the computer looking for it. Thank you for a wonderful dish. I took it to work this week and had to print off four copies of it for my co-workers. Keep up the good work!!
I took Mark's suggestion here and just put the slices on the bottom, which worked great. I also used the 75% instead of 50%. It was excellent! I'll definitely make this one again!
