    This was a hit! The taste is so good! My kids (7&9yrs) really ate ALL and asked for 2nds! I used fresh spinach from my garden and added 2 large leaves of chard also from my garden. Also, I cooked it for 5 more minutes bc the 1st time it looked soggie in the middle, maybe it was my oven! Enjoy!

    I usually do not like quiche, but one of my friends made this and I loved it. I've made it several times since w/ a few modifications to make it a little healthier and adjust to our taste. I use 5 eggs, slightly more black pepper, not quite the whole package of leek soup mix (cut out about 2 T), fat free half-and-half and 7-9 pieces of center cut reduced fat/reduced sodium bacon. I use 2 percent cheese for both mozzarella and sharp cheddar and add just a little more than in the recipe. If I use frozen cut leaf spinach instead of chopped (depending what I have in my freezer), I cut back a little to about 8 oz. I use a refrigerated pie crust roll and bake it for about 8 min before adding the quiche mix. This is now one of my go-to brunch recipes and it has been a bit hit.

    great recipe. it's a fave at our house. i use fresh spinach and chop it up in the food processor. both kids love it. my 8-year-old son is very picky--broccoli is the only green vegetable he eats, but he asks for the spinach quiche all the time!

    Big hit, kids are not fans though. Maybe make them eggs instead.

    Easy and delicious. Omitted the leek soup (don't think this is available anymore) and used fresh chopped spinach, 2 chopped green onions and some season salt. Baked in a 10 inch quiche pan, came out perfect.
