Ok, but needs flavor

I made this for the first time last night and it was ok, but will make several changes next time. The potato crust did nothing for it so next time will omit. I found it to be flavorless overall. I used egg whites instead of substitute and will probably do a 1/2 to half ratio next time - 1/2 whites 1/2 whole egg - to get more flavor. I will probably also use a few tablespoons of bacon pieces instead of the ham, less sour cream, and add some garlic & herb salt substitute.

This sounds good, but I don't

This sounds good, but I don't think it's really healthy with the low fat sour cream, egg beater and pre cooked hash browns from the grocery store. Fresh eggs, full fat sour cream and hash browns you've made yourself . That's way healthier. Also skip the canola oil as it is most likely GMO's. Go for coconut oil. Much healthier.

A bust in our house

Unfortunately, this was a bust in our house. I followed the recipe exactly. I thought it was ok (not great, just ok) but my husband and 9 year old daughter took one bite each and opted not to eat the rest of their serving. My husband is fairly picky and I wasn't surprised when he didn't care for it. My daughter is much more adventurous and LOVES traditional quiche. She did say she might like it more if it had spinach in it instead of broccoli.

easy to make, healthy
Great flavors, strange crust

My family loves quiche. This is the first attempt at one w/ a potato crust. The crust seemed to be more chewy than crunchy once everything was baked up. The flavors of the filling are great though. Will try again, just tweak the crust a bit or omit altogether.

Flavors are great
My husband loved it

Made this tonight for my husband who loves quiche, and he said he like it better than the full fat version. However, the potato crust was flimsy and did not hold up well. I will try cooking it longer next time. Recipe needs a little salt, but not much.

Great taste, easy to prepare
