I have used this as appertizer for small dinner party, and also as side dish for Mexican dinner. It is quite simple to put together, and short baking time. I have not been able to come up with a way to change much of anything about recipe. Perhaps you can....I served cottage cheese and tomato salad, along with spicy squash balls, deep fried. Everything balanced out well. I have also served cucumber & onion & crumbled bacon as side with this spicy quiche.
