This recipe is from recipelion.com/Savory-Pies/QUICHE, but because it had the exact same title as another recipe I had pinched, the browser app would not pinch this one. Consequently, I have transcribed it here.

  2. Place cheese in crust. Add one or more of the fillings (about 1 - 1 1/2 cups filling(s) total).
  3. Mix eggs, both kinds of cream, and spices. Pour gently on top of cheese and filling(s).
  4. Bake at 375 F (350 for glass pan) for 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
