  9. Arrange feta over top (it will sink a bit).
  10. Bake about 35 minutes or until egg mixture is just set in centre.
  11. Remove from the oven and let stand for 15 minutes.
  12. cut into wedges and serve stand-alone or with a fresh salad
Notes
For best results and to prevent quiche from being watery, use lite milk. Bread crumbs are sprinkled on dish, for easier removal of quiche wedges

Let the kids decide the vegetables and cheese – just keep the milk and egg proportion the same.

Try thin slivers of sun-dried tomatoes and dill instead of roasted red capsicums and spinach.
