This recipe is fairly simple to make and does not have any really difficult steps, though there are a lot of ingredients.

When I make this in my pie pan, the filling almost completely fills the pan up and makes it very difficult to move to the oven. It will puff up a bit while cooking. The crust is not finished cooking/rising when the filling is added and the egg mixture forms a dome in the middle. I have not had a spilling issue yet and I have made it several times.

Keep that in mind if you wanted to add ingredients to the filling. I usually add extra swiss because my wife absolutely loves cheese. You can add some gruyere cheese for extra flavor.

I have not yet experimented with other solid fillings, but I’m pretty sure that most notable flavor combinations would do well.

This was made from a flat transition from a recipe my mother in law had for the quiche and a biscuit recipe I found online.
