That recipe sounds really tasty. Haven't made a quiche for ages....

This looks like a good quiche, I really like the veggie ingredients but why 2 deep dish pizza crusts, surely one is enough; and 2 1/2 cups of milk/ half and half is a bit much with 6 eggs, the dairy is over the top. I make my quiche crustless using cheese as the crust or plain cooked rice. I use 1 cup of milk, 4 eggs and 1 cup of cheese. All in all the only saving grace are the veggies and you could put them in any quiche with a lot less crust and a lot less dairy! I would not make this the way the recipe is now, I'd be changing it.

It looked good until I saw the 6 eggs. I have never seen a quiche recipe calling for 6 eggs. The norm is usually 3-4 max.
