This sounds like a great weekend recipe. During the week I don't have time for something like this, but it sounds like a great Saturday morning recipe.

Feb 13, 2014 Test Kitchen say CAN BE FROZEN Mar 10, 2016 TK says "We do not recommend this recipe for freezing,. . . " ???? Which is it, please ? Thank You.

Hi there! We do not recommend this recipe for freezing, because the crust and spinach will become watery. While the Test Kitchen has not tried it before, we believe that you can make this recipe in muffin tins. We recommend trying our recipe for Fiesta Breakfast Cups. Here is the link http//www.everydaydiabeticrecipes.com/Eggs/Fiesta- == Breakfast-Cups ) Enjoy!

is this recipe good for freezing? how can i make this for 2?

For those of us who don't care for egg substitutes will you please tell us how many real eggs are in 1 cup?

Hi there! We use egg substitute in many of our diabetic-friendly recipes in order to cut back on some of the fat. However, if you prefer to use whole eggs, the substitution is as follows: 1 egg equals 1/4 cup of egg substitute. For this recipe you would need 3 eggs. Enjoy!

Can this be made with fresh spinach?

Hi Durant! Great question! Yes, this recipe can be made with fresh spinach, but it would have to be sauted first for a minute, so it will be wilted when added to the recipe. Enjoy!

Can it be frozen. There are just the two of us.

To make half this recipe, how long should I bake it?

The Test Kitchen doesn't recommend making half of this recipe. If you were to make only half of it, the quiche would be very thin with a disproportionate amount of crust.
