  • Add cheese and mix

  • Take piecrust out of oven and evenly pour quiche mix into the pie crusts
  • Top with Rosemary sprigs
  • Put back in oven and cook for 45minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Let cool at least 30 minutes before serving so the quiche sets and is easy to cut.
  • Enjoy with a tossed green salad or soup
  • The quiche tastes even better the next day!
