  1. So little effort for such a yummy dish!! Following the recipe was simple and it turned out just like it was supposed to. I served it with some veggies and it made a great meal.

  2. Beautiful quiche…. Lovely and fluffy. I didn’t have any potato gems this time but used hash browns instead. Was so yummy !!!! Will definitely cook again..

  3. Im cooking this right now. It has been on for over 2 and 1/2 hours and is still raw in the middle. It was ment for dinner but it looks like it will be for breakfast.

  4. Just divine!
    Very simple to follow and quick, which meant more time for me. I served with mixed lettuce and tuna.

  5. Made it first time tonight, mine was very cheesy. Was a big hit with the fussy children, will definitely be making this one again

  6. Absolutely delicious -and so easy to put together.
    I used 1/2 cup light cooking cream instead of milk, the result, a lovely smooth texture.
    Would definitely make this again??

  7. I made one so delicious and I added everything I could. Family loved it. Might try BBQ chicken next time. Hash browns would work too if you don’t have gems

  8. Beautiful, but I added 2 diced onions, a tub of sliced mushrooms and 2 cubed Chicken fillets and 250 of cream. Thanks for the idea.

  9. This was so easy to make and turned out perfectly!! I used a dozen eggs as my slow cooker is really big and just increased the other ingredients. The whole family loved it – including 4 little boys!

    The whole family loved this, it is now on our weekly rotation as requested by the kids. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  11. Made this tonight for the first time, was quick and easy. Myself, partner and 14 month old all loved it. Will be making it again that’s for sure ??

  12. This is a huge hit in my house! I make it a few times a week & portion it out for my 3 boys to eat for brekky.
    I struggle to get Master 12 to eat brekky, but if this is in the fridge he will happily scoff down breakfast!

  13. Easy to make and delicious too the smell through the house was devine, took little time to prep & highly recommend if you are looking for a slow cooker dinner to cook on a high setting & shorter cooking time

    This was my Husbands first attempt at making a slow cooker meal, It turned out great , was so yummy will definitely be making this many more times.

  15. Nice, easy to follow recipe. Quick cooking time and tasted absolutely delish. I recommend this one !!

  16. This recipe was a great discovery—have made it several times and worked out well each time. Love it!!!

  17. Absolutely delicious. Easy easy easy. I used double smoked hickory bacon and added a handful of diced mushrooms. Smells divine whilst cooking and is even better on toast the next day. ?

  18. Chris Cherry ? everyone calls me Nanna which I love ??..l

    Cooked this for dinner last night was absolutely delicious, hubby had it again for breakfast this morning said the best he’s ever had. Thankyou for an easy, so tasty recipe definitely on the menu rotation.?

  19. This recipe sounds great! I’d most likely use hash browns, would I need to defrost them in order to line the sc dish to shape the base of the quiche?

  20. Carol Saunders

    Not only does this taste amazing, I love the fact that it can be cooked in 2.5hrs. .. so if I’m ever time challenged it’s my go to meal. Leftovers great for next days lunch also.

    Don’t know why I haven’t made this sooner???
    Made some changes to the ingredients;
    I used 2 spring onions (scallions)
    Chopped up some sundried tomatoes
    Crumbled about 100gr of feta cheese and used Smokey chipotle grated cheese
    I decided on using 10 eggs as what I had were small and mixed in 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup cooking cream.

    This is a great recipe for a quick and yummy meal. Previously I’ve cooked the potato gems in the oven before putting them in the slow cooker, but not today! Today I used frozen gems & added some spinach & corn kernels to the above recipe ingredients and it was delicious. Teen son commented that it is better than the quiche I buy from the shops. Thanks for this one Jo McKinnon and Paulene Christie

    I made this today in my little 1.5L slow cooker.

    I used 7 Eggs, about 1/2-3/4 cup of milk. I defrosted and added onion, chirozo sausage, bacon, capsicum and pepperoni.

    I filled the bottom of the sc with potato gems, then 2 handfuls pizza cheese, then defrosted meats, then the egg/milk mix. I forgot to add flavouring such a cracked pepper etc.

    Took about an hour and 20mins. Turn the bowl on the 1.5L sc every 15 mins so the egg was brown but not burnt on the outside. The perils of a SC that runs hot.

    I ate a half serve for lunch.

    This is one of my favourite recipies! But I make two layers of the bacon cheese and spring onion and put bbq sauce on each layer then pour the egg mix over it all omg it adds an extra yumminess!
