it's got cream cheese in it? I'll be right over.

Looks like a great recipe, I will try it. Anytime I can bake something using eggs from my girls, I really enjoy it.

ohhh...I never thought of using cream cheese...I bet it will be sensational with duck eggs.

Looks yummy! Have you tried adding nutmeg? I always put that in mine...I love playing around with ingredients in these quiches; it's my favorite way to eat spinach!
