How Many Eggs In a Quiche?

How many eggs in a basic quiche recipe. I often use 3 but can I use 2 instead?

I generally use 4-5 eggs and then add enough milk so that it = 1.5 cups of liquid.

That gives me enough custard to cover all of the goodies I put inside of the quiche without having to worry about any spill-over while baking.

2 eggs would be one small quiche. What size Quiche are you making?

I always figure one egg for every half cup of milk or cream and in a large custard one for the pot.
