I love this recipe. Quiche is a favourite of mine, but I never make it. With my thighs,I just can't justify eating the crust. No crust, no worry! I skipped the bacon, added some diced red peppers, and went with the part skim mozarella. I also added an additional teaspoon of hot sauce. Delicious, and easy, too.
