    WI Cheesehead's Note:

    I got this from the Low Sodium Cooking newsletter. This tastes best with fresh garden tomatoes. A great recipe to use up some of the summer garden produce. I used leeks and cheddar cheese because I had those on hand and it still tasted wonderful! You could add a baked crust if you want to, but it's not necessary.

      This was Awesome!!! I made a few mods. We are doing low carb so fat is not an issue. Added a healthy amount of bacon. Cooked the onion ( and about an equal amount of mushrooms ) in the bacon grease. Probably used 1.5 to 2 cups of swiss. Put the bacon in on top of the onions/mushrooms. Sliced the tomato pretty thick and 8 slices fits perfectly into the pie pan I used with one in the middle and the rest around it. As I used a bit more ingredient I used 4 eggs and used heavy whipping cream instead of skim milk ( Gotta love a diet that calls for bacon and heavy whipping cream ). This made a pretty think quiche so I cooked it as described but added an extra 5 minutes over the 20 minutes at 350. Came out fantastic.

      Have to admit that I didn't do the low-fat version of this recipe: my (rural) supermarket doesn't carry low-fat Swiss cheese at all, plus they don't carry small quantities of non-fat milk, so I had to go with !-1/2%. However, did use our garden tomatoes and fresh basil! It took a little longer than 20 minutes for the top to brown up; however, it was quite tasty! Looking forward to left-overs as a side dish tomorrow.

      I added an extra egg and served it up on meatless Monday with a salad. It's a keeper for sure, thanks!
