This is a great recipe. I recommend adding frozen spinach and maybe crumbled sausage. The last 30-40 minutes, watch closely to get it perfect. 40 minutes is sometimes a little too much. But the author nailed the rest of ingredients. Thanks, my guests ask for it every time

My husband and I decided to have a "homemade" Valentine's Day this year and we chose this quiche as our main course for dinner. The only changes I made were to use half the Monterrey jack and half shredded Gruyere. I used a frozen "deep dish" pie crust after reading the reviews of how much this recipe made and it was perfect. I was blown away when all the egg mixture fit into the cheese filled crust. It was awesome! The cheeses and bacon to me, were the life of the party! :) Thanks for the recipe Lainey!

Yum. I didn't have some ingredients, so I changed it a bit, using your basic measurements. I didn't have bacon, so I used a 12 oz (Jimmy Dean's Reduced Fat) pork ground sausage. I browned that with about a 1/2 cup onion and added that to the pie shell (which I forgot to prebake, but it was fine). I used 4 eggs and 1/2 cup half and half because I thought that the sausage would be more bulky than the prescribed bacon, but it was fine - I probably could have used 6. Thanks!
