    thomas trainer's Note:

    I modified Quiche Lorraine by adding spinach and using lower fat items like buttermilk and light cream. Yes real men do eat quiche, and they make it as well. You can use this as a main course for breakfast or cut into small squares as an hors d'oeuvres. You can serve it cold or warm. Quiche is the ultimate food. You can also substitute whatever vegetables you have around for the bacon and spinach.

      I gave this recipe to my mother as she and my dad are on the Atkin's diet and I figured that they could make these quiches crustless for something that would be quick and easy to snack on. I haven't tried any but my mother says they're really good- a little salty because of the bacon, so perhaps we should have added a little less- but a great food for busy people on Atkin's!

      This recipe made an excellent quiche! I substituted the frozen spinach for a handful of fresh (then sauteed) spinach and a sliced zucchini, and it was delicious.
