I have used this tried and true recipe for many years. It is from an old Betty Crocker Cookbook. A few reviewers have mentioned the onions don't cook enough. Please note that the instructions say "minced onions". It is a very small cut. If you don't intend to cut the onions that small, please do sauté them first. I have great results every time I have made this quiche using a ready from the freezer 9-inch pie crust.

This came out beautiful! I used diced ham instead of bacon and half and half instead of whipping cream. The best quiche recipe I've come across. Bakes up nicely and has a great texture. Oh, I did add a little crushed garlic also. Thanks for sharing!

This is my favourite recipe. Almost the same but I mix the swiss with Gruyere equal portions. I did learn while living in Europe the Lorraine which is a provence in France has no cheese so I was told this is really a quiche. Anyway its delicious and thanks for sharing with everyone.
