Delicious quiche! I didn't use a frozen crust, but did use a ready-made one. I also made this a bit "quicker" by using pre-cooked crumbled bacon. I also added 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg, because it is a flavor I like in quiche. Thanks for a quick, tasty dinner!

Good simple to fix quiche. Made my own pie crust and cooked the bacon in the oven. Next time I may use green onions rather than sautéed onion. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Wonderful quiche!! I made 1/3 of the recipe and used a recipe from my "Small Batch Baking" cookbook for the pie crust which made one mini pie/quiche to serve two. I served it with some fresh fruit and blueberry muffins, yummy brunch!! Made for your win in the football pool game, congrats again!!
