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!
FANTASTIC!!!! I tweaked it a wee bit: sauteed onions, mushrooms and spinach. Then added this to the egg mixture. Also used bacon chips - which is soy bacon bits. ABSOLUTELY DIVINE..........
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!
