    I have been baking this for over an hour and the center is still watery. What gives!??

    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!

    Very good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written and everyone loved it. I use to buy bacon quiches from Market Day and now I can make my own!

    This is fantastic!!!! I made all the bacon the day before with pancakes and then saved it in frig til this morning. I only added about half the bacon and cheese, as it was filling up pie shell with out the egg mixture added. I wasn't able to quite fit all the egg mixture in and almost spilled it putting it into the oven, but all was fine. I liked this recipe as there wasn't any green pepper, mushrooms or onions, which one of my two kids, dislikes one or more of those. I am cutting the leftovers into individual pieces and freezing to enjoy for a quick breakfast or anytime!!! Thanks for sharing Lainey. Made for Photo tag.
