    Made this for dinner last night and had it for breakfast too!! It is very good and easy to make. I had a frozen pie crust, made up the bacon and onion as directed, but I didn't have half and half so I just used 2% milk and it came out fine. I did throw in some cheddar and jack that I had in addition to the swiss and also some chopped spinach. It turned out terrific!! I would recommend to anyone.

    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!

    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!!
