Line the pie crust (I like graham cracker crust best, gives the quiche a slightly sweet flavor) with the smoked cheese. Other cheeses can be used, but the smoked cheeses, whatever type, gives the quiche a superior flavor over that of plain cheeses.
If you like your vegetables a bit less crunchy, lightly saute the onions, bell peppers, and celery.
Mix all ingredients except meat together and pour into pie shell.
Sprinkle with meat.
Cover with tin foil and bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes for a 9-inch pie shell, or 60 to 75 minutes for a 10-inch pie shell, turning quiche one-half turn halfway through cooking, or until egg in center is set.
Remove tinfoil and broil 2 to 5 minutes until lightly browned on top (this is just for appearance).
