I added 2 more slices of bacon and chopped ham. Because I added more meat I also added an egg. I topped it with shredded swiss cheese and chopped green onions on top after it was done baking and it was delicious! Read More

I made this last night for a picnic dinner. It was very moist and tasty. Something that should be noted was that the puff pastry had to thaw for 40 minutes so that threw off my timing but it worked out okay. I used turkey bacon and skim milk to cut back on fat. Read More

This was my 1st time making a quiche of any kind! My family LOVED it! What I did different after reading MANY other recipes was I increased the two eggs to three, bacon to 6 pieces instead of 4, I added 1/2 TBS flour to the eggs and milk and added chopped green onion on top. I made two at the same time and increased the final 30 minutes to 40. These were devoured in 5 minutes or less and by extremely picky children (and one grown man as well!) Enjoy!! Read More

This was lovely and rustic looking. I wanted to prepare the puff pastry into a tart-like quiche so I had to adjust the egg/milk mixture to a quarter (when using 1 puff pastry) and eyeballed the cheese but kept everything the same with an addition of green onions. Read More

I know this says its an English style quiche, while the inside ingredients are traditional of an English Quiche Lorraine, I have never eaten one with puff pastry. The usual pastry is a shortcrust or whats know as pie cust here. That being said this is delicious, the only thing I did find was that the mixture was not enough to fill my pan ~ so I did have to use 1 cup of milk and 4 eggs. I did think that the oven was also too hot and in future I will cook this at 350 degrees for the full duration. Ths is a great basic recipe and can be modified to use any ingredients you have too hand. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe. Read More
