This is good. Had it for supper and breakfast this a.m. Texture is more custardy than a regular quiche. I used free range eggs which brought out more color. Very pretty dish. I wonder if this could be made into little appetizer quiches. Read More

I substituted skim milk for the cream. Shredded zucchini did not put in blender. Too lazy to cook bacon so left that out. Cooked a bit quicker in my convection oven and it tastes great. Read More

OMG!!! My family and I just had this and it is fantastic!!! I used real bacon for the bacon bits(I assume that's what I was supposed to do. I didn't have heavy cream so I used my husband's light coffee cream and backed it an extra 15 minutes and it turned-out fantastic! Thank-you so much for this recipe:) Read More

My husband and my sister like this. I'm not a fan though I did think it was better with Tobasco. It's nutritious and filling so I guess it'll work since the rest of the family thinks it is also delicious. Read More
