    I used this recipe as a base for Easter lunch. I used the bacon, onions, cheese, spices and wet ingredients as directed. I then added a package of baby portobello mushrooms, red bell pepper and a package of fresh spinach. I sautéed the olive oil, onions, chopped bell pepper and added the spinach in portions...adding more as the spinach cooked down. I drained the vegetables after cooking in a colander. Then added them to a uncooked store bought pie crust. It took about 10 minutes longer to bake, but it turned out wonderfully and everyone loved it. I will definitely make this again!

    It's delicious! So easy to make. I added some green peppers to have more veggies and followed the rest of the recipe. Also used a frozen crust from the supermarket. It turned out amazing. So delicious as a snack at night with a glass of wine or with a big salad as a lunch meal. Also very quick and easy to make. Will repeat :-)

    I modified mine with vegetarian sausage and an almond flour crust. Egg filling cook time was accurate, the texture of the quiche was pleasing.

    Was good but I would add one more whole egg. Was a little thin.

    Excellent! I removed the bacon and added about 3 tbsp of butter to the onion & garlic I pan fried, to replace the yummy fat. Turned out amazing!

    This turned out beautiful and delicious! A couple of things... I didn’t follow their directions on the pie crust. I cooked the refrigerated store bought crust for about 10 minutes, then filled with the rest of the ingredients. Also... 12 oz of bacon is a lot!! My entire bag of precooked bacon (from sam’s!!) is 9.5 oz and has approximately 72 slices. So I just used 16 slices and it worked great. Will definitely be making again! Also makes great leftovers
