We love quiche in our house; however, my mother is allergic to onions, so we created a recipe that she can enjoy with us. This is great with a cup of broth on a rainy day.

I submitted this recipe a few years ago. The amount of bacon should really be 1 lb. The amount listed is way to much. It really is quite good. Freezes well too. Read More

Spices were odd. Needs more egg. I also don't understand why they want you to use flour. It was not necesarry and made the bacon weird. I added an egg, used half and half, and put in some onion, slat and pepper- came out much better. Read More

Very very good! I used 2 2.5oz pkgs. of store brand precooked bacon. I used store brand swiss cheese and this was really good but it needed a tad more taste so next time I will use an aged swiss or fontina cheese. Hubby suggested we add cubed potatoes green peppers onion and mushrooms too or other cheeses to change this up and make this again often. Both my husband and I liked this a lot but my teen who is my typically my adventurous eater and rarely turns his nose up at anything didn't care for this at all. Great with a side of hashbrowns and toast. Thanks for this recipe we had a wonderful meal! Read More

I cut the bacon as suggested. In place of the extra bacon I added about a cup of fresh mushrooms sliced. And added one more egg because my pie plate was a little larger than called for. Everyone loved it. Read More

I think this was so tasty! It was my first time making quiche and I followed the recipe pretty closely but I didn't have any swiss cheese! So I substituted some chedder/mozzarella blend and it was great. I did use 3 eggs and a DEEP dish pie crust. It was filled to the brim. Leaked out a little! I'd definitely stick to the 3 eggs! I didn't flour coat the bacon either. Cooked just fine without it. Try this!! It really is delicious! Read More
