Reviews for Bacon Swiss Quiche
"Delicious, quick and easy, what could be better! I made everything up in the morning, covered it with foil and then baked it that evening. That worked out fine and we can't wait to have the leftovers for breakfast. I was really intrigued by the little bit of apple juice and I really think that added a lot to the flavor of the quiche."
"I never made a quiche before this. I thought it would be hard but it was actually super easy. Next time I might try breakfast sausage or ham with it."
"Tried this. It was light and fluffy with good flavor. It needs to cook longer than 45 minutes. My bacon sank to the bottom of the crust, not sure why as I even stirred the liquid to disperse while in the crust. Next time I will try to crumble the bacon even smaller and see if that helps."
"This morning I made this quiche - First time ever making a quiche (and eating one too!)...it was delish! Both my husband and I ate until we couldn't eat any more :) I can't wait to try others!"
"Have to make this... by the way to the comment below... who the heck ever says "too much bacon?!?!?!" there's never too much bacon!"
"Excellent recipe..I omitted the onions a s lightened it up a bit wwith half milk half cream."
"Pretty good, though I thought it had a bit too much bacon"
"This was oh-so-good. I served it for dinner. Love all of the yummy Swiss cheese. Mine was still a little underdone when I checked it at the end of suggested cooking time but I raised the temperature 5 degrees and cooked for 5 more minutes and it turned out perfect. I ate a leftover piece for breakfast this morning and it was just as good and did not get soggy."
"Love this recipe! The girls at work request this at every opportunity for a gathering or special breakfast!"
