Light and fluffy, this scrumptious quiche is ideal for breakfast or brunch but can also be served at dinnertime. Serve with a clump of chilled grapes or other fresh fruit on the side. —Colleen Belbey, Warwick, Rhode Island

"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."
