"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."

"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 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."

"This quiche was incredible! I loved it, it was simple to make, and my dear loving fiance couldn't get enough! The only change I made to the original was that I used a yellow onion vs. green onion only because I have too many onions to jusify buying another type! Fabulous and done in 45 min. Great recipe Colleen! Thanks!"

"If you want a truly light and fluffy quiche try pre-baking your pie crust before you fill it and place the pie pan in a water bath before baking. A quiche is a type of custard and will retain its delicate consistency far better if treated as one."

"For my church's Easter Sunrise potluck I'm making this quiche, but I'm substituting ham for the bacon and cheddar for the swiss cheese. I'll make another one with swiss cheese and asparagus. No matter what you add, quiche is always good. I make several just for my husband and I and we reheat wedges in the microwave on a covered plate for breakfast the next morning and it's even better the second day!"

"Had a bumper crop of green onions so I thought I'd give this quiche a try (LOVE quiche!) even though I was hesitant about the apple juice. Turns out it compliments the bacon nicely! Fussbudget hubby enjoyed it! Who says REAL MEN don't like quiche? I was also tickled pink to see you're from RI! I lived in Warwick all my life, went to Pilgrim High and raised my kids there, living in Gaspee Plateau and Gov. Francis Farms. Miss the yearly parade there and Oh boy, do I miss chowder and clamcakes! Have to drive back from Florida every so often for a bowl of chowder at Iggy's - and a NY System hot dog! Thanks for the great quiche recipe, Colleen from Warwick! :)"

Also, I couldn't find unsweetened applejuice so I used sweetened and it was great. I cooked it a 15min longer because of the added mushrooms. Great recipe and so easy to make!"
