I enjoy preparing hearty country breakfasts for the guests at my bed-and-breakfast. This fluffy golden pie, which has lots of cheese and bacon, is a most satisfying entree.—Mark Clark, Twin Mountain, New Hampshire

"I tested this recipe on 10 guests, aging from 2 years old to 70, and everyone agreed it was fabulous. I used 1 1/2 cups of non-fat organic milk instead of heavy cream, and I used sauteed onions. Excellent. Then I got braver and tried it with keilbasa and broccoli added - more great flavors. I had to use jack cheese and add green salsa to the last quiche I made, because I ran out of pepperjack. It worked GREAT. If you love quiche, you will LOVE this great recipe. I left meat out on one completely, and it was very well received also. My husband, who doesn't like the same meal two days in a row ,ate it until it was completely gone."
