Reviews for Canadian Bacon Onion Quiche
"hands down the tastiest quiche I have ever had! Delicious! Note - I added an extra egg"
"This was great! I used 4 eggs & added parsley. I added some garlic to the onions. The flavor was very rich! I think I might even add another egg next time. I served this with steamed broccoli & fresh fruit for dinner."

"Was very good but a little dry. When I make it again I will increase the eggs to 4. I used white onions and they turned out great. My husband even liked it and he is very picky. The crust was very tasty."
"I'm surprised there is no milk or cream in this recipe. I'm following the recipe,anyway.Joanne"
