"I have been making this for over ten years and it is always wonderful. I love the flavor of the crescent roll crust running together with the ham, egg, and cheese. I usually do not add bacon, it is just as good either way and it is always quick and easy."

"My family loves this quiche! It is so simple to make and has a nice flavor. I usually use a refrigerated pie crust instead of the crescent rolls because I normally have that on hand. Yummy!"

"My mom and I used to make this when I was younger. I am now living on my own and cook for my friends all the time. Just a few days ago I remembered this recipe and couldn't remember where it came from. So the search was on my mom told me that it came out of a Taste of Home like she knew it all along! Well this used to be one of my favorite meals for any time and i intend on making it some of my friends favorites too!"
