Reviews for Savory Pumpkin Quiche
"This was very easy and tasty! My husband, who is not a quiche fan, loved it!"
"can i omit the bacon? im vegetarian"
"Love this recipe. It Is delicious as is, but also easy to switch up. I have used small cubes of ham instead of the bacon, yum! You use powdered cheddar in place of the park. There are so many possibilities. My friends request that I make this for them."
"Very good! I omitted the green pepper and instead put in black pepper. Nice dish on a chilly day!"
"This simply did not appeal to our family. My husband does not like pumpkin (I do) but I was hoping the bacon and mushrooms would make up for that fact. It did not. Oh well, not everyone will like everything."
