I make quiche almost every Sunday morning. It is usually different every time depending what ingredients I have and what is available from the garden. I substituted pepper jack cheese instead of swiss cheese and that gave it more of a tangy flavor. I also alway use a filo dough crust making for a lighter/crusty taste.

is the nutrition correct that many calories, cat be the sugar alone in the apple juice is very high? where is all the calories coming from? 739 a piece. is it from the cream? will milk an sour cream lower it? would like to see some alteration. cant see eating a second slice that will give me a days worth of calories.

It was very good, but I will try either no crust or a different crust.

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.

I never made a quiche before this. I thought it would be hard but it was actually super easy. Next time I might try breakfast sausage or ham with it.

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.

I love bacon and I thought this was a good dish for breakfast-for-dinner.
