Makeover Mini Bacon Quiches

I asked the Taste of Home Test kitchen to help lighten up the Mini Bacon Quiches recipe my friends and family love—but not to touch the bacon! Calories, fat and sodium were slashed—but not one lick of real bacon flavor! —Julie Hieggelke, Grayslake, Illinois

    I make these for every gathering and receive many complements. I can make them weeks ahead of time and place them back in the tart shell package and freeze them. Before the company comes, pop them in the oven until the cheese is melted and voila! Can't beat it. I never vary the recipe either.

    Wonder if they freeze. Sounds good but I would have to freeze makes to many for one person.
