Savory Pumpkin Quiche

This quiche satisfies a seasonal craving I get for all things pumpkin. Fresh mushrooms add flavor, and I try different types like baby portobello and cremini mushrooms. —Rachel Garcia, Colorado Springs, Colorado

    This is amazing! It sounds a little weird, but I LOVED it. It's decadent and rich without being heavy. I did adapt it -- took out all vegetables but onions because I couldn't get them because of the quarantine, omitted the bacon, and increased the cheese to 1 1/2 cup and tossed it with 2 tbsp flour. AMAZING. Make sure to blind-bake the crust!

    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.
