Spinach Swiss Quiche

Warm wedges of this tasty quiche are packed with convenient frozen spinach, sweet red pepper and Swiss cheese. My family requests this dish year-round. You can saute the bacon mixture the night before to reduce prep time on busy mornings. —April Milner, Dearborn Heights, Michigan

    This is delicious! I used ingredients that were not the fat free versions. It is the combo of the ingredients that makes this so good,

    Very Good, with the red and green the dish it was great for Christmas. Next time I will pre-bake the pastry according to their package directions or make a crust; mine puffed up and shrank. The bell pepper makes this dish. Oh, and I added more bacon.

    This is a great recipe, though I made it with all real things, just the way they were put on this earth. It's the fat in dairy that helps your body stay slim and it's the YOLKS in eggs that have all the Omega-3s. Trying to strip off parts of real food isn't a good policy, in my opinion. Portion control, regular exercise and a positive attitude are the recipe for success! That said, this recipe is loaded with good stuff and tastes delicious. Thank you for sharing.

    Fantastic! I added a few extra veggies from the frig and it turned out great. I too had extra filling so I made an extra and stuck in in the freezer for later.
