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

"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."

"My family loves this recipe!! I decided to use 1 cup egg whites, and replace the other cup with 4 eggs. I've tried both an 8 and 9 inch pie shell, while reducing the spinach to 5 oz., and I STILL can't fit all the egg mixture in the crust. I'm afraid to cut back on the eggs because I don't want to end up with too much seasoning. Has anyone else had this problem?"

"My husband and mother love this quiche. I used fresh spinach and sharp white cheddar cheese instead of swiss; also used all white instead of egg substitute and no cottage cheese and turkey bacon. It was wonderful."
