I came to this site expecting to try several quiche recipes, but started with this one and haven’t strayed since…THANKS DAWNROBYN. This is remarkably easy and tasty and I have been able to make it work in many variations…so here goes: 1. Yes, the Hormel/Oscar Meyer Real Bacon is perfect for this. 2. Swiss is good for the first time, but don’t be afraid to try gouda, cheddar, or any hard cheese you like (add 5-10 min cooking with cheddar). 3. Don’t leave out the (approx 1/3rd Cup) parmesan/romano cheese even if you’ve changed the swiss, it helps add to the creamy texture of the final product. 4. Adjust onions to taste; oldest daughter wants none, I want more. Scallions give it a very rich onion flavor and the frozen chopped save time, but fresh Vidalia is best. 5. I’ve also discovered frozen chopped red/green peppers, these needed to be chopped a bit more finely. 6. I have found that adding frozen ingredients adds to the cooking time (“duh”). 7. Add ½ tsp of salt & pepper to taste to the eggs and cream. 8. For vegetarian, I’ve used approx 3 oz of spinach (cooked in 1T water and drained) OR approx 3 oz of frozen broccoli florets instead of bacon. 9. For just a few cents more, I’ve found the Marie Callendar’s frozen pie crusts to be the best for this. 10. Right now I am making one with 2 oz frozen broccoli florets AND 2 oz bacon with cheddar cheese & frozen chopped onion. I let the pie crust, onion, and broccoli sit out of the freezer for 1 hour first…Pefrect!

Hint: use the Sargento Parmesan/Romano shredded cheese, NOT grated parmesan cheese. You can really use any kind of cheese you prefer. Also, use the 2.8 oz. bag of Oscar Mayer bacon PIECES (available near bacon bits- but DON'T USE BACON BITS). Finally, to make it easier, Ore Ida makes frozen chopped onion (makes everything go quicker to not have to chop onions). Truth be told, you can use any cheese or other ingredients that you like in your quiche. It is very versatile! Hope this makes it easier and tastier!!

I omitted the cream, and used a 8oz pkg of cream cheese. I also used cheddar instead of the 2 cheeses called for. Instead of making 1 big tart, I made a mini ones to serve at an appie party. everyone LOVED them. Thanx a lot. :)
