    Made it for some ladies for Mother’s Day brunch. They absolutely raves about how good it was. So I had to try it. They were right! Absolutely delicious. Definitely will make again.

    Excellent! I used a frozen store-bought crust, substituted diced ham & extra sharp cheddar cheese, tossed in some sautéed onions & garlic scapes, & baked about 15 minutes longer. I love the tip about it being stilly a little jiggly to know when to take it out; mine was perfectly done & not dried out like I’ve mistakenly done in the past by over-cooking. The nutmeg was a nice touch, and the egg texture was smooth & velvety.

    Absolutely great! I made it twice and substituted meat with mushrooms. I used much less guyere with mild cheddar the second time and liked it better. I've made it with home-made and store-bought pie crust. Too bad you cannot upload photos already taken because my dish was as appealing to the eye as it was to the palate.

    A very good basic recipe as a base for making Quiche Lorraine and variations. We make quiche when we need to eat a lot of extra eggs from our chickens, so I almost double the eggs. The first time I made it, by the recipe plus extra eggs, it was delicious. I have made it with a variety of vegetables and always add some bacon drippings to add more flavor.

    I doubled this recipe and made 2 quiches to share at the office. Everyone loved the dish! Just the right bacon- cheese ratio lol I made 2 modifications: 1- I did not double the salt (only used the half tsp salt) for the doubled recipe. 2- since the were a lot of comments about the texture of the quiche, i added one egg to the doubled recipe. Very yummy - thanks so much!!!

    Really good, but make sure to put your bacon in bite-size pieces. Would prefer it to have been a little harder set. We used frozen pie dough, so that could be the cause... Definitely would make again.

    Delicious however slightly looser set than I would have liked.

    doubled the recipe and lengthened the time in the oven. turned out just fine. next time I'll use half the nutmeg which is slightly distracting from the flavors.

    Great recipe! I didn't use bacon, I added grated zuchinni and fresh spinach instead and it turned out yum!

    Excellent! Replaced the gruyere with Swiss to save $$, but still tasty.

    Excellent! Made it with onions on the bottom with the bacon. Only one cup of milk, I omitted the cream. In the toaster oven for 45 min in a standard deep dish precooked pie plate.

    I tweaked the recipe completely, but it was still beyond amazing

    It was amazing! I used frozen pie crusts but baked them to get crispy before putting anything in (as instructed) and that was key. The gruyere and bacon was a great combo... So Yummy!
