I was excited to try this because it got really rave reviews, but mine just turned out so-so. I'm still giving it 3 stars because it was so-so, but nothing spectacular for the amount of time it took. I also did change some things, so part of the ho-hum results were probably my fault. First of all, I think the name "quick" is misleading -- it took me about a half hour to prepare this, but that was mostly because of pre-cooking the bacon, and I also added some chopped broccoli and chopped spinach (which had to be nuked in the microwave for a few minutes). Also, I had that Saturday morning slow-start syndrome going, so again... maybe my fault. Then, I had to cook it nearly an hour to get it to set up, and even then there were some parts which were "iffy," but the family was getting so hungry we went ahead and ate it anyways. The only other changes I made were to halve the bacon, use whole wheat flour, and omit the onions since my hubby doesn't like them, and use cheddar (didn't have any swiss). Overall, the taste was ok, but a little bland, and to me, the flour taste waaaay overpowered the eggs, but I take responsibility for that since I used whole wheat. Maybe that made the difference. I've made several different quiche recipes, but probably would not return to this one again -- all the flavor was on the bottom with the bacon and cheese, and the top was, again, flour-y tasting! :) On the upside, we were so hungry by the time it was done, we gobbled it down anyways!
