  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C). Press the puff pastry into the bottom and up the sides of a shallow casserole dish or 8 inch pie plate.
  2. In a small bowl, beat eggs and milk with a fork until blended. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle a thin layer of Swiss cheese in the bottom of the pastry crust. Sprinkle crumbled bacon over the cheese. Pour the egg mixture into the pastry and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese. Arrange slices of tomato on top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue to bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until crust is browned.

I added 2 more slices of bacon and chopped ham. Because I added more meat I also added an egg. I topped it with shredded swiss cheese and chopped green onions on top after it was done baking and it was delicious!

I made this last night for a picnic dinner. It was very moist and tasty. Something that should be noted was that the puff pastry had to thaw for 40 minutes, so that threw off my timing, but it worked out okay. I used turkey bacon and skim milk to cut back on fat.

This was my 1st time making a quiche of any kind! My family LOVED it! What I did different after reading MANY other recipes was I increased the two eggs to three, bacon to 6 pieces instead of 4, I added 1/2 TBS flour to the eggs and milk and added chopped green onion on top. I made two at the same time and increased the final 30 minutes to 40. These were devoured in 5 minutes or less and by extremely picky children (and one grown man as well!) Enjoy!!

Delicous! I do prefer to make my own pastry crust though but the filling was amazing!

This was lovely and rustic looking. I wanted to prepare the puff pastry into a tart-like quiche, so I had to adjust the egg/milk mixture to a quarter (when using 1 puff pastry) and eyeballed the cheese but kept everything the same with an addition of green onions.

The sliced tomatoes on top gave it great flavor/texture.
