Bacon and Cheese Quiche

Every now and then we enjoy quiche and a green salad for Sunday night dinner and for years the only quiche I have made is my mother’s ham and cheese quiche. Well, this quiche recipe is a game changer and is now my favorite. Paired with a green salad with fresh berries and raspberry vinaigrette this makes for a lovely, no fuss dinner.
