    Very good! My family loves all of the ingredients so we were bound to like it. I did add additional bacon just because I had no other use for the rest of the package other than to eat it alone. I figured I might as well add it to the dish.

    This turned out great. I made half the recipe in a 8.5"/1qt. pie dish. I added 1c. of precooked broccoli florets that I chopped even smaller. I used just 1T. bacon bits but I'll leave those out next time. I used 1/2c. finely shredded mozzarella cheese and 1/2c. of one called Fiesta Blend, which is a mixture of four cheeses. I used half a can of drained white meat chicken breast that I shredded. The recipes uses no salt or pepper so I added 3/8t. salt and 1/4t. pepper and it's the?right amount. I used 1/2c. heavy cream. I didn't precook onion with garlic. I used just 1T. finely chopped white onion and used a scant 1/8t. garlic powder. Mine baked in 25 minutes. Because this didn't have much liquid in it it's not watery and is very firm, which is how I prefer quiche to be. I'll definitely make this again, minus the bacon bits.

    This was very good and my family loved it. Fixed as a side dish to pancakes.

    This was okay, but if I make it again I think I'd add a half can of well drained Rotel just for a little more flavor.

    This was incredible! The smell while baking... the flavor was just wonderful! I got made fun of when I said it was crustless BUT when they tried it, they LOVED it....I will definitely make it again!

    Made this recipe for a ladies' brunch. It was a huge success with many, many requests for the recipe. Followed the recipe exactly.

    I used leftover roasted lemon chicken, but followed the recipe exactly for everything else. It seemed a little dry and bland to me; I like the idea of adding spinach, mushrooms and/or tomato. I might add some salsa on top of the leftovers to see if that will perk it up.

    My husband absolutely dislikes quiche's, but he loved this one.
