Cheesy Bacon Quiche

I just love, love, love this recipe! I will admit, it was a tad complicated for me to make, compared to what I usually whip up in the Top Notch Mom kitchen, but I blame it on the fact that I didn’t have the right kind of pie pan. If I would have had the right pan this would have been easy-peasy. One of my husband’s friends actually shared this recipe with me, it was more like “Jeremy said you need to make this for him,” but I will take it. I am always up for trying new things, and I am really excited about having this recipe when our family comes to visit around the holidays. I made it a few weeks ago the night before my friend came to visit and we reheated it in the microwave the next day (and the next day), and it was the easiest and tastiest breakfast ever! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did, and I hope you definitely think about making it for your family over the holidays.
