Classic Bacon Swiss Quiche

A quiche is fabulous for any meal of the day. It’s a great brunch item that keeps for a few days in the refrigerator, so there is no need to worry about leftovers. You can even serve it for dinner alongside a simple salad and glass of white wine.

Classic Bacon Swiss Quiche

For this quiche, I used Swiss cheese, turkey bacon, half a large red onion, and a shallot. However, you may add tomatoes, mushrooms, parsley, basil, goat cheese, or even prosciutto (that’s a hint about an upcoming recipe…shhhhh!).

Oh neat! I've had goat cheese quiche, but not Neufchatel. I'll definitely have to try it!
