Notes

This recipe is for 6 servings of quiche.
If you use regular bacon and cheese, this recipe is quite high in sodium. Consider using low-sodium bacon and low-sodium cheese if you need to watch your sodium intake. 
Feel free to experiment with fillings, just be sure to maintain the 2:1 eggs-to-dairy ratio!
To pre-bake the quiche to serve at a later date, cook it for 3/4 of the total time, then remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature. Wrap in plastic or place in an airtight container, then freeze. 
To serve, remove from the freezer for a few hours and then bake at 350F (180C) for 15 minutes. 
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for several months.
