You can add 1 can of mushrooms, drained and 1 jar of pimentos with the bacon for a mushroom quiche. Also another version uses seafood. Substitute 1 cup chopped cooked crabmeat, shrimp, fish sticks, or salmon for the bacon and green onion for the onion. Be sure to pat the crabmeat dry. For a lighter version, use evaporated skim milk for the whipping cream. You can also use any kind of bought pie crust.
