I love Quiche – honestly, it’s my go-to for any meal. I have this meal a lot of the time for dinner, but this quiche is great for any meal.
Your favorite pie crust

12 Slices Bacon – cooked crisp and crumbled
1 Cup Sliced Ripe Olives
1 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese

Quiche Lorraine has many variations, all good – this also makes a fine lunch dish with a green salad and fresh fruit or a fruit dessert.
