The only thing I would change is maybe look for lower sodium bacon for sodium concerns otherwise perfect weekend breakfast treat. People need to understand it is the carbs that get you even if you are not diabetic. Most lowfat products have more carbs than their full fat cousins.

Another delicious looking recipe, but I will have to make adjustments for cholesterol and sodium allowances.

This was a winner. I didn't have some of the ingredients so I substituted.
Cream = Evaporated milk
Frozen Spinach = fresh chopped spinach
Swiss Cheese = Monteray Jack
Other than that, it was the same and very, very yummy. In fact, I had some for breakfast.

Love this recipe. I can not do dairies, replaced cheese products with Go Veggie Parmessan cheese (vegan cheese) i use coconut milk in a can organic, instead of the cream. Instead of butter, i use grapeseed oil. Better for you all the way around. Hope you like it. If concerned about all the eggs, use half eggs, half egg whites. This recioe serves 6, one portion of this is not going to affect your cholesterol. If you eat all 6 portions, yes! :)

This maybe fattening but it sure sounds and looks tasty. I've got to try and make this one day.

How can you call this healthy. The amount of fat and calories is way over what I would consider healthy.

I am making this TOMORRROW!!!!

When I saw the recipe, it was like the Heavens opened to receive me! Although not diabetic I have been for seven years medically limited to absolutely no more than 25g carbs/day, and quiche is one of the things I've missed the most. (The other biggie is sandwiches, but I don't think even Diabetic Connect can solve THAT conundrum for me anytime soon).
