    Oh my gosh Martha, PLEASE tell us if we need to cook the bacon first. Not all of us are intuitive cooks. It did have a delicious flavor but the recipe needs an accuracy overhaul. The first trial produced a soggy bacon quiche. Since the ingredients provide you with enough filling for TWO quiches not one, I went ahead and tried again with cooked bacon. Much better. We're relying on you for accurate instructions. Please be careful.

    I feel like this poor recipe has probably been overlooked, because of bad reviews from people who didn't understand the recipe. I made this during my bumber crop of zucchini. I have made hundreds of quiches and this one is excellent. I don't have a deep dish tart pan with a removable bottom, so I used a 10" springform pan and it worked great - all of the filling fit. The bacon adds its salty flavor while the zucchini gives great color and texture with the egg puffing up around it all.

    Extremely frustrating that this recipe does NOT state this is enough filling for (2) quiches. Also, how does one push fresh thyme and freshly ground pepper through a fine mesh sieve? Shouldn't it be added later? Bacon should absolutely be cooked in advance and zucchini salted & drained. Will never use this recipe again.

    This was really good! However the filling is definitely for two quiche. I made one batch of the recipe as written (with the full tart dough recipe) and got two very full quiche. It was perfect cause I threw one in the freezer for later.

    This was a very time consuming receipe and in the end not worth the effort. Bacon needs to be cooked--not explaining this is a huge oversight. I would say so should the zucchini. It is also not clear when the egg and creme fraiche should be combined? The ingredient amounts are enough for more than two quiches....some corrections need to be made.

    Great receipe with modifications: cook bacon first! I added sliced mushrooms which I cooked w the bacon. Only use 6 eggs and half the liquid (I used half and half). Added a touch of nutmeg. Was perfect! The eggs and milk/cream are way over!

    I made this for supper tonight and everyone raved about it. I did make some changes based on what I had on hand. I used Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry as the crust- rolled it out a bit, put it in cast iron skillet, chilled it, added weights & pre-baked. Also, added a tiny minced shallot, a bit of Parmesan along with the Gruyere & cayenne pepper. I baked the bacon in the oven before adding it to quiche. I had all other ingredients & followed instructions.

    I am at our country house for the summer and they never heard of creme fraiche. What can I use to substitute.

    I have to ask, shouldn't the bacon be cooked first - and 10 eggs does seem excessive. But I look forward to trying this!
