I LOVE Quiche Lorraine, but I also just love quiche. I wanted to make something filling for a holiday breakfast that would give us all the energy to make it to the main holiday meal. This seems to fill the bill, and is asked for by everyone that has had it once.

Place each quiche' on a cookie sheet mid-oven and bake for approximately 25 to 30 minutes. If the weather is very damp outdoors, expect to add about 10 minutes to your baking time.
