Potato Crusted Bacon & Gruyere Quiche

Marsha Gardner


I am in the process of submitting menus for a ladies retreat that will be held in the late winter. As I go through my recipe files I am amazed at how many Quiches I have and makes me want to make them all right now. I was talking with my husband about this particular one and he asked me to make it to take on a picnic tomorrow. I didn't know we were going on one until he asked me to make this. How sweet.
