Today I’m sharing with you the most delicious quiche recipe! It’s so easy to throw together and can be served hot or cold which makes it the perfect make-ahead dish for your next party. I made it for a  ladies brunch a few months ago. I’ve tried several quiche recipes in the past and this one is by far my favorite.

I put crispy bacon and shredded cheddar cheese in this one but you could really customize it and add any combination of toppings you want. I decided to use phyllo dough as the crust on this one but I’ve done pie crust also and they are both delicious!
