A Quiché is so versatile you can add or delete ingredients to make your own favorite Quiché at the drop of a dime. One of the things I did change about the Spinach & Bacon Quiche with Jalapenos was the cooking time on this Quiché … it tasted perfect however I would have preferred it be a little less brown. Our original recipe called to bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, I have changed that time to 45 minutes or so below.
