From the Chef: "When I think of quiche, I think light and airy, served with a glass of champagne at a ladies' lunch. Well, this is not that kind of dainty quiche. If you like the consistency and flavor profile of a quiche but are hoping for a heartier dish, then you are in luck. Within the rich egg custard, crisp roasted potatoes and salty bacon add a welcome texture and crunch."
