This is a slight variation of my Texas Sweet Onion Pie, but with bacon and more eggs added. I used Carb Countdown milk in mine so I added more eggs to make sure that it set up well. I think I prefer the richness of quiches made with cream and there is no noticeable change in the carbs per serving. The texture seems a little watery too. I will stick with cream for my quiches from now on.
