Makeover Real Man Quiche

Quiche is something that I discovered when I married my husband.
I noticed this recipe in the June/July 2012 - Healthy Cooking Taste of Home Magazine 
and just had to try it.
It was really, really good and you could not tell that is lower in calories.
I subbed in turkey bacon and egg beaters for the two large eggs to cut down the calories a bit more. 
Great for hot summer nights or a treat during those long winter months.
The calories are not for using turkey bacon or egg beaters.
