1. Place bacon and onions in the pie shell
2. Toss flour with the cheeses and sprinkle over pie shell
3. Beat eggs , half and half and salt and pepper 
and pour over the other ingredients in the pie shell.

It is great reheated. 

This is called

I will definitely be making the quiche. Sounds like a good Christmas morning breakfast.

So happy you plan to make these two wonderful treats for the Holidays!
PS I sprinkle white sugar on the brittle the last few minutes in the oven...

Haha Kathy, you are tapping into my holiday spirit alright! I'm now craving bacon and sugar cookies hehe. The Quiche is a great idea for Christmas morning breakfast. I might get crazy and try for a pull-apart bread :)
