Notes

Substitute eggs whites for eggs. 
Substitute cooked sausage for the bacon. 
Freeze cooked and cooled quiche cups by placing on a cooking sheet and covering. Freeze overnight. Remove from freezer and double wrap them in saran wrap and foil or foil and a gallon zip lock bag (freezer safe)! Remove from freezer the night before and reheat in the microwave for 45-60 seconds or until heated through. 
Most cheeses will work in the crust and in the center. Use what you have or experiment.
