"I love this recipe because it has a secret ingredient: puff pastry crust. The beauty of this quiche is that you don't have to worry about cutting butter or rolling out the perfect piecrust. Just thaw an all-butter puff pastry and drape it into a 9-inch baking dish. Fill the puff pastry with eggs and creme fraiche, bacon and Gruyere. It's absolute heaven. Definitely fancy and delicious enough to impress Mom."
