Broccoli, Bacon, and Cheese Quiche

I've never made a quiche before and I decided on this concoction for a quick weeknight dinner. It was awesome! I combined ingredients from a few different recipes so I could make a light version. No picture, as we ate it too fast, LOL!

1 premade pie crust (I used the Pillsbury refrigerated kind)
3 egg whites
3 eggs
1 Cup fat free half & half
1 bunch (about 1.5 cups) broccoli
1 Cup jarlsberg lite cheese, shredded
1 Cup, colby jack cheese, shredded
3 pieces of bacon, cooked and broken up

Preheat oven to 350. Cook the bacon first and set aside. Place the pie crust into a pie plate, then put in the dry ingredients: broccoli, bacon, and half the cheese. Whisk together the eggs and half & half and pour over the dry ingredients. Top with the rest of the cheese. Bake 40 minutes at 350. Before eating make sure to ensure it's fully cooked by putting a toothpick in the center and making sure it's dry when you pull it out.
