Quiche Ingredients

Here's what you'll need to make this incredibly easy bacon quiche:

Pie Crust
This convenient bacon quiche recipe is baked in a deep dish, unthawed frozen pie crust. Of course, you can make and freeze your own pastry pie crust

Bacon
A can of bacon bits makes this quiche super easy. You can use homemade bacon if you'd like. 

Onion
Though this bacon quiche recipe just calls for a half cup of diced onion, you can incorporate any veggies you like — mushrooms, bell peppers, and asparagus would all work beautifully. 

Cheese
Use two types of cheese (shredded Swiss and grated Parmesan) to add irresistible flavor and create a creamy texture. 

Eggs
You'll need four whole, lightly beaten, eggs to make this easy bacon quiche. 

Cream
A cup of half-and-half results in a rich, melt-in-your-mouth quiche.

You'll find the full, step-by-step recipe below — but here's what you can expect when you make this top-rated bacon quiche: 

Place the frozen pie crust on a baking sheet. Mix the bacon, onion, and cheeses together, then pour the mixture into the pie crust. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs with the half-and-half. Pour the egg mixture over the cheese-bacon mixture. Bake in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes, then reduce the heat and continue baking until the quiche turns golden brown. 

How Long to Bake Quiche

This bacon quiche comes together in about an hour, including prep time. You'll bake it at 400 degree F for about 15 minutes, then you'll reduce the heat to 350 degrees F for about 35 minutes. 

What to Serve With Quiche

The best side dishes for quiche depend on if you're serving it for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. Looking for some delicious inspiration? Here are a few of our favorite ideas: 

· For breakfast or brunch: Try fruit salad, roasted potatoes, or homemade biscuits. 
· For lunch or dinner: Opt for a side salad, sauteed vegetables, bread, or soup. 

How to Store Quiche

Store the cooled bacon quiche in a shallow airtight container or wrap it tightly in storage wrap or aluminum foil. It will last in the fridge for three to four days. Enjoy the quiche cold or reheat gently in the oven or microwave. 

How to Freeze Quiche

Yes, you can freeze quiche. But there's one caveat: It's best to freeze it before baking. Simply freeze the filling in a zip-top bag or freezer-safe container for up to three months. Thaw the filling in the fridge overnight, then bake according to the recipe.
