Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche
This is an easy, delicious quiche that takes no time to prepare using a frozen deep-dish pie crust, bacon bits, cream, and two types of cheese. I have made this for numerous brunches and everyone raves about it!

My family found this quiche to be just okay. We used cheddar in place of swiss and added real bacon. I think where it went wrong for us was the parmesean. It was just too strong. If I make this again, I am going to cut down on the parm or cut it out all together.Read More
I omitted the cream, and used a 8oz pkg of cream cheese. I also used cheddar instead of the 2 cheeses called for. Instead of making 1 big tart, I made a mini ones to serve at an appie party. everyone LOVED them. Thanx a lot. :)
This was a very very easy quiche to make, I was a virgin quiche baker (lol) and it came out FAB!!! I will definitely add this to my rotation of recipes. I added sauteed fresh mushrooms and green peppers. I used minced onions that I rehydrated since I didn't have an onion on hand and I used an Italian cheese blend. I followed all the other posts suggestions as well. I would like to note, though: place foil around the edges of your quiche when you bake it so the crusts don't overbake!!! Make this...it is simple and yummy!!! :)Thanks to the originator!
This quiche is so quick and yummy! I usually just make it with a bag of shredded Italian cheese and leave out the onions because my kids don't like them. I also use the Oscar Meyer bacon pieces instead of bacon bits, or I use real bacon. And to keep the crust from getting too dark I wrap it with a bit of tinfoil. Thanks!
This recipe is simply and easy. I like to saute the onions first and add a 1/2 tsp of fresh grated nutmeg. I also use 8 strips of crispy bacon instead of bacon bits.
I just loved this quiche. Hadn't made one in years and decided to try again at hubby's prompting. Although I like swiss, it seems like it's often too strong in quiche, so I followed the recipe except used sharp cheddar in place of the swiss. Also I cooked the onion in EVOO (crisp/tender) first. I used an unroll and bake crust, layered in the cooked onion, cheeses (real shredded parmesan) and bacon pieces before pouring on the eggs as directed. Baked up perfectly, and was so tasty I couldn't stop eating it. I plan to add other ingred's in the future - maybe some cooked mushrooms or sundried tomatoes! And it was soooo easy and quick. This will definately be one of my regulars from now on!
This quiche was just as described easy and delicious! Added in some mushrooms and used a smoky swiss and cheddar blend which gave the quiche a wonderful flavor. Also added my standby Tony Chachere's seasoning to give this a bit more of a kick. We found that the measurements for the cheese, onion and bacon mixture made quite alot and was enough for two quiches. Not a problem, we are happy to make another one tonight!
This was awesome!! I added ham cubes and put 2.5 ounces mozzerella and 2.5 ounces swiss cheese. My kids loved it so much they asked if we could have it again tonight!!
This recipe was a hit! My husband said it was one of the best things I have ever made him. I did change the bacon bits to six pieces of real bacon and I used about one and a half cup chedder cheese instead. I will be making this recipe again...tonight!
I've been making this recipe for over 30 years. My family and I don't like Swiss so I used shredded cheddar (bagged if in a rush- just as good!) and I always crisp fry and crumble my own bacon (I don't like canned bacon, just a personal preference). Over the years I've added - broccoli floretts, fresh chopped tomatoes, mushrooms, substituted ham for the bacon. I've turned it 'Mexican' by using Pepper Jack cheese and fresh Jalepenos from the garden with salsa on top or baked in. It's a great 'Base' recipe and allows your creativity to come thru beautifully.
This recipe came out great!!! Funny thing is my father is a chef and he questioned the preperation and cook time but I decided to try it anyway. I actually made 2 different types..one with bacon (pre cooked worked great), red peppers, onion, and italian chz, with a couple scallions on top...the other with mushroom, spinach, canadian bacon, and FETA! Sooooo good! The second one was everyone's favorite, even non mushroom lovers. I sauteed all ingredients first with seasonings. (Make sure spinach is squeezed really well, no liquid.) I wrapped foil around crust to avoid burning but be careful if any egg has touched a spot it will stick to the foil. Anyway, my father had his chef knowledge ego checked a little and I had 2 types of quiche that was a hit at the company breakfast on Friday!! Woo hoo!! Thanks! : )
Easy recipe, altho I didn't have bacon bits, swiss cheese or onions. LOL!! I cooked 6 slices of bacon and chopped them up, used colby/monterey jack instead of the swiss and one tablespoon of onion powder. I also added black pepper. Very yummy and will definitely make it again!
Great recipe! I add bacon from the salad bar at my local grocery store. The nice people there have already cooked, drained, cooled and crumbled the fresh bacon for me! All the taste and none of the mess!
I made my own crust last night and set it in the fridge to roll out and form this morning. I used cook thick-sliced hickory smoked bacon that I cooked and crumbled and evaporated milk instead of cream, only because that was what I had on hand. Very simple. The kids always love "pie" for breakfast and my husband and I get an omelette, sort of. Next time, I think I'll add more "stuff" but tasty as is.
I've been making a similar version since the 70s with rave reviews each time. The basic recipe is 4 eggs with 1 cup of cream (anything from lofat milk to heavy cream works- it's just a matter of how rich and decadent you want it to be) with a bit of Lawry's seasoning salt and ground black pepper. The crust can be homemade, or bought. If I don't have time for homemade I prefer Pillsbury's pop out crusts (deli) vs frozen. Put in whatever fillings you like- meats, veggies or cheeses. My favorite is campari tomatoes with fresh mozzarella and basil leaves.
I have made quiche so many times with this recipe (2 or 3 times a month) and have to say that this is the perfect base recipe! Couple of notes - the recipe doesn't specify but I recommend a deep dish crust. Also I have made mine with milk every time as cream isn't a regular item in the fridge - I add an extra egg too since milk isn't as thick as cream. Don't forget to wrap thin strips of foil around the crust so it doesn't burn. Our family favorite is minced garlic, green pepper, diced sausage links, with provolone cheese, and parmesan sprinkled on the top before cooking makes a crispy golden crust on top. Super yummy. Thanks for posting!
My husband is a hard man to impress, but as soon as I served him this quiche, he about fell off his chair. He couldn't believe the flavor! I made a few changes to an already excellent recipe. I sauteed my onions, using a cup raw, along with fresh spinach, salt, pepper and a teaspoon of fresh garlic. Didn't have 1/2 and 1/2 so I used half 2% and half sour cream. A little salt and pepper to the eggs and .....viola! Delicious! Can't wait to mix it up with different ingredients. Oh, and by the way, this recipe serves 3 happy eaters...at most!
Easy and yummy... I always double it because you get 2 shells in eack pack of pie shells, and they freeze so well.
Love this for its simplicity and quick preparation -- took me just 10 minutes to assemble.
Haven't made quiche in many years. I followed this recipe but had Canadian bacon to be used up. Very good. Had it for dinner with soup and breakfast as well. Thank you!
I changed this up a bit and it came out awesome! First I fried up about 1/3 lb fresh bacon. I used the pre-chopped frozen onions, which I sauteed in the bacon grease. I added 4oz cream cheese to the onion to melt and then mixed in the cooked bacon and 1 cup sharp cheddar. I spread the mixture on the bottom of the pie crust. I mixed together the eggs and 1 cup milk, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then, I poured the egg mixture into the crust and mixed it up a bit so the onion/bacon/cheese mixture wasn't just stuck to the bottom. Followed the baking time and it came out perfect! Very nice flavor. I will definately keep this recipe on hand.
I used 6 slices of real bacon and then just crumbled them after I cooked them. I used cheddar instead of the other cheeses and I used whole milk instead of half and half. I omitted the onion and added spinach...so pretty much I changed everything! But this was a good base recipe for a person who made quiche for the first time!
I really enjoyed this recipe and after a few tries made the following changes: Substituted fat free evaporated milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2, tasted great did not notice any difference but a lower fat option. Substituted ham instead of bacon. Lightly pan fried onions, Portobello mushrooms and broccoli. This recipe is very forgiving and will lend itself to many delish combinations. Also, freezes very well, warm up in an oven. Thank you for sharing !!
I was really skeptical about baking this without per baking the pie crust, but it came out wonderfully. I did have to cover my edges because I prefer them a lighter brown. The egg to cream ratio makes a perfect light base for your ingredients. So much room for customization. Thanks for a wonderful recipe I will always keep on hand.
A winner. I used Vitamin D milk because that's what was on hand. Very tasty, thank you.
The recipe is a good start. I do not use bacon bits, buy precooked bacon and crumble or cook some earlier in the day or even the day before and use that, I use 3 slices of low sodium nitrate free bacon. Second you need a little seasoning, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper should be a good start and please sauté the onions first, the caramelized onions add a completely different flavor (mellow) which you need with Swiss cheese. And I added about 5 minutes to the bake time (at 350) to get the middle to set. Lastly you MUST let the quiche rest 10-15 minutes for it to fully set before slicing. This reheats great if there is any left.
My family found this quiche to be just okay. We used cheddar in place of swiss and added real bacon. I think where it went wrong for us was the parmesean. It was just too strong. If I make this again, I am going to cut down on the parm or cut it out all together.
Very easy and good. I just used cheddar cheese and we were out of half and half so I used milk. It turned out good.
This recipe is easy as named, and gives you a moist, delicious quiche; it also gives you a lot of opportunity to experiment with different ingredients. I used half Gruyere and half regular Swiss cheeses; I also prefer to use shaved Parmesan rather than grated. Try adding 1 cup of cooked frozen spinach ( be sure you squeeze it dry) and sliced mushrooms (saute with the onions).......delicious!
Delicious and easy to cook. We added frozen spinash. Sauteed with half an onion and added the bacon and cheese together before putting into pie crust. Added 10 mins onto the cooking time and put under broiler (low) for 3 mins to brown the top. Was absoultely delicious!
My thirteen-year old son made this for dinner tonight. Made it exactly as written except he used real bacon (7 slices crumbled up). Came out perfect and tasted great!! Pie shell went in frozen (sat on the counter 10 minutes during prep). Next time, I would saute the onions a bit to sweeten their flavor and I would add some spinach for color. But this is such an easy, tasty recipe using things we always have on hand. Highly recommend.
I love this Quiche. I am retired,& I make this for my wife & her fellow nurses when they have a special Brunch. They never leave any leftovers. I use Microwave Bacon,& it comes out great. I also substitute Heavy cream for part of the Half & Half when I have some to use up. Tastes terrific! knfan47
There many ways to make this recipe your own. Add a little of your favorite hot sauce to the eggs. maybe a touch of Italian seasoning. What ever is your favorite. Also when pouring the eggs in do it over the back of a big spoon & that way it will spread out evenly & not create a big dent in the middle.
I took this quiche to a brunch and it was a huge hit! Suggestions I took from other posts: I used the Oscar Meyer already cooked Real Bacon Pieces; 1/2 c. mild Rotel (spoon it in so that you do not make your mixture too watery); 1/3 c. Sargeanto Parm/Ramano cheese; Marie Calendar fronzen pie crust (other brands crumbled very easily). It was good because even the mild Rotel has a little kick to it and added interest to the taste and texture. So good...they will ask you for the recipe.
Holy cow, my husband INHALED this! Our 14 yr old daughter made this (w/my help : ) - we baked it on a Sat night and reheated slices Sun morning. When I came downstairs, 2 pieces (both, hubby's!) were already gone, and he ended up eating one more before I finally put it back into the fridge. Only thing I'd change is cooking time/temp - was a bit overdone for me. Just made another one, cooked it 45 min at 350 (added fresh spinach and a can of drained mushrooms that needed to be used up.) Thx for recipe! **Update: made again this weekend, trying to use up multiple cheeses, but out of half-and-half. Subbed evap milk for 1/2 and 1/2, and used up some cheddar, mont jack and blue cheese crumbles - RIDICULOUSLY good! My fave quiche!
I love the idea of the bacon bits. I always use cooked bacon in my quiche, but it gets 'soggy'. I throw in some fresh spinach or any other veggies I have on hand. Nothing is beter than a bacon quiche and a salad! Thanks for the idea.
This was my first attempt at quiche and it turned out perfect! I did change a few things though: 8 ounces of cheese seemed like it would be too much, so I used 6 instead. I also used freshly cooked bacon instead of bacon bits. I will sautee the onions first next time, as they did not really seem to cook. I also added a bit of white pepper. I can't really fault the recipe as it's written - I'm sure it's just as yummy - so I'm still giving it 5 stars.
I thought this was a great recipe. I am not a big swiss cheese person so I used a mix of italian blend, mexican blend and a little cheddar (not too much because of the amount of oil that sometimes results from cheddar). I believe that the best part of this recipe is that it is totally versatile. Do what you like with regard to the meat and cheese and it should probably turn out well. This time I used sauteed onion, salami, ham, and crispy bacon (chopped up, of course). I would definitely make it again and I would use whatever I had on hand for the meat/cheese ingredients. I found that when I doubled the recipe and added 2 extra eggs, plus 1/2 cup additional half and half, I was able to make two large quiches.
First attempt at quiche...quick easy...used sausage cheese and brocolli instead of bacon. VERY GOOD
Very easy to make and quite tasty. I did add some spinach.
I made this this morning but substituted ham instead of bacon and added broccoli. It made so much that I put it in two shells for double the deliciousness. Very easy recipe to use as a base and substitute ingredients.
This was delish! I used regular milk and added some tomatoes.
This was my first time making Quiche, and it couldn't have been easier or better!! Thanx for the great recipe(: And you can add in whatever you want to make it different everytime!!
This is a great recipe that you can fix as listed or "tweak" to your liking and personal taste. This is the first quiche I have made and it turned out great! I did change it slightly as I did not have cream, so I used cream cheese as someone else had mentioned. I just added a bit of milk and heated it in the microwave long enough to make it creamy and added it to the eggs along with minced garlic, a pinch of salt and pepper as well as a bit of onion powder as I did not have an onion either. I used cheedar, a bit of mexican blend and fresh shredded parm. I covered the edges of the crust with foil for the first 15 minutes or so (its easier to do when the dish is cold instead of hot!). When I removed the foil I added a bit of grated cheese to the top of the quiche. It turned out wonderful! My daughter loved it and says that now quiche is her favorite food - even over pizza! Thanks for a great recipe.
This is delicious! I didn't change a thing and it is so easy to make. My husband loved this and he is very picky. Will definitely be making this again! (I did use fat free half and half.)
My husband and I loved this recipe. This was my first time ever making a quiche and I was very happy with it. I did have to bake it an additional 10 minutes longer then the recipe stated for it to set in the middle. I also followed other reviewer advice and used real bacon PIECES instead of bits and used a combination of cheddar and italian blend shredded cheeses. I also covered the edges with foil to avoid burning. Using the frozen pie crust made this super simple and fast. Will definitely make again.
Wow, this was a really flavorful, easy dish to make. It was so easy that hubby was able to make it & it turned out well. We had enough to fill 2 pie crusts.
I used this recipe as a base of three quiches that I made. I added sauteed onion and red and green bellpepper, season salt, garlic powder, chopped mushrooms, steamed broccoli, and mozzarella cheese , and Mrs. Dash table blend seasoning and a dash of nutmeg.
Great recipe, but for those other men out there that are new to the cooking arena, please remember to remove the white paper sheet from inside the bottom of the ready made crust. It begins to appear like frost, but believe me when I tell you it is not. It bakes well when left in place, but the taste of the paper surely spoils the deliciousness of the quiche. lol
This quiche recipe was great! I usually throw in some broccoli in my quiches but I have to say I did not miss it here. I did make a couple of modifications though and I think they really pushed this recipe into the 5 star category. Firstly, instead of using bacon bits I cooked thick cut bacon in the oven at 400 degrees seasoned with fresh ground pepper and dried rosemary until crisp (about 25 minutes). I also used skim milk instead of cream because its what I had on hand. Finally, I didn't have any grated parmesan so instead I used a shaved parmesan/reggiano blend that I had on hand. Oh, and I beat the heck out of the egg/milk mixture! Makes it nice and fluffy. The results were magnificent!
I made this for Christmas breakfast and it was a definite winner! This is a wonderful base recipe and it's so easy to add whatever you have on hand to suit individual tastes. I used minced leftover ham instead of bacon, added minced sweet pepper, and added black pepper and garlic powder. I substitued skim milk for the cream and added about 1/4 cup (maybe a little more) of light sour cream to make the mixture richer. If you're watching your cholestorol, you can use egg substitute successfully instead of eggs or a mixture of eggs and egg substitute. Everyone went back for seconds!
So easy!! My husband (who HATES to help w/cooking) said he'd be able to handle this one!! I added some mushrooms to it, and fine chopped bell peppers...So yummy thank you!
Made using real bacon and cheddar jack cheese instead of Swis, and evaporated milk instead of half and half. Delicious recipe, even my picky eaters ate it!
Wonderful recipe. I did add some asparagus (only because it was on it's last leg in the fridge) and a few chopped artichoke hearts, again just because I needed to use them. Served it to a friend for lunch and she raved about it. I did separate everything except the eggs into to pie shells as I thought there was too much for one. Then just doubled the eggs and half and half and made two quiches. Kept one and sent the other home with my friend. Thanks so much for sharing such a great recipe. It definitely will be going into the "keeper" file.
This quiche is delicious! My boyfriend loves quiche and he loved this one! I tossed in mushrooms and bell pepper and used colby chesses and parmesan. It was delicious. I've made it several times since and everyone loves it. Oh and once I made it with ham and it was great. I like to add more bacon than the recipe calls for also.
I followed DAWNROBYN's advice regarding the Sargento cheese (I used the 4-cheese variety) & Oscar meyer bacon pieces. EXCELLENT ADVICE! I added a small can of Rotell and small jar of sliced mushrooms to give the quiche more of a omlette-y feel. I also made both a "milk" and "half&half" version of the quiche. It's a great recipe and helped me discover how flexible a quiche can be!
This is an excellent recipe! I had never made quiche before and this turned out great. My family keeps asking for me to make it... and I have again and again!
This is a delicious quiche. I found that I had to bake it for 20 more minutes than what the recipe called for, but that may have been because I didn't mix the eggs and half-and-half well enough. Served it with a simple side dish of grapefruit segments with a light sugar coating.
Pretty decent recipe for how easy it is. The first time I made the recipe I followed the directions. The second time I made the recipe I added a 1/2 cup of bisquick to the egg and milk mixture in place of a prepared crust to save some fat and calories. I also used 2% milk in place of the half and half. I thought it still tasted great. For added nutrition I added some chopped spinach. Great versatile and yummy recipe.
I used a bit of cheddar instead of parmesan. I also added onion and some diced ham. It was spectacular and my boyfriend and I now have a new favorite recipe to make together.
Doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 pan. It looks yummy! Hope the people that I made it for enjoy it!
Wow. Great recipe for customizing! I had some leftover bacon/cheddar cheese and wasn't really thinking about quiche, but this caught my eye. Only 2% milk available, but had some leftover sour cream (used 1/2 2% and 1/2 sour cream as called for) - Followed the rest of the recipe and it came out bang-on! So well that I made it *again* the following night. Really great. Thanks!
HEALTHIER OPTION STILL DELICIOUS! I used skim milk instead of half and half, and it still turned out light, fluffy, and tasty! I also switched the swiss for a monterrey/cheddar mix, sauteed the onions, and used real bacon. I also followed the recommendation to cover the pie crust edges with tin foil after 20 minutes or so, and it turned out great!
I made two quiches, one with bacon (real) and gruyere/swiss cheese and one with frozen spinach and cheddar. I didn't have deep dish pie crusts, so I left out one egg and used less milk (I didn't have any cream). They both turned out lovely, but a little bit bland. I would increase the cheese next time and use some more seasoning. Overall, very easy and good!
Made this for my parents when they came to visit. They were in wow and very empressed with it. Thanks for the fantastic recipe.... Yummy
Good recipe. I love quiche and I thought this one was yummy. Followed the recipe as written.
easy and delicious. Who could ask for more?
I have made quiche the hard way numerous times, but this is almost as good and so much less work! The only minor change I would make is to thaw the pie shell, poke fork holes all over it and bake it for 10 mins on 400 degrees to prevent the crust from getting mushy. I made two of these for breakfast on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but they both were devoured on Turkey Day!!
very good recipe! the measurements are a bit off though, it was nearly enough to make 2 (which i did). i used 6 pieces of real bacon cut into pieces instead of bacon bits, and a mozarella and parmesan cheese mixture instead. i wanted to make this for friends, but alot of them got sick after eating it. turns out one's lactose-intolerant, one's vegetarian and didn't do a good job of picking the bacon out, and the other one's allergic to eggs. but regardless, i thought this recipe was delicious and will be making it again. its not often you find a recipe so easy even a college student has time to make it.
This is a good basic quiche recipe. It cooked up light and fluffy and held together when sliced & served.
I've made this several times now with all kinds of different fillers and it always comes out great. Easy and delicious...a household staple here. Thanks for submitting!
I made this following the directions and it was delicious. My guests asked for seconds and the recipe. (I did guess the Parmesan cheese at 1/3 cup).
good recipe. I used the cheese I had on hand...cheddar, mozarella and a little parmesean. Used ff evaporated milk and real pan fried bacon slices crumbled up. Added a little salt and pepper since the cheeses I used were more mild...turned out nicely. thanx!
This was FAST, EASY, and DELICIOUS! I lightly sauteed mushrooms and onions before I added it, and I used sharp cheddar and Sargento Italian blend (it has Romano and Parmesan in it), and it came out WONDERFULLY!! I'll definitely reuse this recipe!
This was great. I used real bacon pieces from the pouch, cheddar cheese only and added black pepper. I used 3 eggs and a shallow pie crust. We enjoyed this on our Sunday morning! Thank you.
Excellent!! I will be making this often, possibly trying some different veggies too :) Thanks for the great Easter breakfast!!
EGG-cellent! My kids loved it!! I did use sharp cheddar cheese instead.
this tastes so good....
As I type this, I am eating this loveley Quiche. I've made this a million times, and absolutley love it. The only change I would make is 1 oz. more bacon, and the flavor is much more prominent.I also use cheddar cheese instead of the cheese recomended, it turns out great. I just love this, it's really easy to make, and the only thing I don't like is how long it takes to cook! :) Absolutley FAB!!!
I had two small frozen pie crusts that I wanted to use up in order to have fresh ones for Thanksgiving so I looked here on allrecipes.com and chose this one. I divided the filling into the two pie shells and baked for the stated time. It turned out perfect. I had never tasted quiche before as I feared it would be like a custard (which I really, really don't like) but it was more like the consistancy of an omlet with cheese, bacon, and onion. On a crust no less. If I'd only known this years ago. This was so delicious I can see myself making this once a week and I can't wait to make it for my friends. Thanks for the easy recipe.
I made this for an impromptu brunch. It was a favorite. I'd cut it into 10 pieces instead of 6 and there were 3 left over. I madenitnagain 2 days later because i still had all the ingredients. It lasted only 2 days! Lol yummy!
This was great, and easy. I added fresh minced garlic instead of the onion and some paprika. Turned out wonderful :-)
This worked for me. Quiche is all about the right texture after it is baked. Only changed the bacon bits to real bacon. Otherwise bake time was perfect with covering the edges of the crust for about 1/2 the time.
Excellent recipe. I used 6 slices bacon and cooked the onion with it and added some red pepper and fresh spinach. Turned out great, my family loved it!
This is the first quiche recipe I ever attempted and it was so easy and delish, that I have made it several times since. I am not exactly a "natural" in the kitchen but in all honesty, this is probably one of the best quiches I've ever had so it's clearly the recipe dimensions!!! Go DawnRobyn! I do use real bacon (about 5 slices of the precooked, which I just throw in the microwave), and I also add in a handful or so of chopped frozen spinach which I think adds to it. I have used Swiss cheese as well instead of Parm and it's been excellent. I pretty much use whatever cheese I have on hand. You cannot go wrong if you use this quiche recipe as your base. It's fantastic!
I used real bacon and because I forgot to buy 1/2 and 1/2, I used some diluted sour cream. It was delish! Will make this again.
My all time favourite quiche recipie, takes not time to prepare and next to no time to cook used it over 10 times and hasn't failed me once. 2 thumbs up from Australia
I made a couple changes to this recipe- 1) Instead of bacon bits, I used 6 strips of bacon, crumbled. 2) I used cheddar cheese in place of swiss/parmesan. It was so delicious!! I also made a second quiche- instead of bacon I used brocolli, so yummy also!! Can't wait to make this again!!
This was a quick an easy weekend breakfast. I used cooked and crumbled bacon rather than bacon bits, but followed the rest of the recipe closely. The quiche was light, fluffy, and just creamy enough. Perfect!
Heavenly Dah-Licious! Nom Nom! Made this recipe in a flash with what ingredients I had on hand. Once you start making it, you quickly realize how many substitutions and variations are available to you here, to make this a dinner recipe even. You get a soufflé style middle, with delicious flavors in every bite you take. I chopped, seasoned up and grilled some super sweet onion first, in about 2 tablespoons of the leftover bacon grease, as I cooked up my own bacon (gotta get it crispy) and I cooked up six slices. Who wants fake bacon bits?! But if that's all you've got the cabinet, use it! I then added the bacon cheese mixture. using a jack and pepper jack mixture with the Parmesan. The little kick of heat was nice. You could even add a can of diced green chilies (drained) to this, and it would be amazing! Go light on any extra salt ingredients, because the bacon and the Parmesan add a great deal of salt on their own. I didn't have half-and-half, but I did have a half a cup of heavy whipping cream, which I mixed with milk to make a full cup of half-and-half! All of the substitutions were perfect! My mother always taught me to keep a piecrust in the freezer. And I choose the Marie Calendars pie crusts. They're delicious, and you get two in a package. If you don't have time to make your own crusts, start keeping one in the freezer! You'll be surprised by the things you begin to make, just because you have a piecrust in the freezer! This blew my Som away!! Who says real men
Very easy recipe but used real beacon then carmalized onions in beacon grease not healthy but soo good. Also used leftover cheese had on hand some Gouda,sharp cheddar and a little white American. Added dried chives,freezes dried garlic,salt pepper,paprika sprinkled on top with McCormick Parmesan herb seasoning. Had to foil the edges since needed to cook little longer with extra cheese I added with extra egg but great base recipe. Also added 2 tble of gravy flour in cheese mix since I hate soupy quiche was perfect
Very good and yummy. The second time I made it I used some unsweetened evaporated milk and found it to be richer, but of course its fattier.
This is a great starter recipe. I make it with the parmesan and a mix of reduced-fat cheeses (2% cheddar and reduced fat swiss), use a whole wheat crust from the organic store, and substitute 2% evaporated milk for the half-and-half. You cannot tell the difference from using half and half (which I started with). My kids love it too. Next time, I am going to try non-fat evaporated milk. Seriously, there is so much cheese in here, you will never know the difference. And please use real bacon (no nitrates if you are inclined to buy that but not necessary).
Amazingly delicious and wickedly easy! I chose to use the pre-cut and rolled pie dough, but you could use a frozen, in-the-pan crust too. Just whipped it all up per directions (I did add chopped onions to the cheese mixture) and baked. I also baked it about 8 minutes more than the recipe said. I am sure that it just my oven though. I covered the edges of the crust with foil when it started to brown too much. Easy, take-along breakfast!
We found the recipe to have too much onion and not enough bacon. Next time, we'll reduce the amount of onion and saute it.
We tried this recipe at my brother-in-law's house after they had sworn up, down, and sideways that quiche was so difficult that even they could not get them to work properly. But we were determined to have quiche so we, the cooking novices, took on the challenge. It came out perfectly and it has come out perfectly every time since. We love how simple it is to prepare and how well it turns out. Two tips: cheddar adds extra tastiness (although it makes things a bit salty) and NEVER use "bac-os" instead of bacon bits. Or as an alternative use little ham chunks.
I used a homemade crust and it was WONDERFUL-rave reviews!
This lives up to its name - easy. Has the added bonus of delicious! Will make again.
Very easy. I used leftover Easter ham instead of the bacon.
