Simple and delicious Cheese and Bacon Quiche recipe!

Cheese and Bacon Quiche Recipe

Looking for a great breakfast that you can make the night before? I've recently discovered how easy it is to make a quiche! I know, I know, I'm a little late to the party but my life just tends to move a bit slower. πŸ˜‰

This is a very easy Cheese and Bacon Quiche recipe that is a great high protein breakfast. You can make it the night before and it will be ready to pull out for breakfast in the morning. For this recipe, you can use a pre-bought crust for ease if you can find a good one or you can simply use your own homemade version. Either way, you've got a great little breakfast or brunch that only takes about 5 minutes of hands-on time.

Cheese and Bacon Quiche Recipe

What You Need:

  • 1 pie crust (You can use Homemade Pie Crust!)
  • 1 cup diced ham (Leave this out or use another type of smoked meat if you have something on hand.)
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • Black pepper

Eggs for Quiche

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and black pepper. You can add as much or as little pepper as you want, depending on your tastes.

Cheese Quiche

In another bowl, toss the cheese and flour together.

Making a Quiche

Place the ham (if you are using it), and bacon in the bottom of the pie crust. Top with the cheese/flour mixture.

Eggs on Quiche

Pour the egg mixture over the top slowly, so that it has time to sink in. Place the pie on a cookie sheet (just in case it overflows in the oven!) and bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes.

Bacon Quiche

The middle of the quiche should no longer be jiggly when it's done baking. Remove from the oven and let it cool for at least 20 minutes before serving so it can finish setting up.

Cheese and Bacon Quiche Recipe

If you aren't ready to eat the quiche right away, cover the dish and set it in the fridge until ready to serve. It will last for a couple of days in the fridge.

Do you make quiche for your family? What do you like to put in it?

If I make your recipe for the crust do I need to cook the crust before adding the quiche ingredients?


4 Merissa October 9, 2016 at 7:59 pm

No you don’t need to cook it first.


5 Angel M October 7, 2016 at 11:51 am

Talk about comfort food! I will be making this really soon!


6 Molly October 7, 2016 at 11:56 am

Is the bacon cooked first?


7 Merissa October 9, 2016 at 7:58 pm

Yes it is.

Hi Merissa, I love your blog and your site has such great recipes and hints. I would love to be able to Pin your things to be able to keep them but I can’t seem to find the widget for Pinning. Could you please tell me where to find it. Thanks and stay warm, can’t believe you have had a dusting of snow already! Brrr

Hi Linda, there should be a little pin button on the left hand side of the page.


10 Lara October 7, 2016 at 2:21 pm

Wow I can’t believe it snowed, I’m in Michigan and it’s 80 here today.
Anyhow, this looks awesome, I can’t wait to make it for my family.


11 Christy October 7, 2016 at 7:58 pm

I can’t wait to try it. But I have a question, is the bacon cooked or uncooked? I have never made quiche and this sounds so good. Thanks


12 Merissa October 9, 2016 at 7:58 pm

Cooked bacon πŸ™‚


13 Esther October 8, 2016 at 9:40 am

I love quiche πŸ™‚ thanks for another recepie. I make quiche with broccoli,camanbert-cheese and cashewnuts; my guests always love it.


14 Kathy H. October 8, 2016 at 2:15 pm

Have you ever put onions or green pepper in this? If so, would you saute them first?


15 Merissa October 9, 2016 at 7:58 pm

I haven’t but that would be great! I would saute them first.


16 Leslie October 9, 2016 at 1:31 pm

This sounds really good and easy, too. I’m thinking about this tonight for supper. I might throw in some spinach. Thanks!


17 Viki Riley October 9, 2016 at 7:56 pm

The Quiche recipe sounds delicious. Would be good with a side salad or a mug of Tomato soup. Thanks for all your ideas and recipes.


18 Angi October 10, 2016 at 12:07 pm

Looks yummy! I love that the recipe doesn’t call for onions! (I’d leave them out anyway!) I’ve been hungry for quiche. Thanks for sharing.

Perfect for great and tasteful week dinner. Thank you ! There is a beer in the fridge, I’ve checked ….. πŸ™‚

Love quiche…perfect for brunch, lunch or dinner. Makes great leftovers too.


21 Pat October 29, 2016 at 12:33 pm

Can’t wait to try this recipe, but was wondering if I can omit the pie crust. Hmm, guess it would be a frittata not a quiche!


22 Merissa October 29, 2016 at 1:45 pm

You should be able to, but yes, it would make a frittata. Still good though! πŸ™‚

Quiche is one of my favorite weeknight dinners! This one looks divine!

You had me at bacon! I like to make quiche for a lazy day meal in the winter. It’s the perfect comfort food dish and bacon just makes it that much better. Congrats, you’re featured this week at the This Is How We Roll Link Party.
