Easy Cheese and Bacon Quiche

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. 😉

This is a very easy Cheese 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.

  2. 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
    Blessings,
    Linda

  3. 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.

  4. 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

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

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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!

  11. Your Quiche looks delicious we will really enjoy it! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday and have a great week!

  12. 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.

  13. This quiche recipe looks wonderfully delicious and easy to make! My favorite type of recipe. 🙂

  14. I’ve been looking at quiche recipes this afternoon, so I’m glad I found this. I forget where I read it, but one tip was to sprinkle the cheese onto the pie crust first. He said that thin barrier would help to keep the pie crust from getting soggy! But that is the only change I will make to your recipe. (Well, other than the fact that EVERYTHING I make starts with onions. 😉) Thanks for posting this.
