This home made Bacon & Cheese Quiche is perfect for breakfast or dinner!
Oh do I love a good quiche! And I’m not picky when it comes to what’s in them…I have yet to meet a quiche I don’t like. But for so long I thought my family didn’t like quiche (I have no idea where that thought even came from), so I never made them at home, and would just order them if we went out to eat. But last week I was craving a quiche, so I thought I would try to make one for dinner. I figured it was worth a shot because a lot of times kids change their minds about what they like or don’t like, so it’s important not to give up on foods. I decided to keep the ingredients simple and made sure they were ones the kids liked…with bacon and cheese and pie crust, you just can’t go wrong.
And to my great surprise everyone enjoyed this quiche so much, even my youngest who is my picky eater! Quiches are so easy to make, don’t be afraid of them! You can even keep things extra simple by using a pre-made pie crust, then the rest is as simple as whisking together ingredients, pouring it into a pre-baked crust then baking!
How to Pre Bake a Pie Crust
I just wanted to share this picture above with you so you can see what it looks like to pre-bake a pie crust. This is a required step for the making of your quiche, and it’s super simple. Basically all you have to do is weigh down the crust so it doesn’t bubble up during the pre-baking step. You can use pre-bought pie weights, but I just like to use dried rice, lentils or beans…they work great and they’re cheap!
Quiches aren’t just for breakfast!
Most think of quiches as breakfast food, but they’re great for dinner too. You can load them up with your favourite vegetables, use your preferred cheese, add ham, bacon, pancetta…tailor them to your tastebuds! Quiches are great because the ingredients are so simple, chances are you have everything you need right in your fridge. Anyway, I hope you love this recipe…it’s full of the delicious and comforting flavours of bacon and cheese. Because bacon. And cheeeeese. SO good.
Quiche Recipe Tips:
- You have to pre-bake the crust for this quiche recipe. See above for how to do that.
- You can use a pre-made pie crust from the grocery store for this recipe. This is a great short cut.
- I used bacon for this quiche, but the great thing about quiches is you can anything you like to them. Use ham instead, or add cooked leftover vegetables like broccoli. The possibilities are endless.
