ADVERTISEMENT

Repeatedly, this recipe is my go-to choice!

Quiche, a dish that’s both flexible and comforting, has journeyed from the charming rural areas of France to our lively tables worldwide.

Envision the comfort of delicate pastry, the indulgence of eggs and cheese, coupled with the irresistible crunch of bacon.

This ultimate comfort food brightens up the busiest weeknights and adds a special touch to weekend brunches.

Creating a Bacon and Cheese Quiche could be the ideal way to unite everyone around the table, exchange tales, and forge memories, all while relishing every delicious bite.

A piece of this quiche is excellent by itself, but why not elevate it to a memorable meal? Accompany it with a crisp green salad dressed with a light vinaigrette to introduce some freshness to the dish.

For a more substantial meal, a side of roasted asparagus or steamed green beans balances the richness of the quiche perfectly.

And remember to include a basket of warm dinner rolls, because in our home, no meal is complete without something to mop up all the deliciousness.

Ingredients:

1 9-inch pie crust, homemade or store-bought 8 slices of bacon, chopped 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 4 large eggs 1 cup heavy cream 1/2 cup whole milk 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Ingredients

  • 1 9-inch pie crust, homemade or store-bought
  • 8 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). It’s crucial to warm everything up before we begin.
  2. If you’re using a store-bought crust, fit it into a 9-inch pie pan. If you’ve made your crust, you’re already one step ahead; just crimp the edges for that artisanal touch.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, cook your chopped bacon until it’s as crisp as a fresh fall morning. Once done, transfer it to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess grease.
  4. Sprinkle half of the cheese onto the bottom of the crust, like a cozy winter blanket. Add your cooked bacon on top, setting the stage for the main event.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. This mixture is the heart of a meal that feels like a warm embrace.
  6. Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and cheese. It’s like the comforter over the layers we’ve already prepared.
  7. Top with the remaining cheese, and sprinkle with parsley if you’re using it – it’s like the first snowflakes gently falling on a winter’s eve.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the quiche is set and the top is a beautiful golden brown, reminiscent of our prairie sunsets. If desired, garnish with more chopped cooked bacon on top.
  9. Let it cool for a few minutes – patience is a virtue, after all. Slice and serve it warm to all those eager faces at your table.
  10. Variations & Tips:
  11. Quiche is a forgiving dish, perfect for households with picky eaters or dietary restrictions. You can whisk in some diced vegetables like bell peppers or spinach for added nutrition. If someone isn’t a fan of bacon, swap it out for diced ham or leave the meat out altogether and double up on veggies. If lactose is a concern, try lactose-free milk and cheese. And remember, the most important thing you can put into any dish is a heaping spoonful of love – it’s the secret ingredient that makes everything taste better.
