Ingredients

Scale

1 pie crust (softened as directed on the box)

1 c. milk

4 large eggs (slightly beaten)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

8 slices bacon (cooked and crumbled)

1/2 c. cheddar cheese (shredded)

1/2 c. mozzarella cheese

1/3 c. parmesan cheese (grated)


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Put the softened pie crust on a shallow-sided 9-inch glass pie plate and put it inside the oven. Make sure to crimp the edges before you do so.
  3. Add the bacon and cheeses to the bottom of the pie crust.
  4. Mix the milk, eggs, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour the mixture over the bacon and cheese in the crust.
  5. Bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Allow the quiche to set for about 5 to 10 minutes before cutting and serving.

Notes

  • It is highly recommended that you double fold the edges of the crust before crimping it.

This bacon and cheese quiche is a sure hit on the breakfast table. Since you are using a pre-made crust, all you have to do is to mix, pour, and bake. That’s it! You will then have a fancy-looking breakfast meal that you can proudly share with your family members as well as your friends.

Like we have said earlier, this dish is versatile. If you have some leftover meat or vegetables from last night, you can certainly throw them into your quiche. Nobody would say no to the combination of a buttery crust, bacon, and cheese.

Tip: I suggest you pick a pie dish that is more flat than deep because deep pie dishes are harder to cook through.
