When I came across this recipe earlier this week, it instantly caught my eye. First of all it is super easy and second of all I knew everyone in my family would love it. We are in the process of moving this week so I am trying to use of things that I have in the house and most of these ingredients were already in my kitchen. I love trying new breakfast foods but I don’t always have time to try them in the morning so I have been trying to make one night a week “breakfast for dinner”. I had extra filling that wouldn’t fit in my pie crust so I added it to a small pan and cooked it separately. I decided that while I loved the pie crust version it was pretty good without the crust as well. So if you are trying to cut calories or don’t have a pie crust handy, you could do it this way too!
Bacon & Cheese Quiche
- 1 frozen pie crust
- 8 slices of bacon, crumbled
- 2 cups shredded cheese (I used a 4-cheese Italian Blend)
- 2 Tablespoons Flour
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup cream
- 3/4 cup Half and Half
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- dash of pepper
Bake pie crust according to package instructions. I did the least amount of time that it recommended. Set aside to cool slightly.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine cheese and flour- mix well.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs slightly and then add cream, half and half, salt and pepper, bacon, and cheese mixture. Mix well.
Spoon into crust.
Place foil around crust edges to avoid burning.
Bake for 30-45 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean. (I checked mine after 20 minutes and every ten minutes until done.)
Let set for 10 minutes before serving.
