Last week the pantry and fridge were getting a little bare because I refused to grocery shop before we were leaving on a week-long cruise vacation. Unfortunately my husband and kids were not terribly impressed with my “eat the fridge” campaign and they may have even scoffed a bit when I said I’d whip up a quiche for lunch last Sunday. However, when I served up this hearty bacon cheddar quiche the tables were quickly turned! My husband even asked me “have you taken pictures of this, you need to put this recipe on your blog!” Too funny! (Of course I had taken pictures, silly!)
This is one of the easiest recipes out there, and you can adapt it to use whatever you might have hanging out in the fridge that you need to use up. Broccoli leftovers? Throw it in! Spinach salad? Add that too! Anything goes with this yummy quiche!
Bacon Cheddar Quiche Recipe
Hearty Bacon Cheddar Quiche pulls together in a snap and is perfect for brunch or potluck dinners! Made in a deep dish pie crust, it is always a hit!
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
5-6 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped
1 premade frozen deep dish pie shell, thawed according to package directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place pie shell on a baking sheet.
In a large bowl combine eggs, milk, salt and pepper, and garlic powder and stir until blended. Stir in bacon and cheese. Pour mixture into pie shell. Bake for one hour or until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to sit ten minutes before cutting and serving. Top with additional cheese if desired. Tastes delicious hot or cold!
Are you a big fan of quiche? I always love it when I make it, I’m not sure why I don’t make it more…I’ll have to change that in the new year!
