Bacon Cheddar Quiché is a classic dish that’s a welcome sight on any breakfast, brunch, or supper table! It’s made with three kinds of cheese, smokey bacon all baked in a buttery, flaky pie crust. Whether served for a weeknight meal, lazy weekends, or the holidays, everyone will be smitten with this recipe after just one bite.
For a great dish that can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, Bacon Cheddar Quiché is one of my favorite go-to recipes. It’s easy to make and more than likely you have everything you need right in your fridge and pantry.
I often change up the ingredients and substitute sausage for bacon, or just leave out the meat altogether and throw in some veggies. That’s the beauty of this recipe.
It has such a flavorful base with eggs and cheese that you can get creative and release your inner chef! I typically make two of these pies at a time so that we can have one for dinner and the other for breakfast.
Ingredients Needed For Bacon Cheddar Quiche
- Prepared 9-inch Pie Crust
- Bacon – cooked and chopped
- Sour Cream
- Onion – grated
- Sharp Cheddar Cheese – grated
- White Cheddar Cheese – you can substitute grated Swiss
- Parmesan Cheese – grated
- Kosher Salt
- Fresh Cracked Pepper
What Is Quiché?
Quiché is made with an egg custard that’s baked in a buttery pie shell. I think of it as a savory pie. One of the best things about Quiché is what you can add to it. It’s the perfect vehicle for meat, different cheeses, vegetables, and even seafood.
Is Quiché The Same As A Frittata?
Nope, they are not the same, although they are similar. A frittata is made with eggs, has no crust, with a solid texture. Quiché is moist, light, and baked in a flaky crust.
Helpful Tips For Making This Recipe
- Grate the cheese yourself. Store-bought shredded cheese has a coating that makes melting difficult and will change the overall texture of the recipe.
- Don’t over bake the Quiché. You want to bake until the outside edges are set, but the middle has just a slight jiggle.
- If you don’t like bacon, you can substitute sausage, ham, or turkey bacon.
- You can leave the meat out all together if you want to make a vegetarian version. Spinach, broccoli, pepper, and onions are good additions for this recipe.
- To store left-over Quiché, wrap with foil or plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
