For a great dish that can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Bacon Cheddar Quiche 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 all together and throw in some veggies. That’s the beauty of this recipe. It has such a flavorful base with the eggs and cheese that you can get creative and release your inner chef! I often make two of these pies at a time so that we can have one for dinner and the other for breakfast since it keeps really well in the refrigerator. I hope you’ll get creative with your version of this recipe…ENJOY!
