Hello Friends! Did you have a wonderful weekend? Ours was filled with friends and football. Recently, I updated my simple quiche recipe, so I am sharing it with you today. It not only makes a great breakfast or brunch idea, but you can also serve it for dinner. The best part is that it can be made ahead which makes it a great make-ahead breakfast recipe.
I like to use a frozen pie crust because they taste just as good as homemade, but it saves you so much time.
You can also add ham or spinach to the batter.
In no time at all, you will have a wonderful savory breakfast quiche.
Mmm! Who is ready to eat?
Bacon Egg Quiche Ingredients
Eggs – I use large Grade A eggs for this recipe.
Bacon – I love using traditional bacon, but you can use turkey bacon too if you like.
Cheese – Medium Cheddar is my favorite, but you can use Sharp Cheddar, Monterey Jack or a mixture of both to change it up.
Milk – I like using 2% milk for this recipe. Whole milk works great too!
