Ingredients for bacon onion herb quiche

  • Eggs – This is the base for quiche. I like to use large farm-fresh eggs since they have the best flavor.
  • Milk – Mixed with the eggs helps the quiche set up to the perfect eggy custard. If you don’t have whole milk on hand you can also use half and half or heavy cream.
  • Onion – I used yellow onion in this quiche because it’s what I had on hand. However, sweet onion would be a great option as well.
  • Bacon – Not only does bacon taste great in a quiche but it adds protein and flavor, and overall tastes great. You can cook up bacon fresh or use shelf-stable precooked bacon for a quicker option.
  • Fresh herbs – I used a mix of rosemary and thyme but you could also use fresh oregano, chives, or even basil.
  • Cheese – I used a mix of shredded mozzarella and goat cheese. You can easily swap out the cheeses for your favorites such as shredded cheddar, pepper Jack, or feta.
  • Pie crust – I used a refrigerated pie crust that you can find near the canned biscuits, cinnamon rolls, and other pastries.

Using store-bought pie crust

You can easily use whatever store-bought pie crust you have on hand.

I have used both the refrigerated type you unroll and place into a pie plate and the frozen in a metal pie plate kind.

Both work well here and do not require pre or par-baking.

If you use a frozen pie crust I like to buy the deep dish kind so all the filling fits easily.

Using homemade pie crust

You can easily use your favorite homemade pie crust for this recipe.

Again, no need to prebake the crust, simply add the quiche ingredients to the pie crust and then bake.

What to serve with quiche

In our household quiche is the perfect cook it all together meal!

I like to serve my quiche with roasted vegetables or salad.

You can reheat in the microwave, air fryer, or oven.

Ingredients

  • 1 store bought pie crust
  • 6 thick slices bacon, diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced small
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 ounces crumbled goat cheese
  • Sliced green onions, for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. If you're using a refrigerated pie crust (store-bought or homemade) add it to your pie plate and keep cold in the fridge until ready to use. If you're using a frozen pie crust keep frozen until ready to bake.
  3. In a 12-inch skillet cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from the pan and leave all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat in the skillet.
  4. Add in the onions and saute in the bacon fat until translucent and lightly browned. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  5. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, rosemary, thyme, kosher salt, and black pepper.
  6. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.
  7. Take out your pie crust and scatter the bacon and onions evenly along the bottom of the pie crust.
  8. Gently pour the egg mixture over top the onions and bacon.
  9. Sprinkle the mozzarella and goat cheese into the quiche.
  10. Place your quiche onto a baking sheet (this just helps in case of spills) and place it into the oven and bake for about 45-50 minutes.
  11. The quiche is done when the middle seems set and the crust edges are browned and delicious.
  12. Let rest for about 15 minutes before devouring.

I'm sure it's amazing but I simply can't not doctor things up. I added diced mushrooms and green peppers, then some balsamic fig vinegar as the veggies were almost ready and then 1/2 cup of cheddar to the other two cheeses.... Very good

I was wondering could this be put together the night before and then put in the crust the next morning to reduce the prep time?

Turned out nicely, except the edges started to burn after 25 minutes. It cooked perfectly in that amount of time. 45-50 would be way too long.
