Homemade Bacon and Cheese Quiche


Homemade Bacon and Cheese Quiche


Quiche, a dish that beautifully embodies the essence of home cooking, has traveled from the tranquil French countryside to grace our vibrant Midwestern tables. It embodies the warmth of puff pastry, the creamy depth of eggs and cheese, and the rich crunch of bacon in every bite. Making bacon and cheese quiche isn’t just about preparing a meal; It’s an opportunity to bring people together, share stories and create lasting memories with a dish that feels like home. Accompanying a portion of this quiche with a fresh green salad and a light vinaigrette provides a bright contrast on the palate. For those who prefer a more substantial meal, roasted asparagus side dishes or steamed green beans are the perfect addition and enhance the  rich flavor of the quiche.And of course, no meal in our house is truly complete without a basket of warm rolls ready to soak up every delicious bite.


9-inch pie crust (homemade or store-bought)

8 slices  chopped bacon


1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

4 large eggs

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup whole milk

1/4 teaspoon salt


1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Preparing the oven  is essential for  perfect baking.


Place the pie dough in a 9-inch pie pan and crimp the edges to give it a homemade feel, whether  store-bought or homemade.

Place half of the grated cheese on the cake base to create a cozy base. Top it with the crispy bacon and set the stage for what’s to come.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs,  cream, milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg. This blend promises a dish that is as comforting as a warm hug.Gently pour the egg mixture over the bacon and cheese, covering  like a blanket.

Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and add parsley for a touch of green reminiscent of the first signs of spring.


Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the quiche is set and the top is golden brown, reflecting a Midwestern sunset. For a special touch, add more cooked bacon on the side.

Let the quiche  cool slightly before serving and teach us the virtue of patience.Then serve it hot and put a smile on the faces of your entire table.
