I think quiche has gotten a bad wrap in the past. Many don’t even know what it is let alone have tasted it. Quiche is a delicious savory egg pie filled with good things like breakfast meats, cheese and vegetables and put into a pie crust. There are a variety of ways to make it depending on how simple or elaborate you want to make it. This recipe for Quiche is a family favorite and is the yummiest breakfast or brunch for Christmas morning. You will also want to check out all the other breakfast recipes below in our blog hop.

Quiche For Christmas Breakfast

 

The quiche recipe below is one I’ve been making for years and I love it! It’s a filling meal all on it’s own. The nice thing is that it’s versatile. If you want to make it low calorie substitutions can easily be made. Quiche reminds me of pizza. Many like a pizza plain and only want cheese or cheese and pepperoni. Some like quiche fully loaded with meats, veggies and a variety of cheeses (I fall under this category.). When you try this recipe make it how you like it. The basic ingredients are the same. The recipe below is how I usually make it.  For Christmas I will usually prepare everything the night before to be poured into my prepared crusts and baked. No need to prepare the day of when all you want to do is spend it with family.

 

Breakfast egg pie and tomatoes

 

Quiche Ingredients 

 

  • Prepared pie crust (For my easy, made from scratch, pie crust go here.)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups of half & half
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 Tbl. flour
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
  • Half pound of bacon (You can substitute or add ham or sausage.)
  • Half an onion
  • Hand full of fresh spinach (Adding mushrooms is also good.)

 

Quiche Instructions

 

  • Pre-bake pie crust at 350 degrees for 6 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl mix together eggs, half & half, flour, salt, pepper and mustard. Set aside.
  • Cut strips of bacon into one inch pieces. In a fry pan cook bacon until almost cooked.

 

frying bacon

 

  • Dice onion and add to bacon before it’s finished frying to soften the onions. When almost finished add spinach and saute for one minute.

 

bacon and spinach cooking

 

  • When bacon, spinach and onion are finished cooking spoon out onto a paper towel lined plate.
  • In the bottom of the pre-baked pie crust add the bacon mixture and top with cheese.
  • Stir the egg mixture one more time and add over the bacon and cheese.

 

Egg mixture

 

  • Bake for 40 minutes or until eggs are cooked through. (Use a knife and poke the quiche in the middle. If it comes out clean the quiche is done.)
  • Let sit 10-15 minutes to set.

 

This recipe really is worth the preparation time. Your family will rave about it and keep asking for it. I’ve made this for other events like showers and brunches and get asked for the recipe often.
