Bacon & Onion Quiche

Serves 6

  • 3 oz. chopped bacon (cooked)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 5 oz. shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 oz. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 (9") deep dish frozen pie crust
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup half-and-half

  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Mix the bacon, onion and cheeses in a bowl. Place into unthawed pie crust
  3. Mix the eggs and half-and-half and pour over the cheese mixture
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for 35 minutes or until top of quiche is brown and a knife stuck in the center comes out clean
  5. Let quiche stand 10 min before serving. Serve warm.

This was AMAZING! Hands down best thing I've made yet. I did a few things different from the recipe. I stabbed the frozen pie crust all over (used Marie Callendar's crust) and baked for 12 minutes before adding the toppings to keep the crust from getting soggy. I used a lot more onion, half a large onion worth. I used extra sharp cheddar and romano cheese that I grated myself, and put some extra cheddar on top. I used half regular milk and half half-and-half. I also added some garlic powder, fresh ground pepper and paprika to the egg mixture. We will definately have this again. I can't wait to heat up some for breakfast tomorrow!

Is there any substitution for the swiss cheese?

You can use whatever cheeses you want :) I didn't use Swiss.
