Homestyle Bacon and Cheese Quiche

Ingredients :

  • 1 prepared pie crust (homemade or store-bought)
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)

Préparations :

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the prepared pie crust in a 9-inch pie dish, pressing it firmly against the bottom and sides. Trim any excess crust and crimp the edges as desired.

In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and drain on paper towels. Once cooled, crumble the bacon into small pieces.

In the same skillet, sauté the diced onion and bell pepper until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and half-and-half until well combined. Season with salt, pepper, and ground nutmeg, if using.

Sprinkle the crumbled bacon, sautéed onion, and bell pepper evenly over the bottom of the pie crust. Top with shredded cheddar cheese.

Pour the egg mixture over the bacon, cheese, and vegetables in the pie crust, ensuring even distribution.

Place the quiche in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the filling is set and the top is golden brown.

Remove the quiche from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
