Happy Sunday! When I think of Sunday I think of brunch, relaxation and catching up on my DVR.
However, this morning I’ve been a busy bee. Made a quiche for brunch, cleaned the kitchen, mopped the floor and I’m about to meal prep some food for the week. I’ll save the relaxation for later this afternoon.
So, My Mom has been making this quiche I made today for as long as I can remember. It’s a great breakfast dish and easy to make.
Bacon Swiss Quiche
6 crisp bacon slices, chopped (I use cooked bacon and just cut in thin slices with a scissor)
1 1/2 cups half and half (or heavy cream)
3/4-1 cup Swiss cheese, grated
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 pie crust (pre-made or homemade)
2t onion powder
Sprinkle: Salt and Pepper
Directions: Preheat oven to 400°. Place the pie crust on a baking sheet. This will catch anything that may drip out while cooking. Add chopped onion, bacon and Swiss cheese to the pie crust. In a bowl mix together eggs and half and half (or heavy cream), onion powder and salt and pepper. Pour the mixture in the pie crust. Place the pie in the oven for 15 minutes at 400° and then reduce oven to 300° and cook for 25-30 minutes. Check the quiche with a knife in the center, if the knife comes out clean it’s done. Let sit for 15 minutes before serving.
Note: You can wrap the edges of the pie crust with foil to keep it from burning. It’s great to partially prep ahead of time especially if you have company staying with you or company coming over for brunch. Just add the onion, bacon and cheese to the pie crust and cover it and place in the refrigerator the night before. The next day you just need to make the egg mixture and pour into the crust. It just cuts down on the time in the morning.
Enjoy your Sunday!
