Quick and easy meals are a must-have in my life. And I’ll be honest, cooking is really not one of my favorite things to do. That and having a household of people that all have very distinct likes and dislikes can make it frustrating. Today’s breakfast choice, however, is one that everyone can agree to love!

Quick and Easy Quiche

For me this is very fitting for a Mother’s Day breakfast, I grew up with my mom making quiche on a regular basis. It’s a very simple dish to make and you can easily add and change up ingredients to your tasting. I was a very picky eater and would never try this when my mom made it – now I know why she didn’t force the issue…more for her to enjoy!

Quick and Easy Quiche

This morning, with my 5 year old’s assistance, I made a bacon and cheese quiche. With quiche recipes, it’s very easy to use what you have in your refrigerator to come up with a new combination – as long as you have

  • shredded cheese
  • half and half (or milk),
  • and eggs

Then you’ve got the basics.  I stock up on deep pie crusts when they are on sale, so I usually have some in my freezer.  This recipe works best with the 9 inch deep dish pie crusts. Don’t fret if you don’t have that size, you can just cut the recipe in half or, even better, make two!

I combined leftover cheddar and Parmesan cheeses with a 3 ounce bottle of bacon bits (the kind you buy for salad toppings) and diced onions and celery in a bowl. Mixed together and poured in the frozen pie crust.

In another bowl I mixed together 4 large eggs and a cup of milk (I had half and half – it was a choice between using it in my coffee or this recipe – for my family’s sake the coffee won out!).

Pour the milk and egg mixture into the pie crust and place in the preheated oven.

I bake for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees and then lower the temperature down to 350 and bake for another 35-40 minutes.

Quick and Easy Quiche

Absolutely deelish!!! Some variations I enjoy are adding chopped broccoli (I use less meat when I do this) or substituting the bacon for diced ham or crumbled breakfast sausage.

  • BTW…your quiche looks DELICIOUS and easy to make…right up my alley! 😀

  • Adding cooking to your blogging repertoire…a DIVA you are lady! Since I don’t have a post on homemaking to share…thought I’d still show some love! Happy “belated” Mother’s Day to you also!! Thanks for stopping by and linking up…have a lovely evening!

  • I remember the first time I tried quiche, I had a piece not knowing what it was and finding that I absolutely loved it. It looked complicated to make so I never thought to make it myself. I actually have the quiche dish at panera Bread for breakfast quite a bit. After seeing how easy it actually is, I think I’ll give it a go! thanks for sharing this yummy recipe with us!

  • That looks AWESOME!!! I am a horrible cook and really do NOT like to be in the kitchen… perhaps this is doable! 🙂 I found you at Doing You Well…

  • My mother makes a quiche every Christmas morning. Longstanding holiday tradition. I love to eat it, but wasn’t looking forward to making the delicious dish. This seems doable!

    • Michelle

      I was very surprised the first time I made one just how doable it was! Of course, nothing compares to my mom’s but that’s how it should be, right?

  • Can you believe that not only have I never made a quiche… I haven’t even ever eaten one either!!?? Definitely on my “to cook” list though 🙂

    • Michelle

      I tried quiche for the first time late in life, too. There’s still time catch up:)

  • Kathleen Kennedy-Leon

    I haven’t made a quiche in quite some time–this looks yummy–thanks for sharing–we are going away Memorial day weekend and these travel really well too–

    • Michelle

      They sure do! And taste even better after sitting overnight, in my opinion!

  • I have never tried to make a Quiche, but this DOES look quick and easy. Just bookmarked for later – thanks!

  • sarah
