"Oink Oink" Bacon, Ham and Cheddar Quiche

Picture of
I serve this easy quiche most often with fresh fruit. I have made this for feeding company, brunch, dinner, and as a welcome to the neighborhood dish!  I almost always use leftover bacon, but sometimes add a little ham if I have some on hand, since I have a family of voracious eaters! My favorite part is that you use whatever leftover meat and veg that you have in the fridge. You can substitute sausage,zucchini, tomatoes...get creative! I used a prepared frozen thawed pie shell to cut time and costs, but you can substitute your own  homemade pie shell. This freezes well once baked, great for busy cooks!


1 frozen pie crust shell

3 strips leftover bacon, cooked and diced
1/2 cup leftover broccoli, diced (optional)
1/2 cup ham, cooked and diced (optional)
5 large eggs
1/4 cup milk (I used 1%)
1/4 teaspoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon McCormick Garlic & Red Pepper blend
1/2 teaspoon dried chopped onion flakes
a pinch of dried dill (see picture in step 3)
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Step 1: Prep your ingredients and oven

Picture of Prep your ingredients and oven
Pre-heat oven to 375°.

Prick the bottom of the thawed crust with a fork. Bake crust for 10 minutes.

Dice your bacon, ham and broccoli.

Brown the ham in a small  pan. This removes the excess moisture, and will keep your quiche from becoming soggy.

Sprinkle bacon onto bottom of pie crust.

Step 2: Mix your eggs and herbs

Pour into the baked crust.
