To start making this extremely easy quiche that can be served as breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack, you’ll need the following:
1 cup milk ( to make this lighter, use skim milk-it will cook the same)
1 cup grated Swiss cheese
6 slices of bacon
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
1 pie crust ( to save time, feel free to use pre-made dough found in freezer section)
1 10 inch tart dish- not familiar with this, click here
salt and pepper to taste- a pinch
* I did add a bit of red pepper because I had it! Feel free to add little extras to yours too, or stick to the ingredients above for the more classic recipe.
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Line the pie crust dough in a lightly greased tart dish, cutting the edges clean from any overhanging dough. The edges do not need to be crimped, as the tart dish already has pretty crimping on the sides. Be sure to poke holes on the bottom of dough to prevent any bubbling. Bake dough for approx. 10-12 min. or until dough turns a very slight golden brown. It should not be completely cooked, as it will continue to cook later. (pre-cooking the dough makes for a crisp and flaky crust.)
Fry bacon on medium heat until crisp. Dab any extra grease from bacon and cut into small pieces. While bacon is cooking, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Shred cheese and finely chop onion. Line slightly cooked pie crust with bacon, onion, cheese, then cover with egg mixture.
Feel free to sprinkle a little extra salt and pepper for garnish. Bake in 400 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until quiche slightly puffs and knife comes out clean from the center. Cut and serve along with a fresh salad and perhaps a glass of chilled Pinot Gris or hot cup of coffee, to make a light and easy meal full of flavor, anytime!
Real men eat quiche. Right dad?
