Swiss and Bacon Quiche


The smoky taste of bacon and swiss cheese makes this quiche perfect for dinner or breakfast.  It also heats up well in the microwave, so grab a leftover slice for lunch.  I adapted the recipe from an old Southern Living recipe I found.  I added a few shortcuts to make it faster.

Here’s what you’ll need:


1 pie crust

4-6 slices of bacon, crumbled (I used 1/2 of this pack of pre-cooked)

1 cup Swiss cheese, grated

4 eggs

2 cups half & half

1/4 cup pamesan cheese

salt and pepper

dash of nutmeg

Put the pie crust in a pie plate.  Prick it with a fork and bake it at 400 degrees for 3 minutes.  Take it out and prick it again, then bake it for another 5 minutes. 

In a bowl, beat the eggs and then add the other ingredients, stirring to combine.  Pour into the pie shell.  Turn the oven down to 350 degrees and bake for 45 minutes.

  1. Looks wonderful- I love a fluffy quiche! SOuthern Living has some of THE best recipes, don’t you think? I have several of their cookbooks and magazines and I’ve yet to prpare one of their recipes I didn’t like!

  3. Yum! I love a good quiche. Looks delicious!

  4. This sounds so good! Have you tried it with any other type of cheese? I have over 40 packs, but no swiss wouldn’t you know.

  5. That looks like a nice little pie. Swiss is delicious but I’ll have to pass on trying to make this. It still makes for a yummy presentation!

  8. Looks delicious- of course, how can you go wrong with cheese and bacon? Thanks for the new recipe!

  9. I made this over the weekend, and it was really good and easy. I upped the cheese (because I love cheese haha), but switched out the cheese because I didn’t have any swiss. I used a cup of mild cheddar (shredded) and increased the Parmesan cheese to 1/2 cup. It was great and tasted even better re-heated the next day. Thanks for the recipe!
