Quiche is one of my go-to breakfast or brunch ideas. It is hearty and filling and using a pre-made pie crust and pre-cooked bacon makes this great recipe super fast and easy as well.

Why I love this recipe

  • homemade quiche is a great way to use leftovers
  • it tastes amazing hot or served chilled the next day
  • the prep time for this recipe in just 15 minutes
  • like our breakfast burritos, egg bites, or egg muffins, it is great for meal prep

You only need a few simple ingredients for this recipe.

  • eggs
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder
  • milk – you can use heavy cream, half and half, or whole milk to make a super silky quiche
  • sharp cheddar cheese
  • bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • premade frozen pie crust or homemade pie crust

Step by step

This is a very easy quiche recipe! 

  1. Mix the filling ingredients in a large bowl. 
  2. Place the pie crust on a baking sheet, then pour the quiche filling into the crust.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven until the egg mixture is set and golden brown! 

There is no need to pre-bake or blind bake the crust in this recipe.


This is one of the most versatile recipes out there, and you can adapt it to use whatever you might have hanging out in the fridge that you need to use up.

  • Use any of your favorite cheeses you have on hand: monterey jack, gruyere, and pepper jack are some favorite alternatives I’ve tried. 
  • Add veggies! Broccoli leftovers? Throw it in! Spinach? Add that too! Anything goes with this yummy quiche! 
  • You can also make this a crustless quiche (fritatta) by spraying a pie dish with nonstick cooking spray and pouring the filling, then baking as directed.

Serving suggestions

You have a ton of options when it comes to what to serve with quiche. It can be a meal on its own or serve alongside fresh fruit, hash browns, salad, tea sandwiches, or veggies. You can also serve it up topped with chopped green onions, fresh chives, parmesan cheese, or topped with hollandaise sauce.


Store leftover quiche covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Serve cold or warm.

Freeze quiche slices in a freezer bag for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave. You can also freeze the quiche before baking and store for up to 3 months. When ready to bake, extend the cooking time 15 minutes or until heated through.
