Mother's Day Brunch Recipe - Bacon Quiche

Anybody that knows me knows that I love, love, love bacon. In fact, while in a book store last week I came really close to buying a shirt that said: "Keep Calm and Eat Bacon." I thought better of it when I realized I already own a t-shirt that says "I'd be a vegetarian if bacon grew on trees." I wear it proudly. However, two bacon t-shirts might be a little of a pork overload to my wardrobe. I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere but I'll not go there. And I'm sure that wearing a bacon t-shirt while working out is a bit a contradiction or oxymoron or something. Okay, let's not go there either. 

Anyway, if you're looking for a great quiche recipe for Mother's Day or any time, here you go. 

Bacon Quiche


  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry 
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions 
  • 1 tablespoon butter 
  • 6 eggs 
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream 
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice 
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled 
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper 
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese 
1. Line a 9-in. deep dish pie plate with pastry; trim and flute edges. Set aside.
2. In a small skillet, sauté green onions in butter until tender.
3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream and juice. Stir in the bacon, salt, pepper and green onions.
4. Pour into pastry; sprinkle with cheese.
5. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
6. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
