Quiche is an egg based pie that is traditionally made with Swiss cheese. I am not a fan of Swiss cheese so I have always used Cheddar or Greek Feta.

Any Quiche is great for pot luck's, holiday mornings, brunch,  even dinner.

Speaking of pie crust-   make sure to try this Quiche Recipe with our Buttery Pie Crust

Or skip it all together and go crustless.  Be free! It is liberating.  Oh wait...  that is braless.  Ok well crustless may not feel the same, but it is just as satisfying.  Simple pour the mixture into a buttered dish instead.

The Easiest Quiche Recipe Ever Plus 4 Variations!

The Easiest Quiche Recipe. This recipe is my basic recipe including crispy bacon and cheddar. You can use this recipe for a base and add any additional ingredients you wish just like you would with an omelette.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • Basic Recipe:
  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 1 ½ Cups of Cream or Milk, I use what I have on hand
  • 1 Store bought, or your own DEEP DISH pie crust NOTE******** IF NOT USING DEEP DISH US 3 EGGS, 4 DEPENDING ON WHAT SIZE EGGS.
  • Bacon Cheddar:
  • 1 lb cooked, chopped crispy bacon
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Salt & Pepper is optional. I leave it out because the bacon is salty enough.

Instructions

  1. Pre Heat the oven to 375
  2. If not already done, then cut the bacon and fry until crispy. TIP- it is much easier to cut the bacon into small pieces if it is partially frozen.
  3. Wisk the eggs and milk together in a large bowl
  4. Lay the pie crust out into a 9" pie plate
  5. Drain the bacon grease, blot with paper towels
  6. Shred cheese if necessary ( I only had a block, you can buy shredded)
  7. Add half of the bacon and half of the cheese to the egg mix. Stir well.
  8. Pour into pie crust
  9. Bake on 375 for 20 mins. Add remaining bacon and cheese evenly over the top and continue baking for 20-25 mins. (Time may vary)
  10. Quiche is down when golden brown and raised significantly. If you are uncertain, then you can test like you would a cake.
  11. Let the Quiche set for about 10 minutes. It will fall, no worries it is suppose to.
  12. Cut & Serve!

MAKE THIS RECIPE KETO OR LOW CARB APPROVED! 

This is such an easy recipe to make keto or low carb approved.  There is a few simple ways it can be done.  If you are following a ketogenic diet then you are more restricted in your carb count than if following a low carb diet.  So , the easiest way to make this keto approved is to kick the crust completely.  Turn it into a frittata! You can do this in a skillet right in the oven or even on the stove. 

To make a keto approved frittata on the stove in a skillet simply follow the instructions for the ingredients, being sure to use cream instead of milk.  Pour into a buttered skillet and place over medium low heat, covered until cooked through.  Done! Feel free to cut into pieces and meal prep for the week.   Below is a photo of one created in the oven with an 8x8 glass pan.

If you are following a low carb diet where there is more available daily carbs to eat, try using an easy almond flour crust recipe like this one from Wholesome Yum.  It crisps up nicely around the edges and gives you more of a traditional quiche feel!  

For a coconut crust visit Low Carb Yum

Cutting the butter right into the crust gives it a nice, buttery, flakey style bite just like a traditional pie crust.

Try experimenting with your quiche whether a normal, keto or low carb version.  The ingredients are virtually endless! I have even seen one made bagel and lox style - with the smoked salmon and cream cheese. 

No bagel of course if you are low carb.  Try mushroom and swiss,  BBQ pork, Steak and cheese, the possibilities are endless. Really! 

Traditional Bacon Cheddar is our favorite!

  1. Can I make this the night before to be served the next day room temperature? Need something to bring to my sons school for teach appreciation day. Thx.

  2. The quiche looks fantastic! Love that you included variations of the basic recipe.

    • Thank you Lisa ! I make it with your crust now and the whole family loves it 🙂

  3. I want to make these for gifts. Can I assemble and freeze the entire uncooked pie to be cooked at their leisure? If so, any adjustments in preparations?

  4. My family likes it with Canadian bacon, Provolone cheese and diced onions.
