Bacon Breakfast Quiche Recipe

by Maria Luci, editor at Maria’s Farm Country Kitchen and Rodale’s


Need we say more? Well, OK, we will: Bacon is the current golden child of the foodie world. And with good reason. It’s delicious and incredibly versatile, used in everything from savory breakfasts and quick lunches to hearty dinners and even sweet desserts (think maple-bacon cupcakes). And yes, we know that bacon contains a good amount of fat, but if you’re enjoying uncured, organic slices, you’re also getting a good dose of healthy animal proteins, essential B vitamins, and even antioxidant selenium.

It’s not like we have to convince you to eat more bacon—it really is everywhere these days! However, even with all the new and unique bacon recipes being dished up at trendy restaurants and cafés daily, we still love eating our bacon the old-fashioned way: for breakfast. So to celebrate the simple beauty of bacon for breakfast, we’ve expanded on Maria Rodale’s basic quiche recipe to create our own to create a delicious yet easy-to-make breakfast quiche. Enjoy!

Bacon and Cheddar Quiche


  • 1 organic premade frozen piecrust (or make your own flaky piecrust with this recipe)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1½ cups whole milk
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the piecrust and preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Add butter to a frying pan and fry the onions over medium heat until caramelized.
  3. Cook and crumble the bacon slices (the easiest way is with our Stoneware Microwave Bacon Cooker).
  4. In a bowl, mix the eggs, milk, flour, and cheese.
  5. Add the onions and bacon.
  6. Spoon the mixture from the bowl into the piecrust; place on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until the top is golden and the insides feel firm.
  8. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese cools enough to hold the whole thing together. Otherwise, it will be runny when served.

    I just think that it is wrong for a Rodale publication to promote the consumption of bacon on so many levels. You should leave that to the Paula Deen’s of the food industry.
    Even if it’s uncured, most people are on a budget will often opt for the less expensive Smithfield products which you have to admit are wreaking havoc with the environment.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love real quality responsibly raised and cancer-free bacon, especially when tomato season is going strong but I am not promoting it as a private health chef. I recommend flavor alternatives in the palate such as Alderwood smoked salt.

    I ask a question but it was not answered. I read all of the comments but no one addresses my question. I enjoyed all the comments. My question is, I baked a cake and my Icing is too thin. It won’t hold up for decorating. How do I correct this ?
    Please answer ASAP because I have to take the cake to a church .appreciation party for our Pastor tomorrow at 5;00. Thank you very much>
