Sausage & Bacon Breakfast Quiche & {A Taste of the South Feature}

Good Morning everyone. Today I'm posting a recipe for my favorite breakfast quiche. I was going to go with a overnight breakfast casserole for Thanksgiving morning, but time got away from me.  I still had so much food prep to be done for Thanksgiving that breakfast got pushed aside. No problem though.

I just prepared my favorite breakfast quiche and all was well again. The reason this is my favorite quiche is because tit's so easy and versatile.  I have come to realize that as long as you have your basic egg, milk and cheese ingredients you can pretty much change this quiche recipe to suit your own taste.

I chose to make my favorite sausage and bacon quiche with lots of cheese. If you think using both meats are too much then feel free to pick just one. You can also add ham, spinach, sauteed peppers, onions, green onions, mushrooms or change the cheese variety to make a whole new quiche recipe.

 Just use your imagination and come up with all different varieties. As for what type of cheese to use, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Swiss, Mozzarella or even Fontina works great.
 One of my favorite quiche combinations is cubed ham, green onions and Swiss cheese. Also if time is not on your side you can use mini pie shells to make little individual quiches.

By using mini pie shells this will cut down on the baking time. This is great if you are in a hurry. Mini pie shells can be hard to find so when you see them in the grocery store grab a box.

Quiche for breakfast might not be anything new, but if it is you, then I hope you will give this recipe a try. In usual fashion the full recipes is at the end of this post.


 Cheesy, meaty goodness!!!


It was such a blessing to have my delicious breakfast quiche featured in the March/April 2013 issue of Taste of the South's Breakfast Issue. I hope you will check it out.




Sausage & Bacon Breakfast Quiche

Ingredients:
1 – 9 inch unbaked deep dish pie crust
1 ½ - cups shredded cheddar or Monterey jack cheese
1 ½ - cups whole milk, half & half (or a combination of both)
1 – tablespoon flour
4 - eggs, slightly beaten
4 – bacon slices, cooked & crumbled
3/4 - 1 – cup breakfast sausage cooked & crumbled.

Directions:
Add shredded cheese to bowl and toss cheese with flour, set aside. Fry bacon and sausage until cooked. Drain off any grease.

Crumble the bacon and sausage and set aside. In a large bowl combine the eggs and milk. Add the bacon, sausage and cheese to the egg mix and mix well. Pour into an unbaked crust.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until set. Insert toothpick or knife to test if the quiche is cooked through. 


Cook's Note: Serve this quiche with a yummy fruit salad, buttermilk biscuits, blueberry muffins, or bagels and cream cheese. If you're making a meatless quiche try my favorite sausage and cream cheese crescents.

I love breakfast quiche and you just gave me a great suggestion for using mini pie shells! Never have I thought to use those. I actually have some now because I made mini apple pies for Thanksgiving. You are right, they were tough to find, but I found them at Walmart. I think they always have them.

quiche is totally my favorite too. Awesome post.

Morning Tina! I am sharing my favorite appetizer for the Holidays, Sweet Onion Tartlets. I have some tartlet cups and stuff leftover to make more, so I think I'll do that today.

Miranda I guess I think they are hard to find because, mini pie shells are something we don't use often. I am sure Walmart has had them all along. LOL

Rachelle your tartlettes sound wonderful. Great using all the leftovers too.

Kirby maybe you can make it for Christmas.

Damaris I have never been to your site, it's beautiful!!! I am so making those caramel popcorn ball lolipops. And such a cute idea for the snow globe cookies.

I love any kind of quiche! They're great for any time of the day!

I added the Mini Gingerbread Raisin Loaves that are great for Christmas gift giving.

Nathan was completely opposed to it when I first served it to him, until he tasted it ;-) then, he was hooked!

I didn't recognize the place! too cute! ;-)

Thanks for linking the recipe!!! you've inspired me to make quiche again!

I just read your post linked to caring for cast iron skillets - I was wondering... how often do you need to season your cast iron skillet?? I just got my first one (yay!) and it came preseasoned. But now I am wondering how often I need to season it myself. Any thoughts?

Tina at Mommy's Kitchen said... #

Once a cast iron skillet is seasoned you should not have to season it again.

Thanks so much for your advice!!

I made this wonderful quiche tonight for dinner. I had a lot of spiral ham leftover from our Sun dinner so I subsituted ham. I think I diced up about 1 1/4 cups. I also sauteed some onion and green pepper and added. I only had cheddar cheese on hand but I mixed some mild and sharp. I also added a little black pepper and a little Mrs Dash. This was soooooo delish! It cooked and set up just perfectly. I fixed a tossed salad with it. I look forward to making this again and will try bacon and sausage. I can see where you can get creative with this recipe or just use up ingredients you have on hand. I am so glad I tried this as it's going to be a favorite in our house from now on!

Oh Tina, this looks great. My hubby would love this! I love quiches!!

Karen said... #

Can you add sweet bell peppers and onions to this, I used to have a breakfast recipe like this but it had those vegetables in it, and it was fantastic, I also used to switch meats, but unfortunately lost the recipe and have been looking for one ever since.

Scarlett said... #

I love many quiches, but don't like ones that are too "eggy". Could I maybe make this with 2 or 3 eggs & add a bit more milk? Thanks :-)
