Easy Bacon and Mushroom Quiche Makes 1 – 9″ Quiche
1 single pie crust (or 1 store-bought crust)
5 eggs 1 cup milk or cream Salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup chopped onions 10 slices bacon, chopped 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped 1 cup sliced mushrooms
3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a quiche pan or pie pan with the unbaked pie crust. Beat eggs with milk, salt and pepper. Set aside.
2. Saute together onions and bacon. When almost cooked through, add bell pepper and mushrooms. Continue sauteeing until fully cooked and veggies are slightly soft.
3. Transfer veggies/bacon to the unbaked pie crust. Sprinkle with 1/2 the cheese. Pour the egg mixture over the veggies then sprinkle with the remainder of the cheese. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until filling is slightly puffed and browned and cooked through. Cool slightly before serving, to give the filling a chance to set and therefore slice and serve up nicer.
