Gouda & Cheddar Quiche with Bacon
For a long time I was afraid of making quiche. I never ordered it, made it, or ate it. We just never made it in our family growing up. Until I tried it recently at a resaurant in my neighborhood and FELL IN LOVE WITH IT! It’s such a great dish to make for guests and it works any time of the day! I beg you… try it once and you will love it! Don’t be afraid because it’s SO easy and delicious!! I made it for lunch, but it also works for brunch and dinner. This recipe is SO easy and delicious. You will definitely make it again and again.
½ (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrusts (or make your own)
8 bacon slices, cut into 1/2 –inch pieces
4 green onions, chopped (white and green parts)
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Gouda cheese, divided
1 cup (4 ounces) sharp cheddar cheese, divided
6 large eggs
1 cup whipping cream
¼ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground red pepper
1/8 tsp. ground white pepper
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
Special Equipment: Deep Pie Dish, 9-in.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Let piecrust come to room temperature (about 15 minutes) and roll out slightly to make the round a little bit larger. Fit into a 9-inch pie plate, fold edges under and crimp. Poke several holes in the bottom and sides of the crust with a fork. Bake for 7 minutes; remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
Cook bacon pieces in a large skillet until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle green onions, bacon, ½ cup of gouda cheese, and ½ cup of cheddar cheese into the baked crust.
Whisk together eggs, whipping cream, salt, peppers and nutmeg. Pour into the crust; sprinkle with remaining gouda and cheddar cheeses.
Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes or until set. Let stand for about 10 minutes before slicing.
