Country Quiche

Eggs, cheese, ham, bacon, and onion all baked together in a creamy custard in a deep dish pie shell to create this delicious Country Quiche. So hearty, flavorful, and an easy meal the whole family will love.

You can really add anything to this quiche recipe; other vegetables, different meats, or seasonings. But ham, bacon, and cheese is our favorite way to do it and what my whole family likes.

Quiche is a great brunch recipe! But it is definitely not limited to just brunch! We love it for any meal of the day. We really love breakfast in general for any meal. Plus all my kiddos eat breakfast meals really well. They also like this Farmer's Omelet a lot too!

This Country Quiche recipe starts with a parbake on the deep dish pie crust. Prick the pie crust a few times and then place in the oven for 5 minutes to start off the recipe.

In the meantime, melt the butter in a small skillet on the stove and cook the onions for 2 to 3 minutes, so they have a translucent look.

After the crust is done, remove it from the oven and set aside.

Then it is time to all the ingredients for the custard filling. So using a medium bowl, add the heavy cream, the eggs, garlic salt, pepper, and ground mustard and mix well together. Add the cooked onions into the custard blend and mix them in.

Next it is time to put together the quiche. So add a layer of half the bacon, ham, and cheese in the parbaked pie crust. Then add half the custard mixture. Then repeat with the layers with the other half of the ingredients.

Place on a baking sheet incase of any spillage while baking and place in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes at 375F. Then reduce heat to 350F and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes.

Let the Country Quiche set and slightly cool for about 30 minutes before serving.
