Bacon Jalapeno Cheddar Quiche is a scrumptious breakfast or brunch dish with a slightly spicy kick. Garnish with salsa and sour cream for a delicious bite!
This quiche is inspired by an omelet served at one of my favorite breakfast spots. Thick cut bacon, jalapenos, scallions, and cheddar cheese come together for a flavor combination that is one of my absolute favorites. Bacon and cheddar always pair perfectly together, and the jalapenos bring a bit of spice to this quiche. Garnish with sour cream and salsa, this quiche is absolutely scrumptious!
Quiches are relatively easy to make and the flavor combinations are endless. I like to bake my quiches in a tart pan, like this one, because I think it gives the quiche a fancy look. I typically use store-bought pie crust because it saves a little time, but homemade is delicious too! If you have a favorite pie crust recipe, please use it for this recipe. Once the pie crust is prepared, simply layer the ingredients into the crust and top with the egg and cream mixture. Bake the quiche until just set in the middle, and a delicious, savory breakfast or brunch will be ready.
This quiche is so delicious that I can’t eat just one slice! This is great for breakfast but is also perfect for a brunch gathering. Start your weekend off with this Bacon Jalapeno Cheddar Quiche or make it for eating during the week.
