White flower shaped plate with a piece of bacon, spinach and red pepper quiche and two orange slices on it. There is a 9x13 glass Pyrex baking dish with a quiche that is missing one piece. There is a small wooden bowl with fresh whole cranberries, a bowl or orange slices, and a cutting board with cheese that's been cut into snowflake shapes with a cookie cutter.

Simple & Delicious Egg & Cheese Quiche

I love making quiche because it can either feed a crowd, or can be put away and served as leftovers the next day. It can also be made the day before you plan to serve and reheated very easily, so it’s a great make-ahead option for breakfast or brunch. I make this egg & cheese quiche every Christmas Eve and we refrigerate it overnight and reheat on Christmas morning after the girls open their stockings. I like to make it with bacon (always bacon!) as well as some sauteed baby spinach and red bell pepper. The possibilities really are endless with what you can add to yours.

Ingredients

  • Quiche:
  • 9 large eggs

  • 1 c whole milk

  • 1 1/2 c shredded cheese – I use Monterey Jack

  • 2 packages of crescent roll dough

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1/4 tbsp butter to grease your baking dish

  • Optional add ins:
  • 7 strips crispy bacon

  • 1 c sautéed baby spinach

  • 1/2 c sautéed bell pepper

  • 1/2 c grape of cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 3/4 c chopped ham

  • 1 c sauteed or roasted broccoli

Directions

  • Start by prepping your add-ins. I typically make bacon in the oven and I sauté some baby spinach with chopped red peppers and garlic.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a 9×13 baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, add eggs and milk and season them with salt and pepper. 
  • Beat your egg mixture for about 4-5 mins until it’s very bubbly.
  • Spread crescent roll dough onto your baking dish to make your crust. It should cover the entire bottom and come up the sides of your baking dish. 
  • If you’re adding any veggies, spread these evenly over the dough.
  • Add cheese in an even layer.
  • If you’re adding meat, spread that over the cheese.
  • Carefully pour the egg mixture in and then bake your quiche on the middle rack of a 350 F degree oven.
  • Bake for 30 mins and then cover it loosely with foil and bake for another 5-10 mins. It’s done when the middle is set and the quiche is golden brown.
