Bacon and Ham Quiche

Quiche rates right up there as one of my favorite foods. I’ve tried many different recipes and this one is one of the best! The bacon and ham combo is perfect with a little green onion. I have been known to go pretty heavy on the bacon….just because! Yeah, I love bacon. Overnight guests always love it when you pull a quiche out of the oven.

You don’t have to get up extra early in the morning to make this quiche. I have a couple of ideas for you. First, you can make it and bake it ahead of time and either freeze for longer storage or refrigerate it over night. Then just warm gently in the oven. Another option is to line your pan with pastry and place that in the refrigerator, then fry the bacon, ham and onion mixture and set that in the refrigerator also. I usually will wait until morning to blend the cheese, dairy and eggs together. Then fill the pie pan and bake. It might take a few minutes longer to bake this way but you have cut down on the prep time for getting it in the oven. I have found that making two at the same time is easy also. I then freeze one for whenever. We like quiche for any meal….
