Green Chile Bacon Quiche Recipe

Course Breakfast, Main Course
Cuisine French
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 4-5 Eggs
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 2 Small Cans mild green chiles
  • 1 pkg. Bacon
  • 1 Frozen Pie Crust

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325°
    Cook the bacon in a large pan to desired crispness. Keep in mind that the bacon will continue to bake in the Quiche for up to an hour, so slightly undercooked works great.
  • In mixer or by hand whisk 5 eggs, 1 cup heavy whipping cream, salt, cumin, garlic powder and black pepper. 
     
  • Place 1 cup of the shredded cheese in the bottom of the pie crust.
     
  • Layer bacon crumbled or in strips on top of the cheese.
     
  • Next layer two small cans of mild green chiles over the bacon.
  • Add the second cup of shredded cheese over the green chiles.
  • Pour the egg mixture on top of everything, remembering to press the cheese that has floated to the top back under the egg mixture with a fork. 
  • Bake at 325° for 45-60 minutes, being careful not to overbake. The finished texture will be creamy, but fully cooked.
