Green Chile Bacon Quiche Recipe
Breakfast, Main Course
Heavy Whipping Cream
Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Small Cans mild green chiles
Frozen Pie Crust
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.
Use 4 eggs if you are using a regular 8" pie dish, 5 eggs for a deep dish or 10" pie dish.
