Bacon and Mushroom Quiche makes a wonderful breakfast, brunch, lunch or supper meal. Recipe may easily be made ahead and baked the next morning.

Quiche is actually one of my favorite simple suppers in the world. So filling and comforting, yet easy as pie to make. We love the mini quiche recipe that I shared previously for keeping a stash in the freezer ready to go, but there is something delectable about a fresh from the oven quiche recipe with a flaky crust. And friends, this Bacon and Mushroom quiche is simply amazing!

While I’ve always listed quiche as a breakfast or brunch dish, I have to tell you that my family loves them just as much for a light supper! Served with a side salad, they are just perfect!

What is Quiche?

Quiche is classically a savory dish consisting of a pie crust or tart shell that is filled with a mixture of eggs, milk or cream, cheese and a meat of some sort. More modern quiche recipes also include the option of omitting the crust for a frittata (referred to as a crustless quiche by many).

How to Make Bacon and Mushroom Quiche

For this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients

  • Pie crust – I use my homemade pie crust for this recipe. That pie crust recipe is quick, easy, fool-proof and fabulous! But, you can use a store-bought pie crust if you prefer and if you are making this recipe as a low-carb option, you can simply omit the crust.
  • Bacon – This recipe uses bacon that has been cooked and crumbled. I like to use my oven baked bacon and then quickly chop the bacon to include.
  • Mushrooms – I use baby portobello mushrooms that have been cleaned and chopped in this recipe. You can also use white mushrooms or your favorite mushroom.
  • Eggs – This recipe uses 6 whole eggs.
  • Milk or Cream – The recipe calls for heavy cream. You can also lighten the recipe by using whole milk, half-and-half, or even 2% milk. If you need, you can use a dairy-free milk alternative as well.
  • Cheese – This recipe calls for cheddar cheese. The flavor combination of bacon, mushroom, and cheddar is a classic. I also have used smoked gouda, and we all loved it.

Make Ahead Instructions

Prepare according to the recipe instructions. Allow to cool completely, wrap 2 layers of airtight freezer wrap, and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

When ready to reheat, remove the quiche from the freezer. Remove the wrap and place the quiche on a baking sheet. Place in a preheated 325º F oven and bake until warmed throughout.

Since this quiche recipe includes protein and vegetables, it really doesn’t need a great deal of side dishes to go with it.

For breakfast or brunch, I love to simply serve this quiche with fresh fruit, coffee and/or juice.

For lunch or supper, I love to serve it with a side salad.

Here’s my Bacon and Mushroom Quiche recipe.

    This quiche recipe was fantastic! My husband said to throw away all the other quiche recipes and keep only this one. I thought I could add a few more eggs and make a deep dish and a regular size quiche, but the deep dish took all 9 eggs, 8 oz chopped mushrooms the cheese and bacon. Delicious!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Thanks, AnneK. I love your husband’s comment. I’m so glad you loved this quiche recipe.

    This quiche is amazing according to my husband and my friend. The best I’ve ever had too!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      I’m so glad everyone enjoyed the quiche, Judy. Thanks!

  4. Betsey says:

    Thank you for this recipe, Robyn. It’s delicious and easy to make.

    My only suggestion is that Prep Time of 5 minutes may be realistic for a professional cook, but it’s more like 15-20 minutes unless the bacon is pre-cooked, mushrooms and onions pre-chopped, and cheese pre-shredded.

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Betsey, I’m happy you enjoyed this quiche recipe. The prep time in a recipe refers to the time it takes to follow the steps in the instructions up to the cook time. The time it takes to peel, chop, dice, melt, etc. varies so much with different people. This recipe does include pre-cooked and chopped bacon and diced onion and sliced mushrooms, etc. Thanks.

    Your quiche recipe is my go to favorite with just the right balance of eggs, milk, and cheese. I add steamed spinach and add a little red pepper and it is scrumptious. Thank-You.

      It sounds delicious with those additions, Elise! Thanks.

    Very good recipe. The only changes I made is I used pepper jack cheese as I had some to use. Added a great bite of taste.and I added only a 1/2 cup of onions. I like onions… just not so many. Personal preference.

      Thank you, Fern. I’m so glad you liked the quiche.
