I know I’m not the only person out there who LOVES BRUNCH! It is the best meal to get together with friends and family and just hang out and enjoy some delicious food. Quiche is a dish that I see a lot at brunches and even breakfasts but I did a little twist with a bacon lattice top. Which made this dish a show stopper! The only complaint I had was that it was a little tough to cut and the bacon kept it soooooo hot. Next time I think I could crumble some bacon on top and call it good but if your having company and want your dish to impress do an easy lattice with your bacon strips and your guests will be raving about how fancy you are! Enjoy!
Maple Bacon Breakfast Pie
- 1 Pie Crust
- 2 cups 2% milk
- 4 large eggs
- 3 green onions, sliced
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 2 cups cooked diced potatoes, or hashbrowns
- salt and pepper to taste
- 10 slices thick bacon
- maple syrup for brushing
- Preheat the oven 350F
- Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
- Add cheese, hash browns, green onions and crumbled bacon. Stir to combine.
- Put the pie crust in the bottom of a 9 inch pie dish.
- Pour egg mixture into pie pan. Bake for 35-40 mins. Make sure the quiche is firm enough to lay the bacon on top of it. NOTE: you can put strips of foil around the crust edges to prevent burning.
- Increase temp to 450F.
- Remove foil on the edges of the quiche. Weave the bacon into a lattice on top of the pie. Brush the strips of bacon with a little maple syrup.
- Bake for 15 minutes until bacon is done. If you like your bacon extra crispy pop it under the broiler for a few minutes until your desired crispiness.
- Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
I served mine with some fruit, extra bacon and english muffins or bun buns as my daughter named them!
