Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 6 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 (8 oz) block gruyere grated (I used smoked Red Apple Cheese)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cayenne
  • Chives optional for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Lay bacon in an 8" oven safe cast iron skillet*. Cook over medium heat until crispy (cook 2 pieces at a time). Remove bacon, but keep the grease. Crumble bacon and set aside.
  • Add in diced onion. Cook for 5 minutes, or until tender.
  • Add in garlic. Saute for 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Stir in the cheese, salt, nutmeg, cayenne, bacon, and onions.
  • Grease skillet and pour mixture into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 20 - 30 minutes or until the egg mixture has set. You can check this with a toothpick. Or you can see once the egg mixture isn’t jiggly. Baking time may vary depending on pan you use. I used the hot skillet.
  • Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

Notes

*If you don't have a cast iron skillet, that's ok! Just use a regular saute pan for cooking the bacon/onions and use an 8" round baking pan to bake the quiche.
