Quiche is one of the easiest, meals to make for brunch or dinner! Leftover Chicken & Bacon Quiche is so tasty and the addition of four different cheeses makes it moist and oh sooo cheesy!
Do you love quiche? We love quiche! In 1982 a best selling book called, “Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche” by Bruce Feirstein, was talked about often. This is an excerpt from Wikipedia describing the book, which I thought was pretty funny; “It popularized the term quiche-eater, referring to a man who is a dilettante, a trend-chaser, an over-anxious conformist to fashionable forms of lifestyle, and socially correct behaviors and opinions, one who eschews (or merely lacks) the traditional masculine virtue of tough self-assurance. A ‘traditional’ male might enjoy the ironically not so exotic egg-and-bacon pie if his wife served it to him; a quiche-eater, or Sensitive New Age Guy is alleged to make the dish himself, call it by its French name quiche, and serve it to his female life partner to demonstrate his empathy with the Women’s Movement. Presumably, he would also wash up afterwards. These are also implied examples of ‘women’s work’, and an attempt to taint the male character by association with such knowledge and activities.”
The book’s humor derives from the fears and confusion of contemporary 1980s middle-class men about how they ought to behave, after a decade of various forms of feminist critique on traditional male roles and beliefs.”
LOL! I never really knew what the book was about. I might have to get a copy. It sounds pretty funny! I digress, though, the reason I brought the book up is that I never quite got the title!
I mean seriously, why in God’s name would anyone not like quiche?! It’s eggs and cheese and whatever other goodies you have in the house to throw into it! The other added attraction is, of course, lots of them have BACON! At least lots of them that I make, and let’s face it, everything is better with bacon!
Making Chicken & Bacon Quiche
They literally come together in a few minutes (with the help of my frozen crunchy bacon in the freezer) …. (and the store bought pie crust and leftover chicken.) Then just throw them in the oven for about and hour or so, let it rest for a few minutes and serve it with a quick side salad! It’s also great heated up for breakfast, lunch or dinner the next day!

Chicken and Bacon Quiche is an easy weeknight meal that takes 5 minutes to prep!
- 4 eggs
- 1.5 cup milk
- 1.5 cups cheeses, mixed I used mozzarella, parmesan, sharp white cheddar, colby jack Any cheese you have in the house will work
- 1 cup diced or shredded chicken
- 4 slices bacon, crisped I make extra and freeze so that I always in the freezer
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 refrigerated pie crust
Mix eggs and milk until well combined. Add the rest of the ingredients and combine. Pour into pie crust. Don't overfill or the filling will spill in oven, while it bakes.
Bake at 350°F for about 60 minutes. Eggs should be set but the middle can jiggle a little when shaken from side to side. If you have leftover filling, place it a ramekin and bake for about 30 minutes, or until set.
