Resting Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 65 minutes
Serving: 6


  • Pie Crust: Store-bought or homemade pie crust, rolled out
  • Bacon: 8 slices, diced
  • Cheese: 1 cup Gruyère cheese, grated
  • Cream Mixture:
    • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
    • 4 large eggs
    • Salt and black pepper to taste
    • Pinch of nutmeg


  1. Prepare Crust:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Press the pie crust into a 9-inch quiche or tart pan. Poke holes with a fork and parbake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  2. Cook Bacon:
    • In a skillet, cook diced bacon until crisp. Drain and let it cool.
  3. Assemble Filling:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Spread the cooked bacon evenly over the bottom of the pie crust, then sprinkle the grated Gruyère cheese on top. Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and cheese.
  4. Bake the Quiche:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the quiche is set and the top is golden. Let the quiche cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.


  • Experiment with different types of cheeses or vegetables for a personalized twist on the classic.
  • For a vegetarian version, replace bacon with sautéed mushrooms or caramelized onions.
