Bacon and Mushroom Quiche

This bacon and mushroom quiche recipe has been written by TBK contributor, Renee! This looks so good. – RandaBacon and Mushroom Quiche via The Bewitchin KitchenWhen I owned a bake shop, we had a booth every Saturday at our local market.  Aside from our cakes, pastries and cupcakes, we sold an incredible amount of quiche.  The idea was a suggestion from a lady who worked in the kitchen.  She shared her recipe with me and told me to bake a few up to see how customers liked them.  They were so successful, that we put them on our regular baking rotation and never looked back.  Each Friday night we had staff who came in only to prepare and bake quiche in all sizes and flavors.  It was always the first item to sell out on Saturdays.  This Bacon and Mushroom Quiche was by far, one of our most popular items and for good reason!  It’s a smooth and creamy quiche base, loaded with Canadian bacon, cheddar cheese, mushrooms, and peppers.

One of the great things about quiche is that it comes together fairly quickly and dinner can be on the table in 40 minutes time.  It pairs beautifully with some buttery toast and a fresh garden salad too, for a simple but delicious meal.  They also freeze exceptionally and make a super quick and healthy reheated lunch.  We sold hundreds of 5-inch quiches to customers who put them in the freezer for easy lunch and dinner meals throughout the week.

I still make quiche quite often at home too.   The flavor options are limitless.  And, quiche can be prepared ahead of time and warmed in the oven just before serving.  Since we are a brunch loving family, quiche fits perfectly on the menu, so that we have time to focus on other food preparations that morning.

And guys, Canadian bacon?  If I haven’t told you all of the reasons why quiche is the best ever long weekend or weeknight dish, perhaps I’ve got your attention with little morsels of Canadian bacon?  And pieces of cremini mushrooms and cheese?   It truly is a fully loaded egg-ceptional meal to be shared.  Had to throw that in there somewhere!  Happy quiche making friends!
