Bacon and Potato Quiche is easy to whip up and makes a great addition to a holiday brunch. Roasted potatoes and onion combine with bacon to make a hearty and delicious quiche filling. A combination of Swiss cheese and cheddar cheese gives this quiche just the right amount of cheese flavor. Bacon and Potato Quiche is easy to make partially or fully in advance and leftovers can be eaten warmed in the microwave or straight out of the refrigerator for an easy meal on a hectic day.

Bacon and Potato Quiche


I’ve  always been a huge fan of quiche. What’s not to love about a savory pie with a buttery crust and a cheesy filling?

I’m always looking for ways to keep the holidays simple. Meals that can be prepared ahead of time and that make great leftovers can really help you get the most out of the holiday season. The less time spent cooking and meal planning, the more time for family games, decorating, Christmas caroling, visiting friends, and shopping for gifts.

Bacon and Potato Quiche


This Bacon and Potato Quiche is extra easy to prepare thanks to Simply Potatoes®  which are made from fresh, never frozen potatoes. They really help cut down on time spent preparing a meal since they’ve already been peeled and chopped for you.

Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes can be roasted in the oven or pan-fried to serve as a side for breakfast or dinner, or you can add them to your favorite recipe.

You may not typically think of adding potatoes to a quiche, but they taste so good, especially when combined with bacon.

I always bake a few quiches during the holidays when my kids are out of school. They tend to sleep in and be on their own clock and having a quiche in the fridge means I don’t have to worry about what they are going to eat when they wake up. And I love that quiche works equally well for breakfast , lunch, brunch, or dinner.

This recipe makes 1 9-inch quiche, but you can easily double the recipe and make two. They will keep refrigerated for 3 to 5 days.

Making some dishes in advance is just one of the things I do to help make the holidays less stressful. I also like to stock up on a variety of drinks and snacks for those unexpected guests and I like to have a few fun activities planned. Ice skating, Christmas caroling, family movie night or game night are all great ways to make memories. I also love to do a craft night and have everyone make an ornament for the Christmas tree.

  1. I’m typically not one to comment on recipes but I made this tonight and it turned out phenomenal. I’m always a little worried about trying new recipes during dinner time but I am so happy I did. I only used half the bacon and added sausage as well. My two year old helped himself to a second serving and everyone loved it. Thank you for sharing!! Adding this one to my favorites.

    I had potato quiche once in France and loved it. I’ve tried one that I found online and it wasn’t very good. This sounds great!

    1. I have made using fresh grated potato that I then fried a few minutes in a frying pan with the onion. It works just as well as the frozen potatoes.

  3. Karen VanDerwood

    Leftovers in the quiche. Recipes don’t have to be exact! Gifts as secret Santa at work and family- two gifts and then go visit a lonely widow or widower as a free gift of your time!

  4. Why stress? It’s the one time of year that should never be. Focus on what the holidays are truly all about and things fall into place.

  5. To keep our Christmas holiday season stress free, I plan out our shopping, card-sending, gift-wrapping,, baking….the works! And I say ‘no’ when necessary! 🙂

    Stress free tip for enjoying Christmas is to get gift buying done a couple months early then you can sit back and enjoy holidays without having to be in the midst of crazy holiday shopping! Thank you for this opportunity to win and good luck to all and may everyone have a Merry Christmas!!

  7. Erinn Sluka

    I buy ingredients here and there in the fall because to wait until the week of Christmas for baking you tend to find stores run out of items and it really adds up in cost at a tight time erinnsluka@gmail

    I don’t know what I’d do without Simply Potatoes! I always make a casserole the night before christmas so I can spend more time with my family Christmas morning. Happy holidays! 😀

  9. To keep stress levels down, I make as many things as I can ahead of the big day. I also hire someone to clean my house for the holiday, so that’s one less thing I have to worry about.

  10. Keri justice

    My best tip is definitely not over do it! PREPAre stuff ahead of time, so you can enjoy time with your family.

  11. Like you I love having meals made and in the freezer waiting to be popped in the oven when needed. This recipe fits that perfectly. I especially like this because it uses refrigerated pie crust and frozen potatoes. Thank you for this. It is going in my recipe box.

  12. We minimize stress by not having a huge gathering of people over. When you are very comfortable around the people who have over, the details of the dinner don’t matter as much.

  13. Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction

    This quiche looks like the perfect addition to Christmas brunch! Looks so good!

  14. I keep things very simple with decorating during the holidays. Too many decorations means more time putting things up and putting things away.

  15. i’m not sure i know what it’s like to be stress-free, but i would say start your shopping EARLY, like in JULY! 🙂

  16. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice

    I’ve always been a big fan of quiche too, it’s filling, delicious, and cheesy! I love this potato and bacon version, Christin! Looks so hearty for the holidays!

  17. I never try a new recipe before a big event. If I can’t try it ahead of time, to make sure it comes out right, then I stick with recipes I have used before.

  18. Barbara Patrick Hall

    I bake and cook ahead of time, and ask family to bring dishes. This makes the holidays less stressful!
