Bacon and Potato Quiche

Don’t miss the GIVEAWAY at the bottom of this post! #SimplyHolidays

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 use the bacon grease and use it to fry up smashed up tater tots instead of potatoes. I only use cheddar since I have a kid who doesn’t like Swiss. I also added an extra egg and turned it into 2 frozen deep dish quiches instead of one. I’ve experimented with herbs and we like sage or thyme added in. Dry mustard also makes it yummy. It has gotten RAVE reviews in anll variations and I’ve made one for us and one to give away almost every week since I first tried it.

  2. I’m making with a puff pastry, shredded mozzerella, potatoes, onions, bacon, couple of carrots – can’t wait to taste it !!!

  3. I hate it when people change everything about a recipe and then gripe about the results. So I had to improvise a bit and it still came out fabulous! No hash browns at the store so I used mini tater tots and browned them up with the onions in the skillet. I make horrid pie crusts so I got Marie Calendar’s deep dish but they were soooooo small a double batch made 3 pies. And I frequently use Knorr chicken bullion in place of salt which I did here. Son won’t touch Swiss cheese so we used all cheddar. I gave away 2nd and 3rd pies and everyone raved and wants an encore pie very soon. Maybe one of the best quiches I’ve ever made and I make them a lot!

  4. My family loved this! This year I made 3 quiche recipes for our brunch. I prebaked all three crusts the night before, cooled them and wrapped them in plastic wrap and left them on the counter overnight. Made everything so much easier the next morning, as all ingredients were prepped ahead also. Quiches came out perfect.

  5. I really love following you! You have some terrific recipes! I just wish you could include nutritional information. Regardless, keep posting!!!

    I made this as a special treat for my husband’s birthday week. I (or you) have created a quiche monster! He loves this so much and I love that its so easy to make! It definitely feels like a special occasion treat but it’s so easy I can make it anytime! Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

  7. I used Potatoes O’Brien since it has bell peppers in addition to onion already in it. Still added the extra inion as per the recipe. Mmmmmmm mmmmmmm good!

  8. This recipe is Awesome!! I’ve been making the same quiche for years and it is delicious, but, this one tops it! It will definitely be the new favorite for family gatherings!!❤️

    This was delicious! The only modification I made was to add a few diced up breakfast sausage along with the bacon. My family of 4 has 2 picky eaters, but they loved it and everyone had 2 pieces each. I usually have leftover quiche, but not this time 🙂

  10. This looks delicious! Can I use a frozen pie crust? Do u think I would adjust the time to 45 mins to an hour? Can’t wait to try this!!!! Thx

      Yes, you can use frozen pie crust. If you let it sit out on the counter for 5 minutes or so, you should not need to increase the cooking time. They thaw really fast.
