How to Make Bacon and Blue Cheese Quiche

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° F.
  2. Fry bacon until slightly crispy. Drain fat, chop into quarter size pieces and set aside.
  3. Place pie crust in greased 9’’ quiche dish and bake blind for approx. 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, beat eggs in a mixing bowl. Add cream, cream cheese and blue cheese and mix well.

  6. Remove pie crust from oven and pour in filling mix. Return to oven and cook for a further 30 minutes.
