Wonderful Brunch Recipe....

Today was a lazy kind of day around here, but I finally got up and fixed something to eat, and ended up making a delicious brunch. I made a Bacon and Cheddar Puff Pastry Quiche. It turned out great, and of course, I had to fix fried potatoes with onions and cheddar to go with it....Yum!

                                                   Bacon and Cheddar Puff Pastry Quiche

1 Sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
6 eggs
6 slices bacon
1/4 cup chopped onions
2 cloves minced garlic (optional)
1/2 cup whipping cream OR 1/4 cup plain yogurt mixed with 1/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 375*

Place the puff pastry sheet in an 8x8 inch baking pan, covering the bottom and sides. Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry to a crisp in a skillet, remove to paper towel to drain. Reserving some of the bacon grease, add onions to skillet and saute for about 8-10 minutes on med-low heat, or until very soft but not browned. Whisk together the eggs, cream or milk and yogurt, salt and pepper. Fold in the garlic, cheese, bacon, and onions. Pour into pastry crust and bake for 30 minutes or  until eggs are set and edges of puff pastry is golden brown. Let rest for 5 minutes, cut and serve with fried potatoes on the side.


  1. YUM - that looks like 'comfort food' to me! Mind if I borrow your recipe? I'm needing some of that good stuff right about now. It's cold here in Texas, too - not quite as cold as Tennessee. My oldest son lives in Nashville. He's keepin' me posted on ya'll's weather!

    Your horses are beautiful - I especially like the paint!

  2. Sure Vickie, go right ahead.... I really think you will like it, and the great thing about quiches, you can really add or omit anything you like, the possibilities are endless. Thank you~~our two kids are grown and gone, so our horses and mules are just like our kids, and the paint is special to me, I raised him from a foal, he's a good boy, LOL.....
