Broccoli, Bacon, and Caramelized Onion Quiche

You guys…this dish is AMAZING!  It is my new go-to breakfast.  Breakfast is the hardest meal of the day for me with the little one.  There are days when I don’t eat until after 10am!  This is no bueno.  So, to Pinterest I went looking for some things that I could make that would last a few days.  I found a winner!


I cannot take claim for this recipe.  While I love to cook, I don’t typically create my own recipes but I almost always modify those that I find.  You can find the original quiche here.  I have a few recipes from Jessica’s site, howsweeteats.com and  I am pretty sure I have loved everything I have tried.

Quiche is one of those things that I hated as a kid.  If I remember correctly, the ONLY time my mom would make separate food for us kids was when she made quiche.  Otherwise it was eat it or go hungry, with love 😉  As I have grown older tastes have changed and there are some really good things out there!  Quiche is now one of those things.


My modifications:

  • For the crust I used Annie’s Crescent Roll dough instead of traditional pie dough.  The recipe does include how to make dough but I was all about pre-made dough this time.  Next time I will follow the crust recipe or buy actual pie crust.  The crescent roll dough tastes good but it isn’t as flaky and it stays kind of moist.  Which makes me wonder, how would flaky biscuit dough work?!  Maybe I’ll try it next time
  • I used regular broccoli instead of broccolini because I already have a ton of it.  Also, to save some time I did not pre-roast it.  I eyeballed the amount I used too, about 3/4 cup.
  • I only used one cup of heavy whipping cream instead of one and a half.

I ended up having a little left over bacon, potatoes, and cheese so I ate it as a snack which the quiche cooked with some salsa.  Yum!  Make this and tell me how much you love it!
