BLT Quiche Recipe

Slice high-quality bacon, cook in a non-stick skillet until cooked through but not crispy. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

Meanwhile sauté finely chopped yellow onion with a small amount of bacon fat until soft and slightly browned. Set aside on paper towels to cool. Combine bacon and onion.

Spray a pie dish with baking spray (cooking spray with flour added). Form pie dough (homemade or store-bought) in the pie dish.

Add bacon onion mixture.

My ratio for quiche custard base is:

  • 5 fresh whole large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups of warm light cream
  • 1 T flour
  • salt and pepper
I beat these ingredients with an electric hand mixer.
Pour custard base over the bacon onion mixture. Bake at 350° for about an hour, maybe a little longer, until just cooked through.

Let quiche cool completely to room temperature.

Slice the quiche into wedges before topping with the salad. Top the bacon quiche with tomato wedges and mixed lettuces tossed with mayonnaise or ranch dressing, salt and pepper to taste. A pie server is perfect for serving. This is a great dish for a brunch buffet as it is served at room temperature, it’s colorful, whimsical and delicious!

  1. You always get my imagination going. Love the idea of taking a favorite food in one form, and turning it into another.

  2. Great idea! I love all the flavors in the quiche, and topping it with the fresh salad is just perfect!

    Beautiful pictures!

  3. Love BLTS anything. BLT sandwich, BLT salad, heck would have BLT soup when I figure it out. BLT quiche is inspired and looks scrumptious.

  4. I love quiche and this one is making my mouth water. I expecially like the salad on top! Wonderfully delicious. Mumzie

  5. This is absolute genius!!! Combining two thing that I love. BLT and Eggs. Moving to the top of the "must make" list. Simple yet, so elegantly presented.

  6. Thanks so much for this recipe! My mother LOVES BLTs like no one else… now I know exactly what I'll be making her for Mother's Day Brunch next year!

  7. Lori Lynn,
    You've been busy!
    How fantastic was that Blogging/Foodie convention. Looks like you had a great time. Your photos are great, I've enjoyed it very much.

    And this recipe. OMG.Yum.

  8. I've missed your stunning food.

    Thanks for the virtual trip to the Foodbuzz event. I really wanted to go but we are smack in the middle of semester so getting away was not an option.

  9. I love the sound of this. And with some of our hone cured pancetta or bacon – mmmmm even better!

  10. Foodastic Idea! 🙂

    I am addicted to BLTs – every August would I celebrate the return of homegrown tomatoes and with them a proper BLT. I sorely miss that. No matter how hard I try, BLTs made here in Europe never taste the same as they do on American soil! What I cannot complain about are those huge Sicilian caperberries they got here, that's garnish I love to eat! 🙂
