Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 2 pre-made pie crusts, refrigerated
  • 8 ounces (half of 1 package) bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups half-and-half
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  • Large Skillet
  • Large Bowl
  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 425°F. When the oven is preheated, place the pie crusts in the oven, directly on the rack, and bake for 15 minutes. When baking is complete, remove pie crusts from oven, transfer to sheet tray and set aside. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.

  • Step 2

    Place a medium skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the bacon and cook until crisp and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to cool. Remove all but 2 tablespoons of bacon grease from the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low, then add the onions and cook stirring often until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • Step 3

    Assemble the hand mixer attachment on the power base, then install the whisk.

  • Step 4

    In a large bowl, add the half-and-half, eggs, salt, and pepper. Press power to begin mixing on speed 1 and then gradually increase to speed 3. Mix until evenly combined, about 2 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Evenly distribute the onion and bacon between the crusts. Then top each with ½ cup of cheese and the prepared egg mixture. Transfer the sheet tray with quiches to the oven. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until eggs are set in the center.

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, remove the quiches from the oven. Cool for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
