Avocado bacon crustless quiche is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Cheese, bacon, and avocado is an amazing combination!
I love to make different versions of quiche because it’s so quick and easy to prepare, especially when the quiche is crustless. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good flakey pie crust as much as the next girl. But, I don’t like the extra calories it adds as well as the extra time it takes to make it.
The base of this quiche is simply eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. That’s how I do all my quiche variations. Then, I just add whatever fun flavorings I have available.
Today I went with crumbled bacon, chopped avocado, and shredded mozzarella cheese. Let me tell you, that’s a winning combination! You could put those three things on anything and it would taste good. 🙂
I prepared the bacon for this quiche myself. This is how I did it.
Line a large baking sheet with foil and lay six slices of bacon on it. Bake it at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate and blot up as much of the grease as possible. Chop it into small pieces.
The bacon may not be as done as you like it after baking for 15 minutes, but it will continue cooking inside the quiche.
To make this dish even easier, you could use the packaged pre-cooked and crumbled bacon.
