There is no quick midweek dinner quite like an easy Thermomix egg & bacon quiche. It honestly takes no time at all and tastes amazing. We usually serve our quiche with steamed vegetables or a salad (depending on the weather!). And it makes the best leftovers for lunch the next day.
This recipe also freezes really well so it's a great idea to make one on the weekend and freeze it in individual portions for a 'grab and run' lunch on the go. This is a really versatile recipe, so you can substitute the bacon for salami, add in a bit of feta, baby spinach or sundried tomatoes, or even use leftover roast chicken and corn. Yum!
I like to use a basic olive oil pastry for this recipe - which is incredibly simple to make in the Thermomix. But if you're running short on time, you can always grab a pre-made pastry shell from the supermarket. Speaking of pastry!! Whenever I'm making pastry, I always make a couple of batches in one go and freeze the rest. That way there's always pastry ready whenever I need it. Biggest time saver ever!
Oh and if you'd like your quiche to be a bit richer, you can use cream instead of milk. But to be honest, I always use light milk and it's absolutely delicious.

Hi Wendy, yes it is a fan forced oven 🙂
This was delicious and my fussy daughter loved it. Does anyone know the nutritional information for this recipe ie calories?
Made this last night. So easy and delicious, including making the pastry. Thanks!

Yay! Thank you!
Made this again tonight. Love it when no one complains about what I put in front of hem and when the eat the entire meal (quiche and salad).
Yet another win from thermobliss. Thank you!
I love all your recipes. If I add some extra ingredients like corn and spinach, should I up the egg/milk quantity at all?
This was sensational, but next time I'll roll the pastry thinner, as at 1.5cm thick, there was a thick raw layer.
I made this tonight and my husband, who is not a quiche lover at all, ate copious amounts of it and declared it was the best quiche he had ever had!! You've converted him!
Do you think this recipe would work as a slab without pastry? Thinking of making it for a party...like a zucchini slice...
Hmm I don't see why not!!! Just make sure it's in a non-stick pan! xx
