Apple Bacon Gouda Quiche

READY IN: 55mins




  • Line a glass pie plate or glass cake pan with crust, crimping top to edges of pan.
  • Preheat oven to 350 ° Fahrenheit.
  • Halve, core, and peel apple, then mince and scatter in bottom of pie plate.
  • Top with minced bacon and chopped Gouda cheese.
  • Whisk eggs in mixing bowl with half and half, then stir in nutmeg, salt and pepper. I recommend using a whole nutmeg with microplane grater, grating enough to dust the custard mixture lightly.
  • Pour custard mixture into pie plate and shake the plate a little to even it out and tap any ingredients that poke up under the wet custard mix.
  • When oven is properly hot, place pie plate on a supporting pan and into oven on a middle shelf.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, then check doneness with a butter knife to see if custard is firm. If it needs more time, go in 5 minute intervals, covering the crust if it browns excessively.
  • Allow to sit undisturbed out of the oven for 20 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve warm.
