Cauliflower and Turkey Bacon Quiche

Ingredients

    • ½ package (14.1 oz.) refrigerated pie crusts
    • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
    • 8 oz. turkey bacon, diced
    • ½ small onion, peeled and diced
    • 4 cups chopped cauliflower
    • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    • 4 eggs
    • 1½ cups whole milk
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
    • ¼ tsp. dried thyme

Cooking Instructions

  1. 1Preheat oven to 350ºF. Press pie crust into a deep-dish pie pan and set aside.

  2. 2Add olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. Fry bacon until crispy. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Drain all but 1 tablespoon fat from the skillet and return to the heat.

  3. 3Add onion and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower and sauté until the cauliflower is slightly translucent and beginning to soften, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Toss with the bacon and cheese. Spread evenly in the pie shell.

  4. 4In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs with milk, salt, pepper, thyme and nutmeg. Pour over the cauliflower mixture.

  5. 5Place the quiche in the oven and bake 50-55 minutes until the top is lightly brown and the center is slightly puffed and set. Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes before serving. Serve warm.
