The smell of frying bacon wafting through our house is better than a dinner bell.  One by one, each person in the family will stop into the kitchen to see what’s cookin’.  Haven’t you had that happen?  It’s pretty funny.  I get it, though.  If I’m the one cooking, I’m already appreciating the bacon and excited about the recipe.  If I’m not the one cooking, I’m definitely headed to the kitchen to see when this meal is going to be ready.  Bacon is definitely one of the things that can help gather the family around the table…all at the same time!  Today I’m cooking a Crustless Bacon Quiche.  You’re going to love it because you can make it the day before for easy serving at breakfast or dinner.  I actually ended up serving this for dinner with a salad.  Hello, versatility!

I love how such simple ingredients can make something so flavorful and so easily!  I’ve been making this recipe for years as a classic quiche Lorraine but it occurred to me that some people might not know that a quiche Lorraine is really just bacon, eggs, cheese, onions, spices and milk/cream, cut, stirred and baked.  Bacon is the star of this recipe.  It deserves an updated name to reflect what it really is, don’t you think?  Thinking of it in a new way might get people who haven’t tried it before to try it…and they should because it’s delicious!  Plus, I got rid of the crust in case you don’t have one on hand and don’t want to try and make one, which I just don’t see myself doing.

I’m using HORMEL® Black Label Bacon.  This bacon cooked so evenly!  That made it easy to work with because I needed to chop it up next.

It was so crisp, it chopped up perfectly too.  You use 12 slices in this recipe, but I made 13.  Um…one for the cook, right?  Delicious!

BLACK LABEL® Bacon features exceptional varieties that never compromise on quality or taste. This includes traditional bacon varieties, fully cooked bacon, thick cut bacon & Canadian bacon.

Does your family cook together?  It’s never too early or late to start.  When my kids were little, this is just the kind of recipe where I would enlist their help.  They can break the bacon (I chopped it with a knife this time) and stir the ingredients.  I liked having them help because it gave me a chance to compliment their contribution, listen to their day, give them cooking tips and later share the meal we cooked.  It’s a great way to make memories and hear things you might otherwise miss.  My daughter is in college and my sons are in high school now but we still do things this way.  Plus, they can cook on their own too!

I’m using a deep dish pie pan.  Now it’s ready to go in the oven!  While this was cooking my sons came home from their sports and my husband came home from work.  They were thrilled that we were having quiche.  YAY!  A meal everyone is excited about makes it easier to get them around the dinner table.  You can’t always cook with your family but you can make time to eat together as often as possible.  You learn so much about each other by simply sharing a meal.
