Meat Lovers Quiche Recipe

Meat Lovers Quiche Recipe @Barbara Bakes

Quiche loaded with ham, bacon, sausage and cheese in a tender, flaky crust. A perfect breakfast for a birthday, or breakfast, lunch or dinner any day of the week.

We like to celebrate birthdays all day long at our house. The birthday person gets to pick whatever they want to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Usually everyone wants strawberry crepes, but since my husband and my oldest son’s birthdays are only three days apart we’re having crepes for my son’s birthday, and my husband requested quiche for his birthday. He said real men do eat quiche when it’s loaded with meat.

How to make Meat Lovers Quiche

There was only a little bit of Swiss cheese left in the fridge, so I decided to use three different kinds of cheese, Swiss, Parmesan, and cheddar.

I like to put the filling in the par-baked crust and then pour the eggs on top. Then the meat and cheese are more evenly distributed throughout the quiche. After I added the fillings to the crust on this quiche, I was worried that the eggs wouldn’t fit, but it was perfect.

If the quiche is getting too brown on top, you can cover it with foil. Be sure and check the middle of the quiche with a toothpick or a knife to see if the center is cooked, similarly to how you would check a cake to see if it’s done.

Meat Lovers Quiche

Yield: 8 servings

Meat Lovers Quiche


  • 1 homemade or store-bought single-crust pie dough
  • 6 large eggs, well beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup cooked ground sausage
  • 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 2 large green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheese


Preheat oven to 425º. Press crust into a 9 inch quiche pan, prick crust and bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Sprinkle the bacon, sausage, ham, green onions, and cheese evenly on top of precooked crust. Pour the egg mixture on top.

Bake for 20 minutes until the center is set and a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

    Hi Barb,

    I love your recipes they are so down to earth and some my mother used to make.
    I love to cook and I think you do too. sounds like it when your family has birthdays you go all out and that is a nice wife and mother.
    Keep up the good work with your delicious recipes!

    My boyfriend and I made this a few weeks ago and it was fantastic! Very easy to put together and had great flavor. He doesn’t think a meal is a ‘meal’ without meat, so this was perfect for him. He ate HALF the quiche the first night and told me it was his favorite dinner that we’d made so far. High praise from someone who loves to eat! Thanks for the great recipe!

    The oven temp needs to be 375 or 400. 425 for 30 minutes torched the crust while leaving the eggs runny

      I’ve made many different versions of this quiche over the years and 425° always works great for me. Of course every oven is different, and using different pans will produce different results. Here’s some tips for the future. You’ll want to start cooking the quiche at 425° and then reduce the temperature after about 15 minutes. So the crust gets the high blast of heat and stays crispy instead of the fat melting. Also, if your crust is getting too brown, just cover your quiche with foil.

    I made this over the past weekend, and it was delicious! I used the pie crust from Pioneer Woman, and oh my the meats, just yum. I will def. make this again.

    I never enjoyed quiche until my husband introduced me to his favorite quiche. We’ve eaten the same quiche recipe for the last ten years. I saw your recipe and was so excited to try another variation! Thank you so much for sharing!

    I made this last night for dinner, {made the crust from scratch, too} for my picky 17 year-old daughter. On the first bite my seventeen year-old son said, “Keep this recipe, Mom!” Needless to say, both 17 year-olds loved it. We may add some mushrooms next time, just because we love them. Everybody needs to try this recipe out on their families.

    I was just wanting a quiche recipe the other day. Will definitely try this one! My mom says the whole month is her birthday!! That way every time she sees something she want, she says it is her birthday month and she can get it for herself! Like her thinking!!

    This looks so good! =)
    I havent had quiche too often, but I’m saving your recipe!

    My favorite thing to have for breakfast on my birthday is pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream!

    Happy Birthday to the boys! When I saw the title I was thinking ‘this sounds like something my husband would like.’ Then I saw your husband’s comment. Looks delicious to me.
    I always like to go out to breakfast on my Birthday and I usually order some sort of breakfast dessert which is a baked treat. I go all out all day!
