Bacon and Bell Pepper Quiche is the perfect recipe for breakfast or dinner. Packed with cheese, bacon and bell peppers, it is full of delicious flavor.
One of my favorite things to make is quiche. I love how versatile it can be and I modeled this quiche after an absolutely delicious omelet that I have to go get every time I visit my parents. In the little town they live in, there is a small breakfast place with about 8 tables inside and probably another 12 outside. They have an omelet that is packed full of bell peppers, bacon, potatoes and cheese. Omelets are not my forte, so I decided to take the aspects of this dish I love and make it into a quiche. To keep it easy (and a little healthier) I cut out the potatoes for this dish.
Breakfast for dinner is a staple in our house. One reason I love it is because in the morning, I don’t really feel like taking time to prepare something like this Bacon and Bell Pepper Quiche. I’m usually making some scrambled eggs and a biscuit really quick and then moving along with my day. But when I make breakfast for dinnerm I like to make something a little more exciting. The other night we enjoyed this Bacon and Bell Pepper Quiche with my Three Cheese Grits Casserole and it was the perfect combination for breakfast for dinner.
This Bacon and Bell Pepper Quiche is made with a pie crust but you could do it without to save some calories. I love the options you have with this dish.

Tyler and I both loved how this quiche turned out. It really reminded me of the omelet that I love so much so I was happy to be able to recreate it.
