Fresh apple pairs perfectly with Cheddar cheese, bacon, and sage in this easy, brunch-ready, homemade quiche.
- 1 (15 ounce) package unbaked pie crust
- ½ (8 ounce) package bacon
- ½ small onion, finely chopped
- 1 large apple - peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
- ¾ cup milk
- ½ cup sour cream
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon
- ½ (8 ounce) package shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1 tablespoon dried sage
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Press pie crust into the bottom and up the sides of an 11-inch tart pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and let cool.
- Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Crumble.
- Heat bacon grease in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add apple and cook until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in bacon.
- Whisk milk, sour cream, eggs, sea salt, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
- Layer apple mixture, Cheddar cheese, and egg mixture in the prepared crust. Sprinkle sage over top.
- Bake in the preheated oven until set, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
