Meat Lover's Skillet Quiche is loaded with crispy bacon, smoked ham, ground sausage, and two types of creamy cheese. It's a meat lover's paradise!
Why You'll Love This Recipe
Since I named this blog Quiche My Grits, it's a good bet I love making any type of quiche! Meat Lover's Skillet Quiche is a recipe I came up with for my meat-loving hubby. He loves this quiche more than any other meal I've made...and that says a lot.
You'll love this easy quiche recipe if you're a fan of ham, bacon and sausage. But you'll also like the creamy filling and taste of a dash of steak seasoning. (ad) Steak seasoning is awesome in this dish! It makes this quiche come alive with sassy flavor.
There are 9 ingredients in this quiche, but they come together quickly. You'll need ground sausage, bacon, deli ham, eggs, sour cream, steak seasoning, shredded swiss gruyere blend cheese, shredded cheddar cheese and a refrigerated pie crust. Quantities are listed in the recipe card below.
Can I Substitute Cheeses?
Yes, feel free to substitute another white cheese (like Monterey Jack) for the swiss gruyere blend if you can't find it in your local store.
Do I Need to Use a Cast Iron Skillet?
A cast iron skillet is not necessary to make this recipe, but it helps brown the crust since it conducts heat. If you'd like to use a pie plate, make sure it's a 9 inch deep dish style, and be sure to pre bake the crust before adding the filling.
How To Make It
Brown the sausage and bacon in a skillet. Drain and crumble. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, blend eggs, sour cream and steak seasoning together until creamy.
Fold in sausage, bacon, ham, and both cheeses to make filling. Mix well.
Roll out a refrigerated pie crust until it fits into a 12" cast iron skillet . Press into the bottom and up the sides. Use fork to press edges into side of skillet. Pierce bottom of crust in several places with fork.
Pour filling into unbaked pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes until quiche is set, but still a little wobbly in the middle. Cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
Meat Lover's Skillet Quiche is so versatile, it can be served for breakfast, brunch, dinner, or a light lunch. I like to serve it with a side of fruit, and if I'm feeling extra sassy, a delicious Blueberry Muffin makes a great impression.
Quiche is the perfect choice when planning a baby shower, bridal brunch, or other special event. It tastes amazing for lunch with my Strawberry Pecan Salad, and delicious on Christmas morning with a Sassy Fruit Platter.
On a keto diet? Feel free to make a crustless quiche, or frittata, which is made the exact same way without using a crust. Store leftover quiche in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
