Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in right now.” -Unknown
A leisurely Saturday morning breakfast almost feels like a holiday to me. Being with the people I love, pancakes, sausage, COFFEE (or cold brew coffee!). Playing a board game or mapping out plans for the day. I love it, which is why I’ve been looking for ways to incorporate a little bit of “Saturday” into each morning. Slow cooker “baked” apples with salted caramel and this easy quiche recipe are two of my favorite ways to make that happen. They require very little “hands-on” time, but they add a sense of occasion to our morning meal.
Easy Bacon, Tomato, and Green Onion Quiche
The crust for this tasty quiche is made from thinly sliced potatoes. I prefer to avoid most grains and like the added fiber, potassium, and Vitamin C from the potatoes. I cook the bacon in the pan first, then remove it and arrange the potato slices along the bottom and sides. It looks lovely and tastes delicious.
I then whisk together all the filling ingredients, pour them over the potatoes, and pop the whole thing in the oven to cook. It’s a healthy, filling, and delicious home cooked meal, with minimal time spent in the kitchen.
As a bonus, I usually have enough quiche left over for a simple lunch, which means more time to do something fun with the potami… or sneak away for a few minutes alone while they build with blocks!
This recipe can be made in a cast iron skillet from start to finish, which means there’s only one pan to clean. If you don’t have one, I’ve also included instructions for making it in two pie pans.

Easy Quiche Recipe With Bacon, Tomato and Green Onion
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
Place the pan on the stove over medium heat.
- Chop the bacon and add it to the pan.
- While the bacon is frying, cut the potatoes into very thin slices.
- Once the bacon is crispy, remove it from the pan and set aside.
- Pour out any excess bacon grease that is present. A thin layer of grease should be left to prevent the potato crust from sticking, but you don’t need much.
- Place potato slices in the skillet to form a crust, like this:
- In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs together.
- Stir in the shredded cheese, green onion, tomato, salt, and pepper.
- Crumble the bacon and add it to the egg mixture, then carefully pour the mixture into the skillet over the potatoes.
- Place skilled in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until set in the center.
