  • 1 sheet prepared puff pastry, thawed
  • 6 slices bacon, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup Gruyere cheese, grated
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Unroll the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Gently roll the pastry into a 12-inch circle and place in a 9-inch pie plate. Trim any excess edges and crimp the edges of the pastry.
  3. In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels.
  4. Add the onion to the skillet and cook until soft, 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle the bacon, onion, and cheese over the pastry.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and vegetables.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the quiche is set and golden brown.
  8. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
