Some meals look too fancy to be seen as possible camping meal or outdoors meal. This is where the versatility of the dutch oven can be seen. This Dutch Oven Bacon Quiche Recipe can show you as how a fancy meal like this quiche can be made on a campfire in the great outdoors. My dutch oven bacon quiche was certainly a great success with all of the present people and a very hearty meal for the day outdoors.
Dutch Oven Bacon Quiche Recipe
- ½ package refrigerated pie crust
- 1 lb package bacon cooked and crumbled
- 3 cups shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese blend
- 6 large eggs
- ¾ cup sour cream
- 1 green bell pepper chopped
- ½ teaspoon salt

Spray dutch oven well to coat. You can also use tin foil and spray with cooking spray. Fit pie crust into bottom of a 10-inch Dutch oven. Bake crust 5 minutes.
Sprinkle bacon (reserve a little for garnish), bell pepper, and cheese evenly over crust.
In a small bowl, whisk eggs and sour cream together. Whisk in salt and pepper.
Pour over cheese and bacon mixture. Bake 40 minutes, or until center is set.
Cut into wedges to serve. Garnish with chopped cooked bacon, if desired.
