Ingredients:

 

Directions:

 

Step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange bacon slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and place in hot oven. Bake until until crisp, 15-20 minutes, checking doneness at 15 minutes to prevent browning. Remove bacon from oven and transfer to paper towel. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.

 

Step 2
When the bacon is cool, coarsely chop.

 

Step 3
Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Once melted, add chopped shallots, garlic, and Swiss chard stalks to pan. Sauté until translucent (1-2 minutes). Add sliced Swiss chard leaves to skillet and sauté until leaves are wilted. Remove from heat.

 

Step 4
In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs, half & half, chopped bacon and Canadian bacon, thyme, pinch of salt and pepper.

 

Step 5
Fold in the sautéed vegetables and halved cherry tomatoes into egg mixture.

 

Step 6
Pour half of the egg mixture into the unbaked pie crust and add half of the Gruyere cheese.

 

Step 7
Pour in remaining egg mixture and top with remaining cheese.

 

Step 8
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the center of the quiche is firm. Remove from oven and let rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.
