INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Chop the bacon into thin strips and dice the onion finely.
  2. Spray a frying pan with Low Calorie Cooking Spray and, on a moderate heat, cook the bacon strips and diced onion until the bacon has coloured and the onion is soft. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Place the eggs into a large bowl and whisk. Add the quark and continue to whisk until the quark is fully combined - there should be no lumps at all. Season well with salt and pepper.
  4. Stir in half of the cheese and the bacon/onion mix. Spray a 24cm Pyrex flan dish with Low Calorie Cooking Spray and pour in the egg mixture. Make sure that there is an even distribution of bacon and onion.
  5. Top with the remaining cheese and cook for 20 minutes until golden. If using a dish with a smaller diameter (therefore resulting in a deeper quiche) then it may need an extra 5-6 minutes in the oven.
  6. Serve hot or cold with your choice of accompaniment.

  1. Wow this was just as amazing as the first time I made it. So tasty even my husband wants to take some on our Picnic tomorrow ,( if there is any left) , so easy and quick to do..

  2. Just made this with my daughter…actually think it may have been the best quiche I have EVER eaten ,,,added a little Schwartz all season spicy chillies & onion – it is sooooo gorgeous – thank you for such a fab recipe … I love using quark and didn’t have any cottage cheese which my usual recipe uses. Definitely need to include this in a recipe book if you do one 🙂

  3. This was absolutely delicious! If I prep all the ingredients (cooked onion and bacon, whisked egg and grated cheese) do you tho k it would be ok in the fridge for a day or two so I could just pour into a dish, add the extra cheese and bake? I have a baby so I try to prep as much of the next day’s meals as I can after she’s gone to bed.

  4. Hello, I live in Hong Kong and cannot get a hold of quark or even fromage frais. What other dairy products could i use as substitute? Thanks

  5. Hi 🙂
    Love love love this recipe, quick, easy and my “go to” for snacking..
    Could I just check the HEA cheese..recipe says 160g reduced fat cheddar but in SW book 40g reduced fat cheddar equals 1 HEA? Xx

    1. Ah I see, I did wonder and was sure that is was right but didn’t calculate it in to individual portions .
      Thanks for replying and clarifying 👍😉🙂

  6. Just made this quiche for lunch this week at work. Couldn’t wait and so tried a slice warm for lunch. It is amazing!
