I used to think quiche was what you ate for a fancy breakfast meal, not something you would eat at your campsite. That logic all changed when I found a great quiche recipe, on lovetheoutdoors.com that had bacon in it. I am all about a great bacon breakfast at the campsite. I love using my dutch oven and adapted the recipe slightly and tried it out on our last camping trip. The dutch oven bacon quiche was certainly a success with the whole group and a very hearty meal for a our day outdoors.

For this recipe I would definitely recommend using a 10 inch dutch oven, just because the crust is going to fit nicely in it. To keep the temperature around 350 degrees I used about 8 coals on the bottom and 13 coals on the lid.
To make this a super easy breakfast camping meal I did some of the chopping and prep work in the comforts of my home. Before you leave just cook up the bacon, crumble and put in a small container. Cut up your bell pepper and keep in a ziploc bag. You can even beat together the eggs, sour cream and seasonings and keep it in a ziploc bag, storing it in your cooler.
We found that this bacon quiche was super delicious and easy to make for a very filling breakfast!
