    Good Spinach Bacon Quiche Recipe

    This has always been a hit whenever I take it to functions.

    6 large eggs, beaten
    1 1/2 cups heavy cream
    salt and pepper
    2 cups FINELY chopped fresh baby spinach, packed
    1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
    1 1/2 cups shredded swiss cheese
    1 - 9" refrigerated pie crust, placed in glass pie plate

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    Combine the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper. Layer the spinach, bacon, and cheese in the bottom of the pie crust, then pour the egg mixture on top. Bake for 35 - 45 minutes until the egg mixture is set. Cut into 8 wedges.



    A friend made it and said it didn't turn out as well as mine. I think the trick is to make sure you are finely chopping the spinach and crumbling the bacon into relatively small pieces (smaller than bite size). Yes, it takes time but I think it's worth it. I try to do this in a two step/two day process. You can easily get the bacon cooked and crumbled a day ahead of time. Then the day you need this you can devote your time to cutting the spinach. I like to use kitchen scissors but you might do just as well with a knife and chopping it-just no big pieces! My kitchen scissors are really just regular office supply scissors but I've labeled them "food" and only use them in the kitchen. They work better than the scissors I've had from kitchen supplies in the stores.

    Enjoy.

    I love a good quiche. A restaurant near here makes wonderful ones. I'm going to try yours, maybe add some broccoli to it too.

    also, an easy way to make a large quantity of bacon: lay it out on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake in the oven. Stays flat and crisps nicely. you could do the bacon like this while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

    Super recipe! Made it today and wow is it wonderful. Took some over to neighbor and she called back to say thanks and to ask for the recipe. I didn't have a glass pie dish so I used as is - frozen in the tin pan. It overflowed in the oven - now I get to clean the oven- but I think it was because the only eggs I had were Jumbo (from a local farm and they are huge). I used applewood smoked bacon from Wally World -cut down to 12 oz though and it is the BEST quiche I have ever had. Thank you for posting.

    This sounds soooo good. Going to try it when I get some more baby spinach which I love to put in salads. Hope my hubby likes it to - he is a meat and potatoes man!! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    My husband is meat and potatoes, too! If you take it to a function with 'the ladies' you'll be lucky to bring home a slice to have as leftovers. LOL

    The cleanup was easy as it came out in a clump and didn't stick to the bottom of the oven. Then I decided to clean the oven so in all, the quiche was great and now the oven is clean.
