Spinach and Bacon Quiche

Standard

This recipe was done on the fly! Remember the deep dish apple pie I made? Well usually when you buy frozen crust it comes in a package of two! Two for the price of one allowed me to make an apple pie AND a quiche! Score! I hope you guys enjoy this recipe. I can home and remembered I had a pie crust left over, and instantly thought of making a breakfast quiche for myself. This recipe is so easy and quick to make. Here’s how you do it:

All you need:

  • 1 pie crust unthawed
  • 6-8 strips of bacon
  • 1-2 cups of cheddar cheese ( or a cheese blend)
  • 1/2 chopped white onion
  • 1 bundle of spinach
  • 6 eggs whipped
  • green onion/chives (optional)

Mmmmm bacon…

Directions:

Once your bundle of spinach is chopped and rinsed.  I used a drizzle of the bacon grease to the pan and sauteed the spinach and onion together until it was soft. I use bacon grease because it gives the spinach a nice flavor without me having to add any seasonings. I also added a pinch of crush red pepper flakes.

Next, add your cheese.IMG_2869

Now pour over your 6 eggs that you have whipped.IMG_2870

The fun part….Crush the bacon over the mixture and use a fork to carefully blend the chunks of bacon.  IMG_2871

Bake in the oven for 35 minutes or until the egg is firm and pie crust is brown.
