A friend of mine made this, and I just had to have the recipe. And it is the best tasting quiche I have had in years. Never any complaints when I make it. Great for a fall/winter dinner with a cup of soup.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Chop when cool.

  • Fit the pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish, and set aside.

  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, salt, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce. Spread the spinach into the bottom of the pie crust; top with bacon, Cheddar cheese, and green onion. Pour the egg mixture over the filling, and sprinkle the quiche with Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is lightly puffed and browned, and a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Notes

Sometimes I don't use all the spinach, green onions, bacon, and sharp cheese; adjust to your own tastes. Also one more tip: put a sheet pan under quiche pan, just in case of spillage as it bakes.

This was awesome. Frying the bacon took the longest amt of time. I think maybe next time I will try to just mix it all together instead of layers. Thanks for the great breakfast! Read More

This quiche is amazing! I followed one reviewers advice to use fresh spinach and I replaced 3/4 cup of the heavy cream with 1/2 & 1/2. Quick tip: when making large quantities of crumbled bacon for recipes, dice bacon to the desired size and then fry it. No turning each slice...just give it a stir every few minutes for even browning.

This was a great tasting recipe. I did not follow it exactly. I used ½ pound of bacon, 1/3 the amount of heavy cream and the rest was half and half and wilted fresh spinach. Additionally, the pie crust should be a 10 inch deep dish pie crust and not a 9 inch. Otherwise you will have extra filling. I found out the hard way, I made double the recipe and had enough left for a third quiche. Read More

Great classic quiche recipe & very versatile. Although it did take me almost 3x longer than what is called for to bake it thoroughly (and my oven runs hot) so next time I will get it in the oven much earlier. Also I would probably try to lighten it up a bit by substituting some of the cream for milk and taking out some egg yolks. Read More

Read the recipe wrong and it was the best mistake I've ever made. I bought french fried onions instead of green onions. I crushed them and used them in place of the green onions in the recipe instructions. I made two pies and *poof* my family of four had them devoured in no time. (less than 24 hours) My husband (typical "real men don't eat quiche' kinda guy) couldn't get enough and has asked for this again numerous times. Read More

I made this tonight and it turned out great. I ended up using half & half instead of cream 2 premade 9" pie crust and fresh spinach. I sliced up a package of bacon and fried it in a pan. Drained it and set it aside. Used the same pan barely wiping the pan of bacon grease and cooked the spinage. I didn't layer as indicated just mixed everything in a big bowl. It was a pretty thick mixture and thought about added 2 more eggs since the filling was going into two pie pans (using the same amount of ingredients) but stuck with 6 eggs. I added a few more dashes of Tobassco but you couldn't tell I added any. After it was done I let it stand for about 15 minutes before serving it for dinner. Added a Ceasar salad and had a great meal. The next time I make this I'm going to use 1/2 a package of bacon and 2 more eggs. Even though our family loves bacon it was a bit too much for this dish. Read More

I have cooked this twice now for breakfast occasions with RAVE reviews. Comments like "this is the best quiche I have ever had!" Along with multiple requests to bring it the next time. I actually prebake my crust (weight it down while cooking) the night before add all ingredients except the egg mixture put everything in the fridge overnight covered tightly with Saran Wrap then in the morning take it out let sit to come to room temp for 30 minutes add egg mixture (also mixed the night before) and bake as directed (with foil over crust edges until the last 5 minutes). A real hit! Read More

AMAZING! i love it! i was nervous at first but it came out amazing! The only thing I changed was adding broccoli in addition to the spinach and I did not use the hot sauce because I do not like spicy food. Read More
