This spinach bacon quiche is the best-tasting quiche I have had in years. A friend of mine made this, and I just had to have the recipe. Great for brunch or for a light dinner with a cup of soup.

Yield:
1 9-inch quiche

Ingredients

  • ¾ pound sliced bacon

  • 1 (9 inch) single refrigerated pie crust

  • 6 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream

  • 5 dashes hot pepper sauce, or to taste

  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach - thawed, drained and squeezed dry

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • ½ cup chopped green onion

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

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

  3. Fit pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish and set aside.

  4. Whisk eggs, cream, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper together in a bowl.

  5. Spread spinach over the bottom of pie crust. Top with bacon, Cheddar cheese, and green onion; pour in egg mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  6. Bake quiche 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.

Tips

You can adjust the amount of spinach, green onions, bacon, and cheese to your own taste.

Place a sheet pan under the quiche pan, just in case of spillage as it bakes.
