This quiche is my favorite. My children love it too, and it's a great way to get them to each spinach without complaining.
- Cook the spinach and drain well.
- Mix remaining ingredients and add to spinach.
- Put in unbaked pie shell.
- Sprinkle 1/4 Cup cheese on top.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
Delicious - and EASY!
Used evaporated milk for a richer taste.
Didn't have cheddar cheese, used 1/2 mozzarella and 1/2 colby jack with about 1/4 C parmesan
My new favorite quiche! I really liked the combo of bacon, cheese, and spinach. I served it with a spinach salad and it made a great late night supper. I think it would be wonderful for a brunch, lunch, or breakfast as well. Instead of using all cheddar cheese, I did use mostly sharp cheddar and filled in with a little Swiss that I had left over. It did seem just a tad too salty though. That could be due to the type of cheese I used or maybe my bacon was too salty. Also, the crust did seem to brown a little too much but that may be due to my oven (which heats a little higher than it should). Next time I think I will use a mild cheddar, I'll set the oven at 375 and check it at 30 and 35 minutes.
I looked at several recipes but none appealed to me. THIS was the recipe I was looking for! I did not pre-cook the spinach - it cooks in the oven. I didn't have a few of the items so I made a some substitutes. Soy milk for the cow milk. Our soy milk can be a little sweet in recipes so I added a couple of tablespoons of nutritional yeast - weird stuff but useful. I didn't have any onion (odd, right?) so I used 3 - 4 green onions. My frozen pie shells were quite deep so I added 2 - 3 more eggs. The crust started to brown 15 minutes before the quiche was done so hubby turned down the oven to 340°. They came out perfect. We are taking them camping over the 4th thus we "had to" taste test first tonight - very yummy. Imagine what they would have been like if I had all the listed ingredients! I was thinking of adding a few pieces of Morning Star vegetarian bacon but I couldn't find it in my mess of a freezer. Thank you DJB!
