I tweeted a picture of a quiche that I made last night and had several requests for the recipe, so I figured I would just blog it for easy access.
I feel like quiche is either something you love or something you hate. I went my entire life thinking that I hated it because I am not a fan of eggs. A couple years ago, I tried it for the first time and my life was changed! It is so not eggy! It's absolutely delicious and one of my very favorite breakfast/brunch foods. Nom Nom Nom!
This is Paula Deen's recipe and it was a huge hit in my home. If you are a quiche lover, you must make this one.
Spinach and Bacon Quiche. Here is what you'll need:
6 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
Salt and pepper
2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach, packed
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crust, fitted to a 9-inch glass pie plate
While you're frying up your bacon, throw the eggs and heavy cream in a food processor (or blender) until smooth. Add your salt and pepper.
Then layer in your (pre-made) pie crust: Spinach, Bacon & Cheese. The colors are beautiful!
(I threw in a handful of cheddar cheese, too, for good measure.)
Then pour your egg mixture on top.
Bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes.
It turned out beautifully!
Most people think that quiche is a "girly" food ... this is where you are wrong. Husby absolutely LOVED it. I mean think about it, it's everything guys love whipped up into a pie! Bacon. Eggs. Cheese. How could a man not love it?
Of course, it didn't hurt that I served it alongside a heaping plate of biscuits and sausage gravy. There you go. Man food.
What I really loved about this dish is that it keeps and reheats perfectly. Husby grabbed a slice and threw it in the microwave on his way out for work. He had a simple, nutritious breakfast on-the-go just like *that*! I told him I need to start making a different kind of quiche every Sunday so he will have it for his work week. Not a bad idea! :)
