Delicious Spinach or Broccoli and Bacon Quiche

Updated on February 25, 2013
5 stars from 1 rating of Spinach and Bacon Quiche

When ever I make quiche, I make two. For three reasons: A) because people love it, B) because certain people in my family prefer different fillings, and C) because the pie crusts come in packs of two, he he. I used to use a whole packet of bacon in each pie, but then my conscience got the better of me, ha ha. I usually make one with broccoli and bacon and one with spinach and bacon. Everybody seems to like these two over my sausage and onion one. You can play around with the recipe by adding a different meat, vegetable, etc. The recipe is otherwise the same. This recipe is for one pie. People love quiche so be sure to make plenty and enjoy! :)

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 35 min
Ready in: 55 min
Yields: 1 pie serves 6

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 3/4 cups broccoli florets or chopped spinach
  • 6 oz (half a pack) bacon, frozen
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dill
  • 4oz cheese, parmesan, romano, mozzarella, cheddar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 pie crust, deep dish
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Take the frozen pack of bacon and run it under tap water for one minute in order to loosen the meat from the plastic. Take the bacon out of the plastic and cut the bacon width-wise in quarter inch strips. Fry the bacon and keep pushing apart the pieces of bacon with your cooking spoon as they begin to separate on their own. Fry the bacon until it is *almost* burned. You should end up with bacon bits.
  3. In a big bowl mix broccoli florets or chopped spinach, heavy cream, shredded mix of cheeses, salt, pepper, nutmeg, dill, and bacon.
  4. You can taste the mix at this point to decide if you want to add more dill, nutmeg, salt or pepper. Then add the eggs and mix.
  5. Pour the mixture into the pie crust
  6. Bake @350 for 35 min
  7. Stick a knife or fork in the quiche- if it comes out clean, it is done. If not, bake for another 5 minutes.
