Spinach and Bacon Quiche
This cheesy, creamy, hearty quiche melts in your mouth. It will elevate your brunch spread from good to great! The spinach and bacon perfectly balance each other mixed with melted cheeses to make a hearty dish.
While quiche is most popular for brunch, our family enjoys this Spinach and Bacon Quiche as a main dish for dinner too. The simple ingredients mix together quickly making this recipe very easy to prepare.
Colby, Swiss and mozzarella cheese are combined with eggs, milk, mayonnaise, onion and frozen spinach to make a crustless quiche pie that is delightful. The variety of cheeses is my favorite part of every bite.
I love how there’s a lot of vegetables in this breakfast dish, but the meaty bacon and cheesy flavors all compliment each other so well. Our Egg, Sausage & Brioche Breakfast Casserole and our Everything Bagel Breakfast Casserole also blend wonderful and unique flavors in every bite.
Tips & Tricks
- Spinach should be defrosted and well-drained. Toss into a strainer and squeeze handfuls so that all of the juice is squeezed out.
- If fresh spinach is used ensure that it is well-drained to prevent a soupy quiche.
- Flour is used to help thicken up the milk and help ingredients stick together.
- Freshly shredded cheeses maximize fresh flavors, but pre-shredded cheese may also be used.
- Quiche is done or set when the center stops jiggling when bumped and when a serrated knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Can Fresh Spinach Be Used Instead of Frozen Spinach
Fresh spinach that has never been frozen or wilted creates more volume in the same amount of weight as frozen spinach. Therefore fresh spinach is more challenging to get mixed in to the other ingredients.
When an equal amount of fresh spinach is used as frozen spinach, pieces will pop up on top and may burn while baking. So the solution is to decrease the amount of fresh spinach slightly, add wilted fresh spinach to the recipe, or chop spinach well before mixing in.
When I have extra fresh spinach I love using it in this Green Monster Smoothie.
