Spinach & Bacon Quiche Recipe

Looking for a delicious quiche recipe? Make sure to check out our delicious & super easy Spinach & Bacon Quiche Recipe here!

Do you ever have days when you don’t feel like cooking? That was me this past weekend. Sure, I had plenty of things I should be cooking but most of it was very time consuming and I knew I was starting to get sick. To make matters worse, I had an oversupply of eggs bought for the holidays, as well as bacon that ended up not being used. Since I don’t like wasting food, I was determined to find something I could make with all these ingredients. Seeing what I had in the kitchen, I went with the best thing I could think of – an impromptu quiche.

While I had various quiche recipes in the house, I didn’t have all the fancy ingredients in the house for most of them. Since I knew the basics of a quiche, I decided to just make a fun recipe from the top of my head, hoping to use what we had in the fridge. After quickly mixing everything together, I put it in the oven and hoped, using the normal temperature and cook time I had used for other quiches in the past. In all honesty, my husband was nervous but hoped for the best, knowing that worst case, I at least tried.

Once it was time for dinner though, we both were eager to try it. The end result, I must say, was truly out of this world. The right mix of flavor, cheesiness, and an amazing flavor that left us satisfied. Best of all, it was very filling, making it a perfect breakfast or dinner! With how great the recipe I turned out, I quickly grabbed my camera. I knew I had to share it with you guys. Not only is it one of the easiest quiche recipes I have ever made, but truly looked beautiful, making it a recipe to impress guests.

Love quiche? I’d love for you to tell me what you think of our Spinach and Bacon Quiche below, or to hear your suggestions for next time!

Spinach & Bacon Quiche Recipe
An easy to make quiche recipe for the nights when you don't feel like cooking anything too fancy.
Author:
Cuisine: Quiche
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 1 Bake Yourself Pie Crust
  • 6 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • 1½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon peppers
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 Package of frozen Spinach (thawed)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Prepare pie crust as directed. I use the Pillsbury pie crust (safe for those with corn allergies in my family).
  3. In a bowl, mix the eggs, cream, salt, pepper, and thyme. Make sure it is mixed thoroughly.
  4. Add the cheese and bacon to the egg mixture, mix thoroughly.
  5. With paper towels, dry the spinach of any liquid from the cooking process (I use the steam bag spinach that can be cooked in the microwave). Once dry, mix into the egg mixture.
  6. Pour egg and spinach mixture into the cooked pie shell. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes. When finished, poke it with a knife - it should come out clean.
  7. Allow to set for 30 minutes to an hour before serving.

    I have always wanted to try to make a quiche. This sounds so good and easy enough that I can make it.

    This sounds really good. I can’t eat bacon so I would probably substitute chicken. A chicken, spinach and onion quiche would be really great,

    The recipe sounds pretty good. I’m not really fond of quiche. I would try this, but wouldn’t make it.

    I did not care for eggs growing up but love spinach. This sounds absolutely wonderful and mouth watering.

    Quiche is delicious hot or cold. To save some calories, you can also bake it without a crust in a well greased pan.

    I love quiche. It really doesn’t need fancy ingredients. I have put just some ham in it and it is just as good as when it took days to prepare. I love the spinach. It adds a nice nutritional value, and also looks beautiful.

    This looks so good but I’d have to cut the recipe down because nobody in my house would eat it but me.

    I have made spinach quiches and this is the correct recipe, even if you did from memory. You can tweek it using some half and half for the cream or dill instead of thyme, etc.

    Call me weird but spinach is my absolute favorite food in the world. I could eat it it everyday. I have never had quiche before and the bacon makes me wonder but I look forward to trying this.

    Id totally make this. Am so tired of the same brunch items for holidays or even weekends. I love that Quiche is a 1 stop meal that covers all the food groups. Great protein!

    I like the ingredients but not the consistency of a quiche. I’d try this, but scramble the eggs and add a slice of Borden cheese.

    I definitely have to try this out

    Pinned your recipe to try at a later time. No cream, bacon, or pie crust in this house although I have everything else! Figures! I have an extra pack of spinach because I made spinach lasagna the other night. Love quiches!

    I’ve only had quiche a couple of times in my life. One time I liked it and the other I did not. The one I liked had spinach and mushrooms in it.
    So I know I would like this mushroom and bacon quiche recipe!! Two ingredients I love!

    This recipe reminds me of the quiches that my grandmother and auntie used to make. Such fond memories of get-togethers. I have never tried it before with bacon, so this will make for a fun variation.

    We make quiche often Spring through Fall because we buy an “egg share” from a local farm (we pick eggs up every Saturday April through October). Your bacon/spinach recipe looks easy and yummy! Thank you for sharing it here.
