A good quiche is like a needed warm embrace.
C.J. and I love quiche and it is so easy to make! You can pretty much put whatever you want into a quiche, so it can be very inexpensive to make as well.
I have played around with several different quiche recipes and this is one that I like. While it isn’t super fluffy it is not very heavy….it a nice compromise. It uses milk instead of heavy cream, so it is not as oily or heavy as some quiches. This is a crustless quiche, which is what C.J. and I prefer.
- ½ tsp minced garlic
- as needed non-stick spray
- 1/2 cup frozen spinach
- 1 cup cooked bacon (crumbled)
- 5 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- to taste salt & pepper
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. If your frozen spinach is not already thawed, thaw it in the microwave. Put into a colander and let it drain while you begin to prepare the rest.
- Spray a pie dish with non-stick spray. Squeeze the rest of the water out of the spinach and spread it out on the bottom of the pie dish. Sprinkle the bacon on the bottom of the dish as well.
- In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs until fairly smooth. Add the milk, cheddar, and another small sprinkle of pepper. Whisk to combine. Pour this mixture into the pie dish over the spinach and bacon.
- Sprinkle some cheese over top. Place the pie dish on a baking sheet for easy transfer into the oven. Place the quiche into the preheated oven and bake until it is golden brown on top and the center is solid. Every oven is different but this should take between 45 minutes and an hour. Slice and serve
It was delicious!
