Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Chop when cool.
  3. Fit the pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish, and set aside.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, salt, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce. Spread the spinach into the bottom of the pie crust; top with bacon, Cheddar cheese, and green onion. Pour the egg mixture over the filling, and sprinkle the quiche with Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is lightly puffed and browned, and a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes.

  • Cook's Notes
  • I don't use all the spinach, green onions, bacon, and sharp cheese. Also one more tip: put a sheet pan under quiche pan, just in case of spillage as it bakes.

This was awesome. Frying the bacon took the longest amt of time. I think maybe next time I will try to just mix it all together instead of layers. Thanks for the great breakfast!

First of all there was way too much egg to fit inside the pie crust. It overflowed but luckily I put a cookie sheet under it . Also the crust was not crispy at all, it tasted under cooked and I had it in the oven for over an hour.

This was a great tasting recipe. I did not follow it exactly. I used ½ pound of bacon, 1/3 the amount of heavy cream and the rest was half and half and wilted fresh spinach. Additionally, the pie crust should be a 10 inch deep dish pie crust and not a 9 inch. Otherwise you will have extra filling. I found out the hard way, I made double the recipe and had enough left for a third quiche.

Great classic quiche recipe & very versatile. Although it did take me almost 3x longer than what is called for to bake it thoroughly (and my oven runs hot) so next time I will get it in the oven much earlier. Also, I would probably try to lighten it up a bit by substituting some of the cream for milk and taking out some egg yolks.

This quiche is amazing! I followed one reviewers advice to use fresh spinach and I replaced 3/4 cup of the heavy cream with 1/2 & 1/2. Quick tip: when making large quantities of crumbled bacon for recipes, dice bacon to the desired size and then fry it. No turning each slice...just give it a stir every few minutes for even browning.

I am the the one who submitted this recipe,that being said they did change a few things.I only wanted footnote to read that I use less spinach.The rest I leave the same.Or can be adjusted to ones own taste.I do believe I use less of the onions.It was so long ago that I put this recipe in hard to remember.And it is tasty.

AMAZING! i love it! i was nervous at first, but it came out amazing! The only thing I changed was adding broccoli in addition to the spinach and I did not use the hot sauce because I do not like spicy food.
