This Bacon Spinach Quiche is to die for!
It’s lightened up but so full of flavor. A must serve for any brunch or breakfast!
You could even make it for your breakfast meal prep.
To keep this recipe easy I used a store bought pie crust. I’m not much of a baker as you can probably tell by what my quiche crust looks like. 🙂
It may not be the prettiest looking quiche but it is absolutely delicious!
Here’s what you need to make Bacon Spinach Quiche:
- Store bought pie crust
- Center cut bacon
- Salt & pepper
- Skim milk
- Reduced fat Mexican cheese, shredded
- Baby spinach
I used center cut bacon because it’s a little lower in points. I only used 3 pieces but I cooked the onion and spinach with it so the quiche was full of bacon flavor.
You could even make this quiche lower in points by leaving out the pie crust. I would reduce the baking time if you’re not using the pie crust, bake until the center is cooked through.
One thing I love about quiche is it’s so easy to mix it up and change the ingredients. I used my Caprese Quiche recipe as a starting point for this Bacon Spinach Quiche.
The pie crust, eggs, skim milk, cheese, salt and pepper are all the same amounts.
For the Caprese Quiche I used part skim mozzarella cheese and for the Bacon Spinach Quiche I used reduced fat Mexican cheese.
Either type of cheese will work for this quiche.
The most time consuming part of this recipe is the baking – which is 45 minutes. But it’s so worth it!
