This yummy Bacon Spinach and Tomato Quiche recipe is easy enough to serve for dinner on a busy night, but fancy enough to serve for a brunch party, too!
If you have backyard chickens, then it’s likely you have a TON of eggs right now. Spring has arrived and with the warmer temperatures and good “grubs” coming up out of the frost, the chickens are laying like crazy. So, now is the time to try this Bacon Spinach and Tomato Quiche!
Let’s head to the kitchen…
Okay, your first choice is pie crust…homemade or store bought?
It’s entirely up to you!
I’ve used both for all kinds of pies, but let’s be honest, while homemade pie crust tastes better and it’s certainly healthier for you, sometimes it’s just so much easier to roll out a package from the store.
So, you do you! Whatever works!
Go ahead and preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Roll out your pie crust and place it in your favorite pie pan.
Crack open around 6 eggs and put them into a large bowl.
Add heavy cream to the eggs and whisk as if you’re making scrambled eggs.
Throw in some chopped bacon, some fresh spinach and a handful of diced tomatoes.
Sprinkle in some shredded cheddar cheese and stir it all together.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust and bake for around 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the eggs have cooked through.
