Bacon Quiche with Spinach and Mushroom is  my recipe of  the day. The flavors  combine with two of my favorite quiche style:  bacon, and spinach. I love mushrooms too. And you will find those in many of my quiche recipes as well.

Bacon Quiche with Spinach and Mushroom

Quiche really is quite simple to bake. Most of the mistakes made with quiche occur with not baking it long enough. The custard should be nicely domed when set. Then it sinks flat as it cools.

Another is not getting the crust done enough. I suggest putting the pie on a lower oven shelf. I keep my pizza stone on the bottom which helps keep the heat even there as well as hold the temps if the oven door goes open or closed.

  • Lightly beat the eggs, then stir in the half and half, salt and nutmeg.
  • When pie crust has cooled, place the torn spinach leaves in the bottom of the crust. If you haven't used baby spinach leave, make sure to trim of the stems before you put the spinach in the crust.

  1. I’m curious why you dot the filling with butter. There’s already a lot of fat and richness, what does the butter add?

    • It enriches the custard and aids with browning the top. It is by no means essential to the pie turning out as a quiche but it is how they are traditionally made in French Cuisine. Of course, if you are concerned with fat content it is okay for you to make your own judgement call and eliminate it. Cheers! ~Sue

  2. This was a delicious quiche. One amazing bite and I knew this was the best quiche I had ever eaten. The flavors blended so well I couldn’t tell what each ingredient was. I will definitely be making this again. Made for Culinary Quest for the Toasted Tourists.
