The Best Quiche Recipe for a Hearty Breakfast or Special Brunch

Quiche Recipe with Bacon, Spinach and Goat Cheese

This quiche recipe is filled with spinach, goat cheese and a little Canadian bacon to make it extra special.  You can use your own crust recipe or a purchased crust, it and can be frozen or prepped ahead of time, making this an easy meal special enough for guests!!

From scratch or premade pie crust is the base of this savoury quiche recipe.

This time I made a mini quiche recipe, but you can use it for a large quiche if you prefer.  This savory quiche is rich and smooth, but light because of the lean Canadian bacon and goat.  You can easily substitute the bacon for ham, but if you can find the oh so lean Canadian bacon I hope you give it a try.

This recipe is a good way to introduce spinach into your families diet.  My eldest son ate most vegetables including spinach until he heard his uncle say spinach was disgusting, that’s all it took and he refused to eat it.

I was able to sneak spinach into quiches, pizza (my favorite topping) and lasagna without him noticing the spinach.  I will admit sometimes I called it  beet greens, or kale,  whatever works is my motto.  As an adult he laughs that I had him eating spinach all along.a

In large frying pan add tsp of olive oil, and cook the bacon.  Add the chopped spinach and diced onion.  Cook until spinach is wilted, about five minutes.   Transfer the mixture to a colander and let drain to remove the excess water from the wilted spinach.

Once the spinach filling is well drained, fill your pastry lined quiche pans with the spinach filling.

Crumble goat cheese over the spinach mixture.  Add salt and pepper to taste my family likes no salt, and lots of pepper.

Beat eggs and cream, pour over spinach filling, filling the quiche to the crusts edge.

To make the mini quiche stay flat in the oven, place them on a cookie sheet, and then place the cookie sheet in the oven.  A large quiche does not need the cookie sheet.

Bake the bacon and spinach quiche about 30 minutes, until top is golden brown and center is set. For a full sized quiche bake for 45 minutes.

Remove from oven, set aside for 5  minutes and then serve.

  3. We love a good quiche for breakfast at my house and this one sounds quite delicious. We all eat spinach and goat cheese. I just made a recipe with spinach a few days ago. My parents did not like spinach so my brothers and I were not introduced to it growing up consequently I didn’t know how good it was until recent years. Now I use spinach in recipes every chance I get.
    Pinned and planning to make this.
