Description

Bacon, spinach, tomatoes & white cheddar baked into a flakey crust for a delicious BLT Quiche you’ll want to eat it every meal of the day!


Ingredients

Crust:

  • 11/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter, sliced
  • 5 tablespoons ice cold water

Filling:

  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 pound bacon, cooked & crumbled
  • 1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 11/2 cups shredded sharp white cheddar
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knives moving in opposite directions, until a crumbly mixture forms. Drizzle in the ice cold water and stir until dough just comes together. Using your hands, form the dough into a smooth flat disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prep the filling. Cook and crumble the bacon. Quarter the cherry tomatoes. Shred the cheese. Set those ingredients aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, salt and pepper until well combined and smooth.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Generously butter a 9-inch pie pan.
  5. Once the dough has been refrigerated for at least 30 minutes, remove and roll out to a large circle that’s larger than the 9-inch pie pan and about 1/4-inch thick or thinner. Transfer the dough to the pie pan then trim and flute the edges.
  6. Layer the spinach, all but 1/4 cup of the crumbled bacon, tomatoes and cheese in the crust. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the ingredients in the crust. Sprinkle with the reserved 1/4 cup crumbled bacon. Set the quiche on a rimmed baking sheet and place in the preheated oven. Bake for about 45 minutes or until quiche is set and crust is golden brown. Let set for at least 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
