What's For Dinner Wednesday

Spinach and Bacon Quiche that’s what’s for dinner!!

I originally was going to make a Spinach and Bacon Frittata out of Every Day Food, but none of my skillets were oven safe…back to the drawing board. I hit up Google for a Spinach and Bacon Quiche and found a very easy recipe by Paula Deen.

Let’s gather our ingredients
6 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
Salt and pepper
2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach, packed ( I used frozen)
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crust, fitted to a 9-inch glass pie plate

First, cover a baking sheet with a piece of foil. Lay your pound of bacon on the sheet in a single layer. You want to cook the bacon for 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven. With my oven that got the bacon done, but not too crispy.
Second, while the bacon is cooking combine the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender.
Blend for about a minutes to make sure everything is good and mixed up.
Third, place your pie crust in the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate. Like I said earlier, this was a little bit on an improve dinner. I used a can of crescent rolls and lined my pie plate…everything is better with crescent rolls, right???
Fourth, take the Bacon out of the oven. Let it drain on a paper towel covered plate.
Fifth, add the spinach to the bottom of the pie crust.
Sixth, Chop the bacon into pieces.
Then add the bacon on top of the spinach.
Seventh, add the cheese on the top of everything else.
Eighth, pour the egg mixture on top.
Bake for 35 to 45 minutes at 375 degrees until the egg mixture is set.
Cut into wedges and serve….Yum Yum!!
Happy Baking!!
