Ever have a day when you wake up with a craving for something savory? In a quick perusal of my fridge I realized I had all the makings of a quiche. Here’s what I created!
Savory Spinach Quiche
- 1 pie crust
- 5 eggs
- 1 c half and half
- 5 slices cooked bacon, chopped
- 12 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
- 2 c fresh baby spinach
- 1 T chopped Vidalia onion
- 1 1/2 c shredded sharp cheddar
- 1/2 t thyme
- 1 t seasoned salt
- 1 t cracked black pepper
- Red pepper flakes to taste (optional)
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Using a 9 inch pie plate unroll the pie crust and press into place. Layer the spinach, covering the bottom of the crust, scatter the onion, bacon and tomatoes over the top, followed by the cheese. In a large bowl add the eggs, half and half, thyme, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, mix together thoroughly (I used my immersion blender). Pour the egg mixture over the filling. Bake on the lowest rack of your oven for 30-35 minutes until set. Rest for 10 minutes and serve.
