This Spinach and Bacon Quiche is baked in a tender and flakey pie crust and is one of my favorites brunch on the weekends.
If you love quiche as much as I do, don’t miss my Quiche Lorraine and Broccoli Cheese Quiche recipes.

My favorite thing about quiches is how you can adapt them to use what you have and what you like. Use any kind of cheese, or add extra veggies like chopped bell pepper, mushrooms or zucchini.

How to Make Spinach Bacon Quiche:

1. Prepare your pie crust. I suggest pre-baking the pie crust for 8 minutes.
2. Cook bacon, in a skillet. Once cooked, remove to a plate and chop. Remove most of the grease from the pan and add onion and spinach. Sauté for 2 minutes.

3. Add bacon, onion, spinach and cheese to pie crust.
4. Add eggs, half and half, salt, and pepper to a blender and mix until smooth. Pour the egg mixture into the pie.
5. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the egg mixture is set. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Store leftovers, covered, in the fridge.

Make ahead Instructions: Make the recipe through step 2. Blend the egg mixture and store the pie and egg mixture separately for up to 2 days (depending on the freshness of your eggs). Add egg mixture to the pie and bake as instructed.

Freezing Instructions: Allow it to cool completely then cover well and freeze for up to 2 months. To reheat, allow the quiche to thaw in the fridge overnight (if frozen) and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until warmed through.

Ingredients
  

  • 5 large eggs , beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups half and half
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach leaves , loosely measured, then chopped
  • 6 slices bacon (or turkey bacon), cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded cheese Swiss, mozzarella cheese, cheddar or Monterrey jack
  • 1 9 inch homemade pie crust , fitted in a 9'' glass pie plate

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare the pie pan with unbaked pie crust. Pre-bake the pie crust for 8 minutes (I always use pie weights or dry beans or rice on top of parchment paper to keep the crust from shrinking. After the 8 minutes, remove the pie, weights and parchment paper.)
  • Meanwhile, cook bacon, in a skillet. Once cooked, remove to a plate and chop. Remove most of the grease from the pan and add onion and spinach. Saute for 2 minutes. Add cheese, onion, spinach, and bacon to the bottom of the pie crust.
  • Combine the eggs, half and half, salt, and pepper in a blender, then pour the egg mixture into the pie.
  • Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the egg mixture is set. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Store leftovers, covered, in the fridge.

    Despite a last-minute impulse and quite the shortage of several ingredients, this recipe still came through! Will definitely try this again (except with ALL the ingredients)!

  3. 5 stars
    This was so delicious! Made with your crust recipe and in a pinch kept half the crust in the freezer while I prepped the rest of the recipe because I didn’t plan ahead. It was incredible and the crust was so tender and perfect. Will definitely be making many more times!

    Delicious spinach quiche! My family loved it. I will definitely be making it again, and again! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I made this lovely quiche and I did not have half and half only had heavy cream. Its in the oven now, don’t know if its going to come out right☹️

  6. 5 stars
    Super tasty and easy to make. I had my daughter’s make this for dinner and it turned out delicious and perfect. Cooked for 45 minutes.

  7. 5 stars
    Delicious!!! Only issue, I tried to double recipe for 2 pies. Ended up with too many fillings and not quite enough egg. But still a great recipe!!

  8. If using a store bought crust do not bake 8 minutes prior to filling it.
    It shrunk and when I poured the egg mixture in it overflowed .

  9. Made this quiche this morning and it was delicious! It was so easy to make. I went strictly by the directions. Will definitely be making this again soon.

    Made it this morning on the fly – DELICIOUS!!!! Everyone came back fir seconds. So I had to make another one to have leftovers!
    I have come to trust this website immensely- all the recipes I’ve tried have been really successful!!! Love that. Even passed on the recipe to my sister at her request.
    Thank you so much.
    Fan for life.

  13. I made this recipe this morning! I baked it about 55 minutes and the center was still runny! It was delicious, but thought if I had cooked it at a higher temperature, it would have been better.

    I made this recipe and I have to say, this is the best quish I have ever had! Tastes of delight and fun! 😀

    This is an easy and delicious quiche. If you have a smaller family like mine, it also makes great leftovers.

  16. I used 1 cup heavy cream and 1/4 cup milk along with the onions, bacon and spinach. I don’t use pie crust. I always spray the pie pan and sprinkle /4 cup of Quinoa for the crust. It is health and delicious.

    1. How do you bake w/quinoa for the crust? Do you cook as usual then form as crust & pregame like w/crust, do u add seasoning or what? My daughter in law would probably like that better than pastry crust

    One of the best recipes I’ve used over the years. Also added mushrooms which I precooked with the onion and spinach. I also used lemon pepper instead of salt. Adds a bit of a great, clean flavor. I give this recipe a huge rating! Thanks for sharing it with the world!

    This recipe is fabulously balanced and creamy when with made with duck eggs, deli ham, and red onion. We’ve made it a few times and love it — kids and in-laws no less! Although the recipe seems to employ fewer eggs, less meat, and less cream, it doesn’t feel like we’re missing out on any flavor. When made with bacon and baked ham the salty meat seems to overwhelm eat bite.
