This recipe is a spin off Paula Deen’s Spinach Bacon Quiche. I changed the recipe a bit and omitted the crust. No one seems to mind that the crust is gone. My whole family likes it (and with 6 kids, that’s saying something!) I’ve served it at parties/meetings and it’s been a hit. So hopefully it will be a hit with your crowd too!
Don’t like spinach or bacon? This recipe is super flexible, so you can change out the meat or veggie as well. I often make ham and cheese quiche or sausage and cheese quiche instead. So whatever your family likes, throw it in! See variations below.
Spinach Bacon Quiche
Keto, Grain Free, Yummy! Rich, creamy, and baked to perfection, full of bacon and sprinkled with a hint of savory spinach, garlic, and onion! Does your family like ham, sausage, tomato, or peppers instead? This recipe can also be changed to any meat or veggie combination, or just meat and cheese or veggie and cheese works too!
- 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese
- 3/4 cup Italian style shredded cheese
- 6 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- salt and pepper
- 12-15 slices already cooked bacon (I use the already cooked bacon from the store and just cut it up with kitchen scissors because it's more convenient, but feel free to cook your bacon fresh.)
- 3 cups fresh spinach
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1 tsp minced garlic
Saute onion and garlic in the butter. When onion is soft, add the spinach and cook down until no longer leafy.
In a large mixing bowl, combine cheese, eggs, cream, salt & pepper.
Add spinach mixture to egg mixture, then cut the already cooked bacon up into 1/2 inch squares using kitchen scissors and add to mixture.
Spray a round metal pie pan with non-stick olive oil spray and pour in mixture.
Bake 375 degrees for 35-45 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean in the middle.
This recipe is easy to alter! The main thing is the egg mixture (cheese, eggs, cream, salt & pepper). As long as you keep that the same, you can add anything else you want. I make ham and cheese quiche by just adding about 2 cups of cut ham pieces to the egg mixture. For sausage and cheese I cook 1 pound of sausage and add it to the egg mixture. You could also leave out the meat and do asparagus, tomato, and onion sauteed in garlic. Or combine the meat and veggies. Basically any combination you like will work, just make sure you saute the vegetables first so they are soft and savory.
