This is one of my most favourite breakfast / brunch dishes of all time, my mom’s recipe for Bacon, Mushroom & Spinach Quiche.
I can’t quite remember when my mom first made this recipe for me but I know that from the first time she made it, I loved quiche. To me it’s the perfect savoury dish, filled with bacon, mushrooms, spinach, cheese, eggs and cream in the perfect vessel, a flaky piecrust.
So, to celebrate my 2-Year Blogaversary I’m sharing with you my favourite breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert recipes this month! And to start it all off is this delightful quiche that is wonderful for breakfast or brunch.
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Kitchen Equipment: baking sheet, frying pan
1x baked pie shell
5 slices of bacon, chopped and cooked
1 tsp olive oil
2 large white mushrooms, sliced thin
1 cup spinach
1 cup gruyere or swiss cheese, shredded
1 cup 18% cream
3/4 tsp salt
Pinch of pepper
Pinch of nutmeg
Bake your pie shell according to the package directions and set aside on a baking sheet.
Chop the bacon, then cook in a pan on medium heat until crispy. Next, cook the mushrooms in a frying pan with 1 tsp of olive oil until cooked. Lastly, add a tablespoon of water to a frying pan, warm to medium heat and wilt the spinach.
Pre-heat the oven to 375F.
With your pie shell on a baking sheet, layer in half of the cheese on the bottom of the baked pie shell. Next, layer the bacon, mushrooms and spinach in the pie shell.
And then top with the remaining cheese.
Whisk together the eggs, cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Then, pour the egg mixture into the pie shell.
Bake the quiche for 35-40 minutes until the top is golden and the centre is firm.
Remove from the oven and let sit 5-10 minutes to set. Then you are ready to serve!
Cook’s Note: You can always omit any of the bacon, mushrooms or spinach if they’re not your favourite ingredients.
My favourite way to serve this quiche is with a simple arugula side salad with a drizzle of olive oil & lemon juice for dressing.
So, maybe grab a couple friends or your family and make this Bacon, Mushroom & Spinach Quiche for brunch on the weekend!
Until the next cooking adventure,
