This is one of my most favourite 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.
Savoury brunch dishes like this one are sure to be a hit with family and friends!
Many other brunch dishes get the attention but I think quiche deserves way more! To me it’s the perfect savoury dish; filled with bacon, mushrooms, spinach, cheese, eggs and cream in the perfect vessel, a flaky piecrust.
My favourite way to serve this quiche is with a simple arugula side salad with a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice for dressing.

Lastly, add a tablespoon of water to the frying pan, warm to medium heat and cook to wilt the spinach just slightly.
With your baked pie shell on a baking sheet, layer in half of the cheese on the bottom of the baked pie shell. Next, layer in the bacon, mushrooms and spinach in the pie shell. And then top with the remaining cheese.
