Double Quiche Recipes! Bacon Basil Quiche & Spinach Bacon Quiche

Bacon Basil Quiche
Spinach Bacon Quiche
Easter is this weekend 
and we thought we would give you 
an early Easter present
with two recipes this week!

Two delightfully delicious quiches.
Both perfect for a Sunday Brunch 
or a lovely addition to 
Easter Dinner.

  Bacon Basil Quiche is creamy and smooth 
with provolone cheese, bacon, and fresh basil.

This light dish is a perfect meal
with a salad and crusty rolls.

You can use any pie crust you like.
Made from scratch, from a box mix, or
a ready-to-use pie crust.
We like to use Pillsbury Pie Crust.
So simple.
Layer your provolone cheese in the bottom of the crust.

Whisk your eggs.

Chop your bacon and basil.

Layer it on top of the cheese.

Gently pour the egg mixture on top of the bacon and basil.
Top with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and nutmeg. 

Fresh out of the oven.

And now your bonus quiche!

Spinach Bacon Quiche

 We have a family member who is a picky eater, but absolutely loves this quiche!
Imagine not liking salad, but loving spinach.
Go figure! 
In fact, she is the one who gave us this recipe.
Even if you are not a big fan of spinach 
this is a delicious quiche. 
Try it.

Start with a pie crust, milk, bacon, cheese, eggs, and spinach.
We use frozen spinach. Thaw it ,then squeeze with between paper towels to remove the liquid.

 Sprinkle half of the chopped, cooked bacon in the pie crust.

Whisk the eggs, milk, and flour together.
Add the spinach and cheese.

Pour into the crust and top with the other half of the bacon.
Bake for 45 - 60 minutes, until set.

Put your pie crust in a pie plate and flute edges.

  1. I made the spinach, bacon, and cheese quiche tonight for dinner & it was wonderful. I will be sharing on my blog sometime this week that I made it & found the recipe here. thanks so much for sharing!

  2. I made the spinach and bacon quiche and it turned out great! I bought deep dish pie crusts and the filling filled it up perfectly. I bet the regular depth ones would be too shallow. Easy and delicious!!
