Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 single pie crust, store bought or homemade
  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese I use 1/2 mild and 1/2 extra sharp
  • 4 slices crispy bacon, crumbled
  • 6 oz baby spinach
  • 2 tsp dill weed
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Line pie tin with crust and crimp edges.
  • Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Add milk and whisk together. 
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and combine.
  • Pour into prepared pie shell. Don't overfill.
  • Place quiche on a piece of aluminum foil or a baking sheet with sides, in case it overflows.
  • Check after 30 minutes. If crust is getting too brown, loosely cover with foil and reduce oven heat to 425°. Bake until only the center of the quiche is slightly wobbly. Let rest for at least 15 minutes before cutting. Serve with side salad.

Notes

Place a rimmed baking sheet under quiche to catch any drips, so it doesn't make your oven a mess.
Quiche is done when center jiggles a little like jello.
Leftovers are good for 3-4 days.
To Reheat, briefly in microwave for about 60 seconds.
Do not freeze leftovers.
