Directions

  1. Prepare and roll out Pastry for Single-Crust Pie. Line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry. Trim; crimp edges as desired. Line the unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of foil. Bake in a 450 degree F oven for 8 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes more or until pastry is set and dry. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook onion and bacon until onion is tender and bacon is crisp. Drain on paper towels.
  3. In a bowl stir together eggs, sour cream, half-and-half, salt, pepper, and, if desired, nutmeg. Stir in onion mixture, spinach, and cheeses.
  4. Pour egg mixture into the hot, baked pastry shell. Bake in the 325 degree F overn for 45 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. If necessary, cover edge of crust with foil to prevent overbrowning. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. If desired, garnish with cherry tomatoes.

I never follow the recipe exactly. I make it with whatever vegetables are in season, I increase the amount of pepper and add a little paprika or cayenne, and I usually make it without the crust.My only complaint is that it always takes a minimum of an hour to bake, even if I up the temperature to 350°F. That's more likely a problem with our oven (I have a thermometer in the oven; I don't rely on the oven's thermostat.) That just means I know I need to plan on in taking 60-75 minutes to bake.

This is my "go to" recipe for quiche. It's SO delicious and a real crowd pleaser. It's also easy to make substitutions and I love that! It does often make more than one quiche, but I consider that a "win"!

Pretty sure there is no way all those ingredients are going to fit into one 9" pie. o_0
