This is a winner of a quiche. So simple (yes, even the pastry..) and so delicious. There is nothing like the combination of fresh spinach and bacon. It's a match made in heaven and I never get tired of it. I'm a big fan of breakfast dishes and will happily eat things like omelettes for dinner, so I was very excited to try this elegant and eggy treat.
I love that Dorie calls for sautéing fresh spinach for this. It doesn't take much longer than defrosting a block of frozen spinach and the flavor and color are so vibrant. I could eat this every day. I'm always looking for ways to incorporate more greens into my diet and this is my favorite option so far....with bacon and a pastry crust!
Topped with grated Parmesan, this quiche has all of my favorite flavors: minerally greens; toasty, salty cheese; crispy, porky bacon bits, creamy custard and flaky, buttery pastry. This made an amazing week-night dinner for us this week next to a fresh salad of greens and tomatoes (that actually tasted good). Thank goodness for spring!
