NRW: Spinach & Bacon Quiche

This weeks recipe isn't one of my own, but one by the person my friend calls "Everyone's White, Southern Grandmother", Paula Deen! I promise you this recipe is easy and delicious and good for any night of the week!

Spinach & Bacon Quiche

  • 6 large eggs, beaten  
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream  
  • Salt and pepper  
  • 2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach, packed 
  • 1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled  
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese  
  • 1 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crust, fitted to a 9-inch glass pie plate

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 
  2. Combine the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender. Layer the spinach, bacon, and cheese in the bottom of the pie crust, then pour the egg mixture on top. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the egg mixture is set. Cut into 8 wedges.
