Spinach, broccoli and bacon quiche

It's been ages since I did a recipe post up on here! Let's remedy that, shall we? Cause I made a quiche today and I figured I should share. The recipe, that is, not the actual quiche. Sorry. Well, I mean, I have leftovers, but... don't show up at my house out of nowhere to collect them, okay? That would be slightly creepy.

You'll need the following:

  • 4-5 slices of frozen pie crust dough, thawed (about 1/2 lb)
  • 1/2 lb of bacon, diced
  • 1 small head of broccoli
  • 3-4oz of spinach
  • 6oz of grated cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 - 1 cup of semi-skimmed milk
  • powdered garlic, nutmeg, chili or cayenne pepper and mild paprika

Start by cooking the diced bacon in a dry frying pan. Depending on how fatty your bacon is, you may want to drain the bacon grease halfway through.

Cut off the broccoli florets and chop them into smaller pieces.You don't need the stalks for this recipe, but you can save them to make broccoli soup for lunch the next day. I was going to link you to my broccoli soup recipe here, since I was convinced I had written one in the past, but apparently I haven't. Huh. I think I may be posting another recipe tomorrow. :P Anyway, put your chopped-up broccoli into a microwave-safe bowl, add a bit of water, and pre-cook the broccoli in the microwave on high for about 4 minutes, then drain.

Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F). Grease up an oven dish -- you can use some of the bacon grease for this if you did drain it, otherwise use some oil or butter or cooking spray or whatever you'd normally use -- and cover the bottom and sides with the pie dough. Make sure to press the edges firmly together, and also, try to do a better, less patchworky job than I did.

Layer your ingredients on top of the crust: spinach, broccoli, bacon, cheese, repeat until you've run out of ingredients and are hopefully about a 1/2 inch away from the top of your oven dish. If you're way under or ran out of room, you picked the wrong size of dish, but it's a bit late to change that now. I picked a dish at random and got lucky, just-not-quite reaching the top and using up all my ingredients in exactly three layers of each. :P

Break your eggs into a medium sized mixing bowl and lightly beat them, either with an electric handheld mixer or a whisk.

Add about 3/4 to 1 cup of milk, a pinch of garlic powder and nutmeg, a tiny pinch of either chili powder or cayenne pepper, and about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of mild paprika powder. Beat again, then pour the egg mixture over the ingredients in your oven dish as evenly as possible. Bake quiche for 40 to 50 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the egg mixture has set.

Allow to cool and set for a few minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
