Spinach Swiss Quiche Recipe

Warm wedges of this tasty quiche are packed with convenient frozen spinach, sweet red pepper and Swiss cheese. My family requests this dish year-round. You can saute the bacon mixture the night before to reduce prep time on busy mornings. —April Milner, Dearborn Heights, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. + standing YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 refrigerated pie pastry

"Very Good, with the red and green the dish it was great for Christmas. Next time I will pre-bake the pastry according to their package directions or make a crust; mine puffed up and shrank. The bell pepper makes this dish. Oh, and I added more bacon."

"This is a great recipe, though I made it with all real things, just the way they were put on this earth. It's the fat in dairy that helps your body stay slim and it's the YOLKS in eggs that have all the Omega-3s. Trying to strip off parts of real food isn't a good policy, in my opinion. Portion control, regular exercise and a positive attitude are the recipe for success! That said, this recipe is loaded with good stuff and tastes delicious. Thank you for sharing."

"Just break eggs into a glass measuring cup to equal the amount.  Should be 2 whole eggs 8 whole eggs to equal 2 cups but you may need an egg white as well to get the right measurement.  

I do it all the time."

"My family loves this recipe!! I decided to use 1 cup egg whites, and replace the other cup with 4 eggs. I've tried both an 8 and 9 inch pie shell, while reducing the spinach to 5 oz., and I STILL can't fit all the egg mixture in the crust. I'm afraid to cut back on the eggs because I don't want to end up with too much seasoning. Has anyone else had this problem?"

"My husband and mother love this quiche. I used fresh spinach and sharp white cheddar cheese instead of swiss; also used all white instead of egg substitute and no cottage cheese and turkey bacon. It was wonderful."

"I must agree with vieux as I too much prefer imported, real cheese, bacon and eggs. If you are going to make quiche I think REAL is almost a requirement. But to the recipe I've been making this recipe, sans the diet, lite and fat free stuff, I've also used other vege's whatever I have left over, for years and all of my family and friends love it."

"excellent recipe. I've been making the same thing for years although I lean towards full fat cheeses simply because I prefer not to eat wax. Given your penchant for low fat tasteless stuff I find it curious that you add salt. there should be enough in the turkey bacon (shudder) and cheese to satisfy."
