This is a WONDERFUL base recipe, and so versatile. I make it (for myself, for lunch) at least once a week. I bake it "crustless" in a pyrex pie plate (which I "grease" with Olive Oil) because I don't particularly care for "prepared" pie crusts. I like it with Blue Cheese Dressing, but Ranch works nicely, too. I LOVE the Tuna/Spinach/Bacon mix, but (pre-cooked) boneless chicken breast (instead of tuna) works well, too. I LOVE Swiss chees, but sometimes I use Provolone, Velveeta or Pepperjack. Sometimes I include chopped onions, scallions, fresh mushrooms and/or bell peppers. One "pie" lasts me 2 or 3 days. Sometimes I make toast, sometimes I have Saltine or Ritz Crackers with it. Regardless, it's ALWAYS good.-27 Dec 2008

Mary Berry's Quiche Lorraine recipe

A classic French quiche is a great stand-by for lunch or supper and is always best eaten hot or warm. Baking the pastry &ldquoblind&rdquo first, without the filling, ensures that the pastry case is cooked through so it doesn&rsquot get a soggy bottom.

  1. First make the pastry: tip the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the margarine or butter and rub in gently with the fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add 3 tablespoons cold water until the pastry comes together in a ball.
  2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and use it to line a 20cm (8in) loose-bottomed flan tin. Ideally, use a fluted tin.
  3. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/gas mark 7. Blind bake the pastry case for 15 minutes or so.
  4. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Crisp the bacon in a sauté pan over a medium heat for 10 minutes, as shown below. Transfer to the cooled pastry case with a slotted spoon. Leave the juices in the pan.
  5. Place the onion in the pan and cook over a medium heat for 8 minutes, or until golden. Add to the quiche and top with the cheese.
  6. In a bowl, combine the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper, then pour into the quiche. Bake for 25&ndash30 minutes until golden and just set. Be careful not to overcook the quiche, or the filling will become tough and full of holes.

Bacon and Spinach Quiche

Bacon and Spinach Quiche is a baked dish made of eggs, heavy cream, and cheese (with bacon and spinach) in a pastry crust.

It looks like a deep dish pizza, doesn’t it? Although quiche is a type of pie that visually resembles a pizza, it is far from being one. Sure — It can accommodate different ingredients similar to pizza, but the presence of egg makes it different. In fact, quiche is considered to be more of an egg dish.

There is no particular time to eat a slice of bacon and spinach quiche. It can be eaten anytime of the day — be it for breakfast, lunch, snack, or dinner. I like to have a slice during the morning along with a glass of cold orange juice.

Quiches are a surprisingly no-fail dish. Unless you are trying to replicate a VERY SPECIFIC quiche you had at one restaurant, it's sort of a free for all, you know? Now, I have my go-to recipe that I've already got scribbled in a notebook- same for the crust, but I figured I'd been making so many Daily Cooking Quest recipes, may as well give this one a shot?
I'll be honest, I eye-ball a lot of recipes. I shouldn't. But I do. And this is a recipe you can get away with- and you've got a ready breakfast for a week! (Or a crowd for one day, hahahah) This is the ideal BASE RECIPE for a big, easy, egg dish (when you're too lazy to make a crust).
I ate it anytime I felt like, but I never thought to have it with rice on the side, but that's not a bad idea since it's lacking the pastry crust carbs! (I'm a huge fan of gyeranjjim, the korean egg thing, so maybe it's time to open my mind? hahahahaha)

Totally agree that it is almost impossible to fail at making a quiche unless you try really really hard and actually aim for failure. That said, my family prefers the crustless version because we are Asians, and even when I make the extra effort to bake this into a proper quiche, they'll all be like, can you please make it next time without the crust please?, LOL.

We love making this for a sunny afternoon eating outside.

I love how simple this is! and how adaptable! definitely a new go to dish for me.

This would be the perfect addition to a weekend brunch menu! Looks delicious. :)

I loved being able to do a clean sweep of the fridge and getting such a delicous meal out of it. A total recipe win for us!

Anita, this is very tasty! I used ground peppercorn instead of white pepper and added Pakko bread crumbs on top, about 20 minutes into the baking time, then continue baking it for another 25 minutes.
