Spinach & Bacon Quiche with Jalapenos

April 15, 2014 (Last Updated: April 13, 2021)

Spinach & Bacon Quiche with Jalapenos combines super crisp bacon, Cheddar Cheese, Spinach, and Fresh jalapeno peppers’ heat. It’s a perfect dish for Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, and or Dinner. You can’t go wrong with a dish that’s so versatile and simple and fits into any season or occasion.

A Quiché is so versatile you can add or delete ingredients to make your own favorite Quiché at the drop of a dime. One of the things I did change about the Spinach & Bacon Quiche with Jalapenos was the cooking time on this Quiché. It tasted perfect. However, I would have preferred it to be a little less brown. Our original recipe called to bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. I have changed that time to 45 minutes or so below.

    I loved the idea of using japeno in your quiche! I use goats cheese and low-fat milk and greek yogurt to keep saturated fats at bay. Great recipe!
