Spinach & Bacon Quiche with Jalapenos

April 15, 2014

Spinach & Bacon Quiche with Jalapenos combines a super crisp bacon, Cheddar Cheese, Spinach, and the heat of Fresh jalapeno peppers. 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 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 love the idea of using japeno in your quiche! I’ll try that in my own recipe. I use goats cheese and low-fat milk and greek yogurt to keep saturated fats at bay.

      I agree, Sharon! Let me know how you lighten up the recipe. We are big fans of Greek yogurt and goat’s milk/cheese in our home.
