Description

Classic BLT flavors with a breakfast twist. This fully loaded BLT quiche recipe takes breakfast or brunch to the next level! (Gluten Free + Paleo Friendly)


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 (9″) pie crust (gluten free or paleo, as needed)
  • 2 cups spinach or baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup finely minced onion or shallot
  • 1 cup large diced tomatoes (or halved cherry/grape tomatoes)
  • 8 oz. bacon, crisped and crumbled
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (we like unsweetened almond or cashew–use what you drink!)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • Optional: 2 Tbsp. fresh herbs for garnish, such as cilantro, basil, or parsley

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Prepare your pie crust for “blind baking” (baking without filling). Gently pat down a piece of parchment onto the bottom of the uncooked pie crust. Pour in some pie weights or about 1-1 1/2 cups dried beans to weigh down the parchment.
  3. Pre-bake the crust at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until it’s set but not golden. (It will continue cooking in the oven as the quiche bakes.)
  4. Remove crust from oven and carefully remove parchment and pie weights/beans.
  5. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees F.
  6. Prepare the quiche filling. Add spinach, onion, tomatoes, and cooked bacon to the pre-baked pie crust.
  7. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Whisk or blend with an immersion blender until completely smooth.
  8. Pour egg custard mixture into the pie crust over the veggies/bacon.
  9. Place quiche on a baking sheet (to prevent any spills) and bake at 350 degrees F. for 40-50 minutes, or until almost the entire quiche is set, but the center is *slightly* wobbly. (It will continue to set as it cools.)
  10. Allow the quiche to cool at least 15-20 minutes before slicing. (The center should no longer be wobbly)
