This quiche has a buttery crust, a fluffy egg center with smoky and salty bacon, and a blend of two cheeses.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

To prepare crust, weigh or lightly spoon flours and potato starch into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Place flours, potato starch, xanthan gum, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor; pulse 2 times or until blended. Add butter; process 30 seconds or until mixture resembles coarse meal. With processor on, slowly add milk and 1 egg through food chute; process until dough forms a ball.

Step 3

Press mixture gently into a 4-inch circle on plastic wrap; cover. Chill 30 minutes. Slightly overlap 2 sheets of plastic wrap on work surface. Unwrap and place chilled dough on plastic wrap. Cover dough with 2 additional sheets of overlapping plastic wrap. Roll dough, still covered, into a 12-inch circle. Remove top sheets of plastic wrap; fit dough, plastic wrap side up, into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Remove remaining plastic wrap. Fold edges under; flute. Pierce bottom and sides of dough with a fork. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Step 4

To prepare filling, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble. Add spinach to drippings in pan; sauté 1 minute or until spinach wilts.

Step 5

Layer spinach, bacon, and cheeses in crust. Combine milk, pepper, 1/8 teaspoon salt, eggs, and egg whites in a medium bowl; stir well with a whisk. Pour over layered ingredients in crust.

Step 6

Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown and eggs are set. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.

You answered my question. I also prefer to use a ready-made crust - much less complicated! May I ask how long you bake the ready-made crust before adding the other ingredients? Thank you!

Can't rate the crust b/c I used a frozen pie crust (I know, I know; the worst fats!), but didn't want to buy all those ingredients for the crust that I'll probably never use again. The filling though, was delicious.

So this was my first attempt at quiche, lovely flavor and easy recipe. I do have to confess I used a ready made crust but I had one left from the holiday. Worked for me!Wondering if they make a pie plate that is specifically made for quiche? All my egg mixture did not fit on top of the layers of cheese and spinach? Seemed too much milk, next attempt I will definitely cut down on the amount of milk. Also when I wilted down the spinach in the bacon drippings...guess you need to pour off all the grease first.
