Quiche is one of those things I can eat any time of day.
I absolute love Quiche Lorraine with some salad.
I made this on a Sunday afternoon, it was a real treat. Heavy cream, eggs, cheddar cheese, white cheddar cheese, grilled onions, bacon, spinach, and some salt and pepper are all the delicious ingredients inside this homemade pastry.
I knew I wanted cheese in the quiche, who wouldn’t?
But two types of cheese was a great decision. And I had half a white onion and half a red onion so I used both. And well bacon, bacon makes everything better. I’m salivating at the thought of bacon right now, seriously I could eat bacon alll day errry day.
And then since I am on a diet I added spinach, it made the whole quiche healthy, right?
Well that’s what I told myself anyways. This is the first quiche I have ever made and how easy it was! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE and can’t wait to make more!! Make life easier and use a pre made pie crust or make your own, so tasty!! Hope you make this Bacon, Onion, Spinach Quiche sometime soon, you won’t regret it!!
Bacon, Spinach, Caramelized Onions, White Cheddar and Cheddar Cheese make this quiche absolutely delicious, All nestled in homemade pie. This quiche is a cinch to make, and everyone loves it!
1 Pie Crust
1 whole onion, chopped into small pieces
2 tbsp butter
8 slices of bacon
7 large eggs
1 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 cup spinach
2 cups cheddar cheese
1 Pie Crust
Preheat oven to 350F and place pre-made pie crust into a 9 inch pie dish, set aside.
In a large frying pan caramelize the onions in the butter, it took me about 10 minutes. Once done put onions on to a plate. Add bacon to frying pan and cook until nice and crispy. Place a paper towel on top of a plate and place bacon on paper towel once done cooking. Once cool chop bacon into small pieces.
In a large bowl whisk together eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper.
Sprinkle bacon, spinach, onions and cheese on top of pie crust pour egg mixture on top and sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake for 45-60 minutes until set and golden brown. (mine baked for 55 minutes) Let cool completely before slicing, this is very important.
Due to my English background I am very familiar with Banoffe Pie. It is amazing and my Auntie Marguerite always makes it! Maybe because we always request it! 🙂 The other day we had a party for my sissy’s birthday and Banoffee Pie made an appearance. Some of our friends were in shock about how good it was. Thus here I am spreading the word about how simply delicious this is! And it is simple to make.
This truly is one of my favorite desserts. And you can easily tweak it to what you have on hand, bananas, berries, pineapple…the options are endless! Enjoy!! 🙂
* I used 2 full cans of cooked condensed milk, which was a bit too much but I have adjusted the recipe appropriately
1½ Cups Gram Cracker/Digestive Biscuits crushed into crumbs
1 Cup of Butter
1½ Cans of Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 Large Bananas
1¼ Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
¼ Cup Powdered Sugar
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
Milk Chocolate Bar for garnishing
Preheat oven to 300F.
To caramelize condensed milk pour milk into a large baking dish ( 13X9, 12 X 2..etc) just make sure the dish fits in your large roast pan. Cover condensed milk with foil and place baking dish with condensed milk in roasting pan and fill pan with water. Bake for 2hrs until the right, beautiful caramel color. Let cool completely
Turn oven up to 350F. In a small bowl mix together the graham cracker crumbs and butter, until well combined. Press into a 9 inch pie dish. Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes. Let cool.
Once crust and caramel cooled pour half of caramel over the crust and place sliced banana slices over the caramel and then top with the rest of the caramel. Chill in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
In bowl of an electric mixer combine heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. Whip on high until stiff peaks form.
Top pie with fresh whipped cream.
