Bastille Day: Spinach, Tomato, Bacon Quiche

Bonjour, mes amis!

Yesterday was Bastille Day, aka the French Independence Day. Since I have a French degree, I decided we were celebrating by having quiche for dinner. If you saw this week's meal plan, you know that I was using a recipe from This Gal Cooks as a guide.

Though I followed the original recipe pretty closely, I did tweak a few things, such as using fresh spinach and subbing in a local gourmet salt. Here's the recipe including my modifications:

Spinach, Tomato, Bacon Quiche

9-inch pie crust
3 slices of pre-cooked bacon, chopped
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1/3 of Vidalia onion, chopped
4 large eggs
1 cup half and half
1/2 cup milk
1 cup shredded 4-cheese blend
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon L'Ecuyer's Gourmet Rosemary Salt
2 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake the crust for 15 minutes.
2. Beat together the eggs, milk and half and half. Stir in the bacon, spinach, onion, cheese, pepper and salt.
3. Pour into pie crust and top with tomatoes. Bake for 45 minutes.
4. Cool on wire rack 15-20 minutes before serving.

The original recipe said this yields 8 servings, but I'm saying it only lasted for 4 servings at our definitely went fast.

How do you feel about quiche? Do you have any special ingredients we should try?
