This is one of the best spinach quiche recipes I have ever had. It usually takes me a lot of effort to make a quiche from scratch, but this recipe needs minimal effort. You can also easily reheat this leftovers as a breakfast item or even a lunch item.
The perfect combination of flavours in this delicious spinach quiche. It’s a recipe made from scratch that makes us think of what grandmother would cook. The crust is flaky , making it is the perfect base for the bacon, spinach as well as onion-based filling. The cheese is just right to impart flavor but not overly gooey. This quiche is perfect for Mother’s Day, brunch, or any time you’re looking for the most impressive (but simple) dish.
