Ingredients

  • 7 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 Cup half-and-half
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon dried parsley
  • One store-bought or homemade 9-inch pie crust
  • 1 box frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed
  • 1/2 Pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 Cup shredded Gruyère cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, salt, pepper, and parsley, whisking well.

Fit the 9-inch pie crust into a quiche pan or pie plate.

First add the spinach and bacon, then pour the egg mixture. Top with the cheese and, using a fork, stir to combine.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until the egg mixture is set.

 

Spinach Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Spinach Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
