Ingredients

  • 12 Bacon Slices thick cut
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Cups Onion chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 10 Ounces Spinach fresh
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Lay 5 slices of bacon side-by-side on prepared baking sheet.
  • Now, weave the bacon: (the photos above will better explain this step!) Fold every other bacon slice in half, then lay 1 slice of bacon perpendicular and over the bacon slices. Then, unfold the slices of bacon, and fold the slices that were previously laying flat — lay a second piece of bacon perpendicular and over the bacon. Repeat this process of weaving the bacon until you’ve used 10 pieces of bacon. (it’s easier than it sounds!)
  • I used 10 pieces of bacon for the weave, and baked 2 additional pieces on the pan — this will be the “sides” of the crust.
  • Bake the bacon for 15 minutes, we want it to be almost completely cooked but still pliable.
  • Carefully drain the bacon grease from the pan and slide the bacon onto a paper towel lined plate.
  • Place paper towels on top to absorb grease from both sides.
  • Place a pie pan on top of the weaved bacon (setting the additional slices aside), and grab the bottom of the paper towel lined to flip the bacon into the pie pan.
  • Adjust bacon as needed, and place the slices along the edge of the pie pan.
  • In a large skillet over medium, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering.
  • Add chopped onions and 1 teaspoon of salt. Cook until translucent, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Add garlic and stir to combine. Cook for about 1 minute, or until garlic is fragrant.
  • Add spinach and toss everything together. Cook until spinach has released its water, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Place veggies on a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess water.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, heavy cream, and remaining salt.
  • Stir in mozzarella and veggies.
  • Pour egg combo over the bacon crust.
  • Bake quiche in the oven for 40-45 minutes, you’ll know the quiche is done when the edges begin to brown and the center is firm.
  • Allow the quiche to cool for 10 minutes before slicing and enjoy!

Notes

  • To save some time: cook the veggies while the bacon is in the oven.
  • To save some carbs: skip the onion, or use less.
