Spinach Bacon Quiche…French Fridays with Dorie
It was teacher appreciation week at my son’s high school. I volunteered to send in blueberry muffins on Monday, then Nick read an e-mail about getting service hours for sending in more goodies on Wednesday. Now how does me cooking count as service for him? They were looking for quiches and egg casseroles…and when I realized a quiche was in our May queue for French Fridays, I told him we would be delighted to help.
I made both this spinach quiche and another recipe from Around My French Table…the mushroom and shallot quiche with thyme and Gruyere. I found fresh morels in the market so I bought a few to saute along with the button mushrooms. I sent the mushroom version in for the teachers as hubby, Bill, claims to be deathly allergic to mushrooms…hahaha. I’m on to him and his “allergies.” I made these in pie plates vs tart pans for easier transportation (plus I had a tin plate that I didn’t need to be returned)….there wasn’t quite enough filling…a tart pan would have made a nicer presentation.
My oldest preferred the cheesier spinach mushroom quiche which I featured last fall over this bacon version. I felt the real winner was the mushroom quiche…oh, boy, do I love the combination of thyme and mushrooms…I only cut a teeny weeny sliver to sample…but how I wish I would have saved a whole slice. I’ll have to make this one again.
