This recipe was pretty much a winner in my book. My sister (Codename: Gamer Psychologist) even commented that she likes when I make quiche for dinner. So, I knew I wouldn’t have a problem convincing her to try them.
I didn’t do too much different with the recipe other than a) make them individual size and b) use turkey bacon instead of regular bacon. Because of the leaner turkey bacon, there was no need to drain any fat from the pan as there was just enough to saute the onions and garlic.
Dorie’s tart dough recipe was enough to line five individual quiche pans. Plus, I had about half a cup of spinach, turkey bacon, and onion mix leftover. But, I’ll use that to make yummy omelets tomorrow morning!
I was rather surprised at the lack of fresh herbs in the recipe. I’m so used to “a teaspoon of rosemary here”, “thyme or parsley there”, that this Dorie recipe seemed a bit naked with only salt and pepper. Oh, well. I’ll just incorporate more herbs next time!
To see other bloggers’ spinach and bacon quiche, head over to French Fridays with Dorie. As usual, the recipe for this dish can be found in Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.
