Real men don't eat quiche - or so the saying goes. I am not a bloke, so I wasn't phased by this week's French Fridays with Dorie recipe being for spinach and bacon quiche.
This quiche is unusual in that it contains more bacon and spinach than cream and eggs. In fact, there is so little cream/egg mixture that there is barely enough to cover the rest of the filling.
The quiche comprises a tart dough, rolled out to line a pie dish, then partially baked before being filled with steamed spinach, bacon, onion and garlic, then topped by a mixture of cream and eggs and sprinkled with Parmesan before being baked until set.
I used baby spinach; baked the bacon instead of frying it; and used light sour cream instead of heavy cream. The end result was pretty good to me:
This is perfect picnic or weekend food - it is easily cut into portions and will travel, and tastes good hot or cold.
