Quiche is one of my favorite foods ever. Especially when it’s cold outside.
When I was a child, instead of leaving out cookies and milk for Santa Clause, my mother and I laid out mini quiches and milk because unbeknown to me, “Santa” was a diabetic, and didn’t need those cookies 😊
So today when lunch time started rolling around, I decided to whip up a quiche for my son and I to enjoy.
I’m calling it my Christmas Quiche, because of the beautiful red and green colors, and because of the memory of my childhood at Christmas time.
This recipe is super easy. It has red bell pepper, feta cheese, fresh baby spinach, bacon, sharp cheddar cheese, and obviously, eggs.
It has a smokey taste from the bacon, sweet from the bell pepper, and a saltiness from the feta cheese. It’s now a favorite of mine.
Here’s what you’ll need.
1 pie crust
1 Diced red bell pepper
3 strips of cooked bacon, diced
1 1/2 tablespoons of crumbled Feta cheese
1/3 cup of chopped fresh baby spinach
1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 400°
Mix all ingredients together and pour into pie crust. Bake quiche until golden and bubbly. It took me about 30 minutes.
Let it cool slightly and serve. It’s a great breakfast, lunch or supper idea. It’s not too heavy, not too light, but just right.
