Do you love bacon? How about cheese? If you nodded enthusiastically to either of those, then you're about to experience something wonderful...a Bacon and Cheese Lover's Pie. It's a quiche-style dish that's absolutely loaded with cheese, bacon, and some chopped spinach. You'll be smiling from your first forkful to your last. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust (from a 17-ounce package)
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup real bacon bits
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pie crust in a 9-inch deep dish pie plate and flute edges.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cheddar and Swiss cheeses; sprinkle half the mixture into bottom of pie crust. Sprinkle bacon bits over cheese, top with spinach, then remaining cheese.
  3. In the same bowl, combine eggs, half-and-half, onion powder, and pepper; beat until thoroughly mixed. Pour into pie crust; sprinkle with nutmeg. 
  4. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

What is the calorie count in this?

I bought regular pie crust, not deep dish. What changes do I need to make?

Dear Kitchen Team Can I make this without a crust and if so what would be the added directions for that option?

Hello! Yes, this quiche can be made without crust. Just add 2 more eggs to recipe and maybe a few more minutes to cooking time. Hope this helps!

Bacon Cheese Pie? Yeah, right. The pie is about 75% green. If you want accuracy, call it Spinach Pie.

Wow, totally amazing. What's not to love about bacon, egg, and cheese?!

This has everything I love bacon, egg, and cheese. The recipe is super easy, and I had dinner on the table in less than an hour. I used fresh spinach and it worked out well.
