PREP TIME: 15 min
COOK TIME: 40-50 min
- 8 slices bacon
- 8 eggs
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups chopped spinach
- 1 to 2 tablespoons bacon fat (reserved from cooking bacon)
- 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Slice the bacon crosswise into 1/4-inch strips. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until the fat is rendered and the meat is cooked, approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels; reserve the fat.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, garlic, chives, basil, salt, and pepper until well combined. Stir in the spinach.
Grease a 9 x 11-inch baking dish with the reserved bacon fat, then pour the egg mixture into the pan. Top with the bacon pieces and cherry tomato halves.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the quiche puffs up and becomes golden brown on the edges.
