I discovered this recipe a while back, but when I made it I knew it would be perfect for Christmas. It was kind of strange setting the photo up to look like Christmas months in advance.
This recipe for spinach, bacon, and tomato quiche was the first time I have made a quiche using puff pastry instead of a traditional pastry crust. After making it, I wish I had tried it sooner. It was so easy to do and tastes amazing. The combination of the vegetables with the cheese and bacon works so well in this.
The combination of the spinach with the tomato gives the quiche a very festive look for Christmas morning. Then add in baking with helps make the flavor amazing! Give this Quiche a try, even if it isn’t on Christmas morning!
- 1 (10 oz) pkg. fresh baby spinach leaves (about 6 cups)
- 1 (17.3 oz) pkg. puff pastry, thawed

- Press one piece into the bottom and sides of an individual quiche pans or a 4-5 inch custard cup. You will need 6 pans or cups.
- Cut off excess dough; discard excess pastry or use to “patch” uneven/thin places in lined pans. Place prepared pans on a baking sheet.
- Place 1 Tbsp or 1 strip of crumbles bacon in each pastry lined pan. Divide spinach, cheeses, onions, and tomato evenly among pans.
- In a bowl, whisk together half n half, sour cream, eggs, salt and pepper. Evenly pour into all pans.
