Happy Thursday everyone! I’m just about to make your day with an awesome recipe.

This recipe is not only sooooo tasty, but very easy. You can throw it together in about 10 minutes and then let the oven do all of the work. I made mine on Sunday night, covered it with cling wrap and refrigerated it until Monday night. When Brad got home from work, he uncovered it and baked it for about an hour. It would also work to bake it the night before and then just warm it up, when your ready for dinner. I know…..because leftovers were awesome.

The tastiest quiche ever and super easy!
Ingredients
  • +For the Crust+
  • 2 cups almond meal/flour I used Trader Joe's almond meal. Great price!
  • 3 tbsp pure raw honey local, if possible
  • 2 tbsp olive oil coconut oil would also work
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • +For the Filling+
  • 1-1/2 cup almond milk any milk would work, I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1/4 tsp salt more to taste if desired
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 4 slices cooked turkey bacon diced (I use Applegate or Trader Joe's brand.)
  • 1/2 tsp basil dried
  • 1/2 tsp oregano dried
  • 1/2 cup light shredded cheese omit, if Paleo (I used Trader Joe's 3 cheese blend.)
  • 1/2 10 oz. box frozen chopped or cut spinach, thawed and drained (I use Cascadian Farm brand.)
Instructions
  1. +For the Crust+
  2. Stir all crust ingredients together in a medium bowl. Transfer mixture to a 9 inch pie plate and press down and together with your fingers. Mixture will seem really crumbly, but once you get it pressed together, it won't be so crumbly and crust does not crumble when sliced.
  3. +For the Filling+
  4. Whisk all ingredients together in a medium bowl and pour into crust.
  5. Bake at 375 F for 50-60 mins and until eggs have set.
  6. After quiche is finished cooking, allow it to cool for about 15 mins, if you're able to wait and if you're not, just go right ahead and dig in.

A couple of notes about the ingredients….

  • If I’m using bacon in a recipe, I like cooking it in the oven; that way it can be cooking while I’m preparing other ingredients and there’s less mess. I cover a baking pan with foil and spray it with cooking spray and bake the bacon slices (not overlapping) at 375 F for 20 mins. Also, be sure to check the ingredients on your bacon. Most brands contain sodium nitrate; which I personally will not eat. This is a preservative added to many meat products, like bacon, deli meat and hot dogs. The research is a bit conflicting, but much of it says that sodium nitrate may cause heart disease and cancer. Both Applegate and Trader Joe’s bacon do not contain any nasty ingredients.
  • I added a bit of lite cheese to my quiche. However, if you are Paleo, just omit the cheese. It will taste just as amazing!
  • In my opinion, the crust really makes this quiche. I use this same crust for all different recipes, even desserts. It’s awesome!
  • I only used half the spinach because my kiddos can get a little overwhelmed with too much green stuff in their food. 🙂 If you like spinach, use the whole box.

Just make it, you will surely thank me! I have another quiche recipe here, if you’re wanting to change things up.
