Spinach Bacon Quiche- St. Margaret Mary Alacoque- October 16

Updated: Feb 3, 2022

As some of you know, I have a love for St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. She came into my life through an unexpected devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus which my husband and I enthroned our home to just after getting married. As I came to learn more about the Sacred Heart, this saint of course took a special place in my spiritual life as she is the woman we should thank for this increased awareness to the immense love of Jesus. And in addition to that, she just so happens to be the confirmation saint of my mother in law! There are rarely coincidences when it comes to our faith, don't you think?

In honor of her feast day I am making a tasty French inspired lunch, Spinach Bacon Quiche. I like this recipe because it's very light and can be served with a little arugula salad, veggies, or even a side soup.

Pull out your ingredients and lets get cookin'!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Bake Time: 35-45 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes to 1 hour

Servings: 8-10


1. 1 - 9 inch pie crust, I had one from scratch that was in my freezer but feel free to grab one pre-made from the grocery story. Also why you don't see mine pictured.

2. 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella

3. 6 large eggs

4. 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

5. 2 cups chopped fresh spinach

6. 2 cups chopped fresh mushrooms

7. 6 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped

8. Salt and pepper to taste

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and lay your pie crust into your pie dish. You can keep the crust from shrinking by putting dry beans or rice on top of parchment paper and keep it there for about 8-10 minutes.

While that is resting, let's give our other ingredients some attention!

Cook your bacon in a skillet and dice it up so that it will be ready for later.

Crack 6 eggs into a bowl!

Measure out 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream and pour that into the bowl of eggs.

Add a little salt and pepper to taste, no measuring needed.

Shakey, shakey!

Now whisk that together thoroughly to make sure that your eggs are completely blended into the mixture.

If you used the rice or dry beans trick, remove that now so we can dump in the other ingredients.

Chop 2 cups of fresh spinach and toss it evenly into the pie crust.
