I made the quiche crustless by serving it in individual ceramic tart dishes. I thought I would miss the crust, but the quiche is so light and fluffy and flavorful, I honestly didn't.
The bacon adds a rich smokiness. The sautéed spinach give it some good umami flavor. But my favorite part of the quiche is the cream cheese. It doesn't spread during baking. Instead, you are left with these creamy sour bites throughout. It was the ingredient that brought the most brightness and uniqueness. I promise, you will enjoy this recipe.
Crustless Bacon Spinach Cream Cheese Quiche Recipe
- Servings: 6
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- 3 large eggs (or 4 medium)
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1 6 oz bag of spinach
- 3 slices cooked bacon
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 3 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese (brick)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 350F.
Chop and sauté the spinach in a pan with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, and and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Thoroughly drain, and use a paper towel to get as much moisture as possible out of the spinach.
Put 3 large eggs in a bowl, and lightly whisk until the whites and yolks are completely combined. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1 1/2 cups of cream, and lightly whisk until combined.
Roughly chop the bacon, and cut the cream cheese into 1/4 inch cubes.
Put six tart dishes on a baking sheet. Divide the spinach, thyme, bacon, and cream cheese evenly amongst the dishes.
Pour the liquid mixture into each dish, until it is about 3/4ths full. You can gently stir with a spoon if any of the ingredients are poking out of the top.
Note that we used 5 oz tart dishes which make nice single servings, but any cookware will work. There should be just over 2 cups of liquid.
Move the baking sheet to the oven, and cook for about 20 minutes, until the center is no longer liquid, but it should jiggle and have a soft texture.
Serve hot or cold. These will last in the fridge for 3 days, so you can make them beforehand and pull them out for brunch. They reheat nicely, one minute in the microwave.

We just got back from our annual trip to Disneyland. It's such a different experience seeing Disneyland through my eight-year-old daughter's eyes. It's no longer kitschy and ironic, like when I was in my twenties.
Through her eyes, it's pure unadulterated magic. I think that's one of the gifts of becoming a parent... a total change in perspective and an earnestness that almost hurts your heart.
We're used to seeing wine and cheese tasting parties, so I decided to mix it up and throw a beer and cheese tasting party. And here's why I did it... Beer brings a different vibe to a party, a little more casual. Beer goes with almost anything, so it's actually easier to pair beer with cheese. And finally, I'm more of a novice in the world of beer so it was fun for me to learn
I recommend throwing a beer and cheese tasting party if your guests don't know each other well. Tastings work as excellent conversation starters. "What'd you think of the manchego?" "I thought it was a little strong but tasty."
Plus, chances are there will be a beer-lover in the mix, who will be very excited that you are elevating beer to its "rightful" place.
So let's start with the basics. I wanted this to be a non-fussy table, so I used kraft paper as my tablecloth. I put each of the four beers out, ranging from light amber to stout, and wrote on the kraft paper what flavor notes they should find in each one. I had a tasting with my husband beforehand. :)
The beers I served were some fun ones:
I also chose 4 cheeses, put those out on a slate cheese board, and with a soapstone crayon, which is safe to use with food, wrote the names of the cheeses on the board. I chose a mix of hard and soft cheese, strong and mild flavors.
The cheeses I served were:
To finish out my table, I wanted to make sure there was a lot of "crunchy," so I put out Town House crackers in Flatbread, Pita, Original, and Pretzel flavors.
Like in my previous lemon chive goat cheese dip post, I like to put out lots of interesting flavors, so I also added macadamia nuts, grapes, dried tangerines, cherry tomatoes, olives, and pepper jelly.
I thought the table looked robust and inviting, just how I imagined it. I garnished the cheese board with a sprig of rosemary from my garden as a final touch. It smelled so good and added to the rustic feel.
I can't tell you what my favorite beer and cheese combination was. I can tell you that because I couldn't decided, I kept going back for more. :)
From presentably munch-able options, to dipping inspiration, to versatile possibilities, we have the variety that will help her stylishly host any type of gathering - from planned to impromptu.

We moved into our house about a year and a half ago, and while our house looks pretty furnished, our walls are bare. I set up a dessert table photo shoot five months ago, and hung a pink paper lantern and tassel garland from my ceiling for decoration. Because our walls are so empty, I never removed it.
I have this fantasy of creating one of those ginormous three-piece triptychs from photos I've shot, that would totally wow my friends, but so far it's just a fantasy.
So I was happy when Ace Hardware asked me to create a small project for my house using one of their 31 Days of color paints. It was the kick in the butt I needed to make something real and achievable.
I chose Steelhead Red as my color of choice because I love orangey-reds.
Here's the cute sample they sent with some paint swatches to inspire me.
I went to Target and bought a set of three picture frames. I liked the modern feel and the size of the mirrors, but I didn't like the grey, too sad. So I taped up all the white areas and got painting.
Here's my big can of Steelhead Red. It was vibrant but not too over-the-top.
I spent the next day on my patio painting. I found it so weirdly relaxing. I just wanted to keep adding coats.
And here's how my mirrors turned out. I hung them in a cozy nook in my dining room. I really like the modern lines, the pop of color, and that I finally got my three-piece triptych!
And I even hung the pink paper lantern with the tassel garland back up because I loved the way it reflects in the mirrors. I have a feeling this might be my new dining room set-up. What do you think?
Going to The Paint Studio at Ace is like going to your neighbor.
