Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Sparkling Wine, Champagne, and Bordeaux are great choices for Quiche. Even if you aren't making mimosas, sparkling wine is great with eggs for two reasons. One, if you're eating eggs early in the day, sparkling wine has less alcohol. Secondly, it cleanses the palate, which is important since yolk is known to coat the palate. One wine you could try is McBride Sisters Brut rosé. It has 4.8 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 24 dollars.

McBride Sisters Brut Rose

This sparkling wine exhibits a superb, long finish, backed by crisp acidity with complex aromas of red cherry, strawberry and floral notes.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Place pie crust dough onto a lightly floured surface and unroll it.
  3. Using a rolling pin, roll crust into a circle about 13 inches in diameter.
  4. Place crust into a spring form pan and fold the edge of the crust to the outside of the pan, pressing it into the sides of pan. (This is so crust doesnt shrink in baking.)
  5. Prick crust all over bottom and sides with a fork.
  6. Bake, uncovered, until crust begins to brown just slightly, about 7 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  7. While crust bakes, cook bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat until very crisp and brown on both sides, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  8. While bacon cooks, peel and mince onion, and set aside.
  9. When bacon is done, remove to a plate lined with paper towels, blot any extra fat, and set aside.
  10. Remove all but about 1 teaspoon of the fat in the skillet, add onion and cook until translucent, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  11. Scatter onions and half of cheeses evenly over crust bottom. Set aside.
  12. Finely chop bacon, and scatter half of it over cheese in crust. Set remaining bacon and cheese aside.
  13. Break eggs into a blender container.
  14. Add cream, milk, flour, pepper, tarragon, thyme and nutmeg, and process on high until very foamy, about 1 minute.
  15. Pour half of egg mixture into pie crust.
  16. Scatter in remaining bacon and cheese.
  17. Top with remaining egg mixture.
  18. Bake, uncovered, until top is light brown and quiche is just set (center should still jiggle very slightly) 55 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven and cool at least 15 minutes before removing sides of spring form pan.
  19. Quiche may be cooled to room temperature and frozen, still in pan and covered tightly with both plastic wrap and foil, for up to 2 weeks. Defrost in refrigerator 2 days, bring back to room temperature and reheat 5 minutes, uncovered, in a 300-degree oven before preparing to serve. Alternately, quiche can be refrigerated for up to two days. Follow directions above for reheating.
  20. To serve, cut quiche crust away from the spring form pans side with a serrated knife, leaving about a 1-inch crust side above filling of the quiche.
  21. Remove sides of spring form pan, slice and serve.
