Ingredients
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 8 oz frozen chopped spinach (thawed and excess water squeezed)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 store-bought pie crusts (usually from 1 standard pie crust package, see note)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (your favorite, I used Swiss)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half or heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for pan
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Cook the bacon on a skillet over medium heat. Drain on a paper towel and then crumble it.

  3. Heat some olive oil on a skillet over medium high heat. Cook the spinach with the garlic until very little moisture remains, stirring, about 2-3 minutes. Set aside.

  4. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, heavy cream or half-and-half, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Set aside.

  5. Unroll the pie dough. Cut smaller rounds from the pie dough to fit each hole in the mini muffin tin. I cut mine to 2.5 inches in diameter (I used a cookie cutter), and they fit my mini muffin tin perfectly. Line the muffin tin with the cut out dough rounds.

  6. In each muffin tin cup, add a little bit of cheese, spinach, bacon crumbles, and egg mixture. Don’t overfill.

  7. Bake for about 22-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes. It will start deflating a bit. Enjoy!
