I know most of you were on holiday or at work and couldn’t cook up a storm, but I did and I want to share this great bacon recipe with you. First of all, this is not a quiche, and even if it were, what guy in the woods doesn’t want bacon, eggs and cheese in a dutch-oven?
First, in your dutch-oven or a cast iron skillet, weave a lattice of bacon like this:
Notice mine is in a shallow pool of water. That’s because when you fry bacon in water you get the most amazing crisp-chewy bacon you will ever have. Once one side is crisp, most of the water will be evaporated.
Over all this I poured a batter of 3 eggs, 1 1/2 cups milk and 3/4 cup biscuit mix (mine was Jiffy Brand, but Bisquick is more common). Then I covered the top with shredded cheese. It baked in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.
I served it up sliced (see feature image above)
6 or more slices bacon, woven in a lattice and cooked crisp
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (4 oz)
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 cups spinach
3/4 cup biscuit mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper
- Heat oven to 400°F. Fry bacon crisp, saute onion. Wilt spinach in pan and return bacon lattice to pan.
- In medium bowl, beat remaining ingredients until blended; pour into oven-proof skillet or into a pie plate.
- Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
- Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

BTW before I made this, this was my best ever bacon recipe: Bacon Wrapped Dates
