It is generally believed that quiche is a French recipe, but it has German origins. It is derived from the German word for cake, kuchen. Thus quiche is a savory cake.
Recipes for savory custard pies like quiche can be found in antique cookbooks, but the United States has been slow to adopt them. Meanwhile, the Italians have Frittata, a dish made with eggs, meat, veggies, and cheese. As for the British, they have their version, a cheese, and onion pie.

Pro Tips to Enahance Your Spinach Bacon Quiche?
- You can bake the recipe the day before and refrigerate it overnight.
- To reheat your quiche, cover it with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
- Leftover quiche can be packed in a lunch box and enjoyed cold the following day.
- I prefer fresh spinach to frozen spinach since the flavor is more prominent, and the quiche does not become watery or soggy. However, as spinach can be gritty, wash it several times to remove dirt and grime.
- Swap out a tart pan with a deep dish quiche pan. Make sure the bottom pan is detachable.
- I won’t recommend substituting heavy cream with milk. Although it would reduce calories, the taste and the shape of the quiche won’t be the same.
- The bacon can be substituted for ham or chorizo sausage.

Love this but need instructions on reheating after frozen and thawed.
I’ve made this dish for years and it never disappoints. I use cheddar instead of Swiss because I’m not a fan of Swiss and it tastes great.
