Here’s the best part of this spinach bacon quiche recipe: you can use whatever vegetables you have.
Sunday is usually when I scramble to see what vegetables are about to turn and I usually toss them in a soup. This time, I wanted to do something different: I turned them into an easy breakfast that I could grab and go throughout the week.
It’s full of veggies, satisfying, plus it had bacon in it, so I looked forward to it every morning.
I had a zucchini that was about to go, Brussel sprouts that would have been wasted otherwise, and spinach that was iffy.
Into the quiche, they went!

TBK’s Pro Tip: Don’t forget to add fresh herbs if you have some on hand!
Is bacon Whole30?
There is Whole30 compliant bacon out there. You need to look for sugar-free bacon (that’s also free of nitrates). It should be simply pork and salt, maybe some seasonings and lemon juice.
You may have luck going to a local butcher and asking them straight up for what you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for Whole30 bacon in Canada – Kirkland bacon (and Kirkland prosciutto) is Whole30 approved (source).
