Turnip Greens, Bacon and Shiitake Quiche

Sharing is caring!

Today was Basket-A-Month day!  After a 2 month hiatus I am so glad to be getting fresh local food again!  Today’s basket was beautiful and contained Turnip Greens, Spring Mix, Shiitake Mushrooms, Bacon, Sweet Potatoes, Brown Rice, Butter, Milk, Cheese, Sorghum (or Honey in some baskets), a jelly and Eggs.  The eggs in the Searcy baskets came from my chickens!  How cool is that.

I LOVE quiche.  Richie hates quiche.  I love mushrooms and dont mind greens.  Richie hates both.  Richie is not here today. I am making quiche!

6 Slices of Alderbrook bacon, chopped
6-8  Shiitake Mushroom, sliced
1 1/2 cups Seven Doves milk
1 pkg. Daley Dairy Cheese, shredded (I used white cheddar)
1 bag of BAM Turnip Greens, stemmed and chopped
4-6 Fresh Eggs
2 Tbs. Fresh Butter
2 Tbs. flour
1/2 red onion, chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
Fresh ground nutmeg
1 9-in pie crust

Chop bacon and cook over medium/low heat until cooked through. Remove from the pan and add the chopped onion.  Cook 2-3 minutes and add the mushrooms and chopped greens.  Mix and cover. Cook about 5 minutes or so until greens have wilted and are tender.  Season with salt, pepper and ground nutmeg.

In a bowl combine eggs, flour, cheese and milk.  Stir until incorportated. Add in bacon and green mixture.  Stir.

Place the crust in the pie dish and line with foil and add pie weights or dried beans.  Pre-bake your crust at 375 for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Remove foil and beans and pour in the custard mixture.  Return to the oven and bake about 30 minutes until the top begins to brown and the custard has set. (The middle may jiggle just a bit).

Serve this with a salad for a yummy meal!  Mix a little of that Sorghum or Honey into some balsamic vinegar with a little olive oil, salt and pepper for a yummy dressing!

  1. This looks great. I might have to try this one. I bet I could use some green onions instead of red since I have green in the garden. Have you ever frozen quiche? wonder how that would work.

    1. Yup! I was going to use it to sauté the veggies but I ended up just using the bacon grease. I’ll fix that tomorrow! Thanks for letting me know. I wrote the recipe and then cooked it and forgot to edit that part! 🙂

  2. Hi Julie. Found you through the Arkansas Women Bloggers site. I am impressed with your garden plans! We just finished building our first raised garden bed (12×4) this weekend, so I’m feeling a little anxious about learning how to grow things.

    We also get the BAM. I wish I would have seen this post earlier – we’ve already devoured our bacon and most of the eggs. Can’t figure out what to do with those turnip greens…

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts!
