Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, heavy cream, Mayan Sea Salt, Minced Lemon Peel, Premium French Thyme, and Fine Black Malabar Pepper until well-combined. Stir in bread, tomatoes, and spinach. Set aside. In a large, oven-safe skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil over high heat. Add steak to skillet and saute for 3 to 4 min., or until browned on all sides. Remove skillet from heat and transfer steak to bowl with egg mixture. Return skillet to heat and add remaining 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil. Line bottom of skillet with potato slices, slightly overlapping to create a solid layer. Cook potato slices for 8 min., or until soft and lightly browned on the bottom. Pour egg mixture over potato slices, shifting solid ingredients as necessary to create an even layer. Top with cheese and bake for 23 to 25 min., or until center is set and top is lightly browned. Carefully flip quiche out onto a cutting board and then flip again, so potato crust is on the bottom. Sprinkle with Italian Black Truffle Sea Salt. Slice and serve immediately.
