Bacon and Spinach Quiche
This one has been tweaked enough that I'm calling it mine! ;)
1 9 - 9 1/2" pie crust
10 oz baby spinach
4 strips bacon
1 sm onion, finely chopped
1 lg garlic clove, finely chopped
2 lg eggs
2/3 C heavy cream
1/4 C Parmesan, grated
Center a rack in the oven and preheat to 400.
Cook spinach just a very few minutes. Press dry and thinly slice.
Cook bacon, drain, absorb grease, and cut into thin strips.
Put 1 Tb of bacon fat into a skillet over med heat. Saute onion and garlic, season with salt/pepper and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Add spinach and bacon and toss to blend with more salt/pepper. Pour this mixture into the crust, spreading it evenly.
Whisk eggs and cream together and pour into shell. Sprinkle the top with Parmesan.
Bake 30 - 45 minutes until puffed (all the way to the center) browned, and set. Cool 5 minutes and serve.
