Killer Quiche

Here is another recipe I just made from my new favorite food blog: I love quiche because it is so lovely as a nice breakfast or a brunch or even dinner. It is just a lovely sort of thing!
I even ate the leftovers reheated in the microwave and still thoroughly enjoyed it. Yum.

I'll paste the recipe here just for ease of those who don't want to go there:

½ lb. bacon

10 oz. package spinach

1 c. sour cream (I use light)

salt and pepper to taste

2 unbaked pie crusts

1 onion, minced

½ lb. diced mushrooms

2 c. diced ham

16 oz. Colby Jack or sharp cheddar cheese

4 oz. Parmesan cheese

8 eggs

1 c. half and half (I use fat-free)

1 Tbsp. parsley

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown bacon, drain, crumble, and set aside. Saute spinach in bacon drippings (I told you we were going to be naughty). Drain. Saute onions. Add mushrooms. Stir in ham and bacon. Combine spinach, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Add meat mixture. Mix in cheese. Divide into each pie crust.Mix eggs, half and half, and parsley. Pour over pies. Place pies in oven and bake 45-50 minutes or until tops are puffed and golden brown. Let stand 5-10 minutes. Each pie serves 8.
**If reheating, cover pie with foil and bake at 325 for about 20-30 minutes, checking frequently to make sure it's not getting too brown.
