5 Large Eggs
1/2 LB Bacon (thick cut)
1 Lb Frozen Spinach
8 oz package Swiss Cheese Slices
1 Pint Half and Half
1/2 tsp of each Salt /Pepper
2-Pie crust 9 inch frozen or home made.
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
On a Baking pan with a wire rack, lay out slices of Bacon and bake at 350 degrees until crisp. About 15- 20 minutes. When cooled enough to handle, cut into small bite size pieces. (you can cook the bacon in a skillet, I prefer the oven for even crisp bacon)
Add frozen spinach to a strainer and run water on it until defrosted. Squeeze out excess water.
Double up about 4 paper towels and add spinach. Squeeze out any more excess water, you want very dry spinach so your quiches is not overly liquid.
Chop up bacon and Swiss cheese into small pieces.
In a mixing bowl, whip up eggs, add spinach, bacon, cheese, Half and Half, salt, pepper, nutmeg and stir.
Divide mixture into two pie crust evenly. Sprinkle top with a bit more Nutmeg. Place pies on a baking sheet. Bake on 350 degrees for 45min to 1 hour. Check that it is cooked same as a cake, insert a toothpick and when it comes out dry they are finished. Serve with any seasonal fruit.
*Hints: If you see the rim of the pie shell is browning to quickly, add aluminum foil around the edges.
Keep pie shells frozen until ready to use, this will make easier to handle.
To give as a gift, let Quiche cool and wrap in a colorful saran wrap with a pretty bow or ribbon!
**If you do not like Bacon, substitute with crab meat, ham or breakfast sausage to taste.
