I had never even seen a quiche until a few years ago. While I was in school, I worked at a restaurant at night and it was there that I learned how easy quiche was to make.
Today I made a couple of bacon and spinach quiche.
bacon bits- how much you use is up to you. I buy the bacon ends and pieces 5 lb box and break them up into smaller packages then cook them when needed. You will need them cooked before using them in this recipe.
4 cups shredded cheese (2- 8 oz packages)--any kind of shredded cheese will do but I usually use a Monterey Jack/Colby mix.
Spinach- frozen or fresh(cooked) with the water squeezed out of it about 1 cup.
1/2 a medium onion cut up- cooked 2-3 minutes in a tablespoon butter( I usually put it in the microwave in a bowl with the garlic for 2 minutes.
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
3 cups milk
2 deep dish pie shells
Cook your pie shells for about 12 minutes.
In a large bowl combine the cooked onion, garlic, spinach, cooked bacon bits and cheese. Put this mixture into the two pie shells and even it out.
Whisk together the egg and milk in a bowl. Now pour it equally over each quiche (coming only to the rim of the crust).
Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees (it is good to have a pan underneath them as sometimes they overflow and drip). Allow to cool some before cutting.
