Bacon & Spinach Quiche

I really love a good quiche and I LOVE bacon. Honestly, what could go wrong with bacon, cheese and spinach?! Nothing, that's what.

Bacon & Spinach Quiche

3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups milk (used 2% organic)
1 tbls. flour
1 tsp. red pepper flakes (or less if you don't like heat)
dash pepper
~ 2 cups colby/monterey jack cheese, grated
9 oz. package frozen spinach, thawed and drained of excess water
8 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 store bought pie crust

Spray a pie plate and arrange the pie crust in the dish. Put a few bacon crumbles in the bottom.

In a large mixing bowl, add the eggs and milk. Whisk to combine. Add the flour, red pepper flakes and pepper and combine. Finally, add the cheese, spinach and remaining bacon. Stir gently to combine. (It may seem like too much liquid, but mine turned out fine.)

Pour this mixture into the crust and spread evenly. (I added a sprinkling of red pepper flakes on top)

Cook at 350 for 60-65 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle of the quiche comes out clean. Allow to set 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!!

Servings: ~8 pie slices
Total prep + cook time: about 90 minutes

Notes: I love quiche! Husband not so much, so there will be plenty of leftovers for me. :)
