Ingredients
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup of half and half
  • 2.5 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, mozzarella, or Swiss
  • ½ medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 package of frozen spinach, defrosted and well drained (I hand squeeze!)
  • 1 package of crumbled bacon
  • ½ cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp paprika, with additional for topping
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 can of sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 unbaked pie crust
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Roll out pie crust and place in a glass pie pan
  3. Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork and then sprinkle with ½ cup of shredded cheese
  4. Place the crust in the preheated oven for approximately 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts and forms a layer on the bottom. (This prevents the crust from becoming soggy)
  5. Lower the oven temperature to 375
  6. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, half and half, 1.5 cups of shredded cheese, ½ cup of parmesan, pepper, dry mustard, paprika, crumbled bacon, spinach, mushrooms, and onion
  7. Pour egg mixture into prepared pie crust and top with additional ½ cup of shredded cheese and sprinkle with paprika
  8. Bake for 45+ minutes, or until a knife inserted to the very center of the quiche comes out clean and the crust is golden brown

This is a great recipe to sneak veggies into!
