Canadian Bacon Spinach Quiche

Quiche is the answer to "what am I going to do with all of these small things leftover in my fridge? The basics are a pie crust, eggs, milk and cheese. Just about anything else can go in to the pie. This recipe uses a very healthy combination of fresh spinach and canadian bacon.

  • 6 Large eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cups half and half
  • Pinch of Salt and pepper
  • 2 Cups chopped fresh baby spinach, packed

  • 1 (9-inch) Refrigerated or Mom's pie crust

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
