Mom's Quiche

So maybe I was a little harsh in my introduction. My mom did pass down this delicious quiche recipe that meets my fast, cheap, and easy criteria. Joe was wary of it since it didn't have any meat, so this time I fried up a little bacon that I had left over and tossed it in the bottom of the pie crust.

- 9-inch unbaked pie crust (I use deep dish)
- 10 oz frozen spinach, cooked and drained
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 8 oz swiss cheese cut in 1/2" strips
- 2 tbsp flour
- 3 eggs
- salt and pepper

Scramble eggs and mix with cream. Toss swiss cheese with flour and add to egg and cream mixture. Add spinach and season with salt and pepper. Mix ingredients and pour into pie crust. Bake at 350-degrees for 1 hour.

One of my favorite things about this dish is that it's so versatile. It's just as good hot and gooey as it is slightly cold. It can go with me for lunch or to a potluck dinner. Plus, there are always plenty of leftovers!
