Spinach and Bacon Quiche

I've been a wee bit under the weather this week, so I've resorted to my favorite 'easy' meals. Breakfast for dinner. Unexpected and the kids loved it. I served this quiche with sliced fresh naval oranges on the side.

Spinach & Bacon Quiche {Paula Deen & Friends cookbook page 155}

6 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups heavy cream or milk ( I used milk )
Salt and pepper
2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach, packed
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crust, fitted to a 9-inch glass pie plate
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Use mixer to blend. Layer the spinach, bacon, and cheese in the bottom of the pie crust, then pour the egg mixture on top. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the egg mixture is set. Cut into 8 wedges.
