Kittys Spinach Quiche Recipe @pinch

A perfect blend of flavors in this scrumptious spinach quiche. It is a from havescratch recipe that reminds us of something grandma would make. The crust is flaky and a perfect shell for the spinach, bacon, and onion filling. There's just enough cheese to add flavor but not be overly gooey. Serve this quiche for Mother's Day, brunch, or when you want an impressive (but easy) meal. This is the best spinach quiche I have ever had. I usually make my own crust, but if you want a faster, easier quiche I am sure a purchased pastry shell will do the job. This is incredibly good even warmed in the microwave as leftovers.
