Quiche for Sue

My friend Sue came down for a Sunday visit.
What to serve for lunch?
Decided on an old standby, quiche.
Searching through my family recipe book came upon a quiche recipe from my sister Donna's friend Betty.
Never one to leave things alone I made a few changes .
This is the result:
Baking in the oven
Cut ready to serve

This was a great success.
I served it with tossed green salad, seeded French bread stick, lots of white wine , apple pie and ice cream.
And lots of laughs and chatter.

1 unbaked pie shell( used a deep dish 9 inch pie pan)
6 slices bacon , cooked til crisp and crumbled
1/2 10 oz. pkg frozen spinach, thawed and water squeezed out
1/2 medium sized onion, finely chopped
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
1 TBSP. butter
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups milk
5 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tomato, sliced
Saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender.Set aside.Sprinkle crumbled crisp bacon in to bottom of pie shell. Top with mushrooms and onion. Spread spinach evenly over bacon, mushrooms and onion. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of spinach. Beat eggs, add milk, salt and pepper, mix well.Pour egg\milk mixture into pie shell. Top with tomato slices.
Bake at 450 for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350 bake for another 20-25 minutes until crust is golden brown and center is set when pierced with a toothpick .

Sue is a water colour artist and here is the lovely card she made for me.

That looks really good Rosemary, I'm glad it turned out well for you. We're having Hungarian goulash tonight, I bet both would be good for when it is cold outside at night. Pretty card too. :)

Sorry but anything with mushrooms gives me the willies. But the card looks good enough to eat.

Just wanted to say I really like the frosted leaves photo in the header.
