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
salt and pepper to taste

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.
