    Lynn's Quiche
    This recipe is excellent served for breakfast with fruit or at lunch or dinnertime with a salad. This recipe makes two 9 inch pies. The quiche microwaves well the next day. In fact most people say that the flavors have blended better on the second day. It freezes well with tin foil. We love it for brunch.....and the men love it most!

    Prep Time: approx. 25 Minutes.
    Cook Time: approx. 1 Hour 10 Minutes.

    Makes 2 (9 inch) pies (12 servings).

    1/2 pound thick sliced bacon
    1 (10 ounce) package frozen
    chopped spinach, thawed
    1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts
    2 tablespoons bacon grease
    1 onion, finely diced
    1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, diced
    2 cups finely diced smoked ham
    8 ounces Monterey Jack
    cheese, shredded
    8 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded
    4 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated
    8 eggs
    1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
    1 tablespoon dried parsley
    salt and pepper to taste

    1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place
    bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat
    until evenly brown. Drain (reserve 2 tablespoons), crumble, and set aside. Cook
    spinach according to package instructions. Allow to cool, then
    squeeze dry.
    2 Heat 2 tablespoons bacon grease in skillet over medium heat. Saute
    onions until soft and translucent. Stir in mushrooms, and
    cook for 2 minutes, or until soft. Stir in ham and cooked
    bacon. Remove from heat.
    3 In a large bowl, combine spinach, sour cream, salt and
    pepper. Divide, and spread into pie crusts. Layer with bacon mixture. Mix together Monterey Jack, Cheddar and Parmesan, and
    sprinkle over pies. Whisk together eggs, half-and-half and
    parsley. Season with salt and pepper, and pour over pies.
    4 Place pies on baking sheet, and bake on middle shelf
    in preheated oven for 40 minutes. The top will be puffed
    and golden brown. Remove from oven, and let stand for 5 to
    10 minutes.
