Bacon Spinich Quiche
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 onion, chopped
1 pkg.(10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained
4 extra large eggs
1/3 cup plus 1 teaspoon milk
1/3 cup MIRACLE WHIP Dressing (don't laugh, even if you hate it you will like this, but you can use mayo)
1/4 heaping teaspoon Penzey's Northwoods (spicy) OR Ozark (savory) seasoning or your favorite all purpose seasoning blend
1 cup and two tablespoons shredded Swiss Cheese (or cheese of your choice)
1 9 inch frozen pie crust (yes, frozen, it was a 50 hour work week).
1 package bacon, cooked and diced.
HEAT oven to 375°F.
COOK mushrooms and onions in large nonstick skillet with a teaspoon of olive oil on medium heat 5 min. or until softened and the onions are starting to caramelize. Remove from heat; stir in spinach. Beat eggs, milk and dressing in medium bowl with whisk until well blended. Add spinach mixture, seasonings and cheese and one quarter to one third of the bacon. Pour into crust. Top with remaining bacon. (The bacon on top gets crispy, so if you want more crispy bacon taste, put less bacon into the filling).
BAKE 50 min.or until center is set and top is golden brown.
