Spinach Bacon Quiche

8 strips of bacon, cut up
3 Tbsp. finely chopped shallot
1 1/4 c. shredded cheese (cheddar-swiss or cheddar-montery jack)
1/2 to 3/4 c. frozen spinach, cooked and squeezed dry
5 eggs
1 1/3 c. Half and half
Dash of each salt, pepper, nutmeg
2-3 Tbsp. freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 pie crust

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fry bacon until crisp, reserve 1 tsp. bacon grease and fry (until tender) the shallot. Sprinkle bacon, shallot, cheese and spinach in bottom of pie crust. Whisk together the eggs, half and half and seasonings. Pour egg mixture over top. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let quiche rest about 10 minutes, cut and serve with lettuce salad or fresh fruit and croissants.
