Spinach Quiche

Whenever I make pie dough, its enough for 2 pies.  If I just want to make one pie for dessert (although this rarely happens), I use the other half of the dough for quiche, for dinner. 

Here is the pie dough recipe: Butter Pie Crust

I adapted this recipe from

After the pie dough is in your pie pan, poke holes in it with a fork.  Bake it (empty), for 10 mins, at 400 deg.

While its baking,
Saute the onion in the olive oil until its soft.  Then add the spinach and cook until its wilted.  Alow to cool. 
(10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained - or 1 pound fresh spinach, cleaned and torn in small pieces
1/2 an onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil

While the spinach and onions are cooling, mix:

4 eggs
1-1/2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded cheese
4-6 slices of cooked bacon, broken into pieces

Then add the cooled onion and spinach.  

Pour all of the ingredients into the pie plate.  Bake at 375 deg, for about 45 mins.
