Katrina's notes for this recipe:
This is the best spinach quiche I have ever had. I usually make my own crust, but if you want a faster, easier quiche I am sure a purchased pastry shell will do the job.

This is incredibly good even warmed in the microwave as leftovers.

A perfect blending of flavors... a scrumptious quiche! This makes for an impressive presentation, ideal for a special occasion brunch or luncheon.


Cut shortening into flour using a pasty cutter until flour mixture is small pea sized beads.
Add water and blend by hand just enough to form dough, then roll out on floured cloth
Fit pie crust to pie pan, crimp and prick bottom and sides with a fork. Line pastry with heavy duty aluminum foil
Bake in 450 degree oven for 8 minutes, remove the foil, bake 5 minutes more or until golden. Cool on a wire rack
While pastry is baking, cook bacon and onion together in a medium sized skillet till bacon is crisp. Drain on paper towels
In medium sized bowl beat eggs then add the rest of the ingredients and blend together
Pour egg mixture into warm pie shell and bake for 45 minutes at 325 degrees. Cool at least ten minutes before serving.
