Creamed Spinach and Bacon

Top Review by Candiss

This was yummy! My hubbie loves creamed spinach, so I had to try this recipe. I used turkey bacon, as we prefer it, and it came out great. There was a ton left, with just the two of us, so I used the extra (about half the recipe) to make a quiche the next night. I put the leftover Creamed Spinach and Bacon in a crust-lined pie plate, covered with 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, then topped this with a mixture of 4 beaten eggs, 1 cup milk (not half-and-half, as I think this would be too rich with the creaminess of the original recipe,) and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes, then at 300 for about 30-45 minutes. This way, I got two winning dishes from your recipe. Thanks a bunch!
