Spinach, Bacon, and Mushroom Savory Pie

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by Chef Beebee

Of course, you can make many a variation on this savory pie (aka quiche), but this is my family's favorite. And a great dish to make ahead for guests (served at breakfast or brunch) or frozen and brought out on a night when cooking is the last thing on your mind. It is delicious! Tossed spinach salad is a wonderful accompaniment.

I never usually follow recipes but I did with this one and the result was really good. Tasty, satisfying and easy to make.
