    I used 250 grams rindless diced bacon, TRUE! And blended ricotta and cheese with electric hand mixer too! Thought it would make it easier to spread for me! NO EGGS!!!! WOW!!! A BONUS FOR ME!! THANKS!

    I made this as a side dish for dinner with pork chops and it was great! Mine was a bit runny, but I think that was because I didn't drain the tomatoes well enough or let it sit out before cutting into it. My roomie couldn't believe there was no egg and kept calling it quiche!

    I tried to eat this for breakfast, but just couldn't stomach it, too much spice for me. My mom took this to work for lunch and she raved about how great it was. I never tried it later in the day, but I'm sure it would have tasted as good as she said. If I make it again, it will be for lunch or dinner.

    This is excellent. I have made it twice - the first time as written in the recipe and the second time with a 28oz can of tomatoes and 6 pieces of back bacon as I didn't have a pie plate and used a quiche plate which was a little bigger. I too really dislike cooked spinach but found this delicious - no problem with texture or taste. Great for breakfast, brunch, or lunch.
