Spinach and Bacon Quiche

Spinach and bacon, swiss cheese and eggs - what could be better!

6 large eggs
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 lb bacon
2 cups, packed, fresh spinach
1 1/2 cups shredded swiss cheese
salt and pepper
pie crust (either made fresh or refrigerated)

Fry bacon, drain and chop into small bits
Chop spinach and pack to measure out two cups
Arrange pie crust in 9 inch pie plate
Layer spinach, bacon, swiss cheese in crust, sprinkle with salt and pepper
Beat eggs and cream until well combined
Pour slowly over spinach, bacon and cheese, allowing a bit of time for the egg mixture to settle in around the spinach

Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes until center is set. Re-heats wonderfully if there is any left over!
