SPINACH QUICHE

SPINACH QUICHE

1 pkg (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
4 eggs
1 cup pet evaporated milk
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. ground red pepper
1 pkg (10 oz.) frozen, chopped spinach, thawed and thoroughly drained
1/2 cup diced ham and/or chopped onion
1 prepared deep-dish pie crust, frozen

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until creamy. Beat in eggs, milk and red pepper.

Squeeze spinach until almost dry. Stir spinach and ham or onion into egg mixture.

Pour into a frozen pie crust. Season with salt and pepper, to desired taste.

Bake in a preheated 350°F oven on a preheated baking sheet for 40-50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Makes 6 servings.

Variation: Top quiche with tomatoes and sprigs of fresh basil, if desired, for added color.
