Ingredients

  • 1 deep dish pie crust (storebought)
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup spinach leaves, chopped
  • ¼ cup green onions, chopped
  • ½ med. yellow onion, diced
  • ½ cup bacon, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups colby cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, shredded

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Pierce your prepared pie crust with a fork several times along the sides and bottom. Blind bake your pie crust for 10 minutes and remove from oven to cool. (This prevents soggy crust later).
  • Dice onion and chop bacon. Place in hot skillet over medium heat and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently until bacon is cooked and onions are translucent or slightly browned. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, egg your eggs. Beat with a fork until eggs are slightly beaten.
  • Add in milk, salt, pepper, mix again.
  • Add in spinach, green onions, the cooled onion and bacon mix, and cheeses. Stir again until combined.
  • Pour into a prepared pie crust and bake in an oven at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce heat and cook at 325 degrees F for 25-30 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.
