Bacon And Spinach Quiche

Bacon, Cheese, Sausage and Spinach in this easy Quiche

I have never made a quiche .. until I thought up this Bacon and Spinach Quiche. I also do not know whether this can really be classified as one ? The only quiche I have ever had was the favorite "Lorraine", at restaurants or from Woolies!

My version also do not have a crust, but I believe that is acceptable.

On the odd occasion when I actually go to the shops myself, I tend to buy stuff that's either on special or I'll buy something on the list but for some reason, you know that ".. just in case.." reason, take double of what I really need.

I looked in the fridge this morning and saw all these extras which, on it's own, will definitely need more stuff from the store, to turn it into a decent meal.

So after taking stock I had : 1 pack Bacon, 1 pack Cheese Grillers, Cheddar (lots) and frozen Spinach. Just there and then I decided I'll use what I have, nothing extra from the store for today's dish.

This afternoon, I'm in the kitchen, busy at the stove, when my hubby asked over my shoulder "..what are you making .." (more in that sing-song voice that's translated into "When will the food be ready?") - I told him I haven't a clue, I think it will be a Quiche, but I'm not sure. He's a cool dude, so he said it's okay, he is starving, so it WILL be eaten.
