Spinach Quiche

Spinach Quiche

whole sweet onion, chopped
bag of baby or salad spinach 
6 eggs
1/2 c milk or cream (or half n half)
freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 -2 cups shredded swiss cheese
pie crust (refrigerated or homemade)

Preheat oven to 375.
Saute onions (add some pepper) without browning until translucent.  Add spinach and cook until spinach is mostly done, about 8 minutes. 
In a bowl mix eggs milk and a little more pepper.
Butter quiche (or pie) pan; fit pie crust in and shape edges if desired.
Pour vegetables in and spread out in crust.
Add cheese and spread loosely over vegetables.
Pour egg mixture over and bake for 35 minute.
It should not jiggle, center should not dent when lightly pressed and it should look kind of puffed and lightly browned.

Notes:
Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture before cutting ...
This one was made without a crust...
Also good with mushrooms (add after onion is done and cook until done before adding the spinach) and bacon ( fried and crumbled-add to pan after vegetables are done and just cook long enough to re-warm).
