Heather ColwellThe hens are busy laying eggs. While, I do sell some eggs (basically I get donations to put toward my feed so I get my eggs for free) I currently have a lot of extra eggs. This means I rely on my old standby recipe that uses a lot of eggs and makes a delicious meal. I turn to my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook for their spinach quiche recipe. This makes a great dinner or lunch main course. I often add a fruit bowl on the side or some grilled vegetables.

Spinach Quiche
Yields 6 to 8 servings.

1 pie shell
1/2 cups chopped onion
6 slices bacon, chopped
8 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup half-and-half, light cream, or milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
Dash of ground nutmeg, optional
3 cups lightly packed chopped spinach

2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese


Beautiful brown eggs.
