B-Mom's Quiche (and it's low-fat!)

This is my mom's quiche recipe (actually it's from an old church cookbook but now she just remembers it) that she made a lot when I was growing up. Now that I have children, she is now B-Mom (because my oldest put a B in front of everything when he was learning to talk) thus the name. She made both a spinach and (turkey) bacon version.

Ingredients (for one quiche):
- pre-made pie crust
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
- 8 oz. shredded Swiss
- 1/2 onion chopped and sauteed
- 1 lb of cooked and chopped turkey bacon OR 1 box of chopped frozen spinach (defrosted & drained)
- dash of salt, and small amount of nutmeg in the spinach one

Really Easy -

Place the pie crust in a pie pan and use finger to scallop the edges

Mix all of the ingredients together and place in pie crust

Bake at 400 degrees until it looks done, my mom is very free spirited and doesn't seem to get along with timers or structure, she's an artist. The center will rise and brown when it's done.

Tip: The crust will brown before the entire quiche is so once the crust browns, cover just the crust with thin strips of foil and keep baking.

So good. Of course the kids preferred the bacon but I finished off the spinach:)

Looks good! I'd finish off the bacon one too ;-)
