Mini Spinach and Bacon Quiches

Posted by Lori:

Last week I received the flyer announcing the 2011 Gooseberry Patch Country Friends Christmas book.  It had several great recipes just in the flyer - tempting me to purchase the new book.  This recipe is one I look forward to trying.  It would be great for a brunch!

Mini Spinach and Bacon Quiches

1/4 cup onion, diced
3 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled, drippings reserved
10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
15 ounce container ricotta cheese
8 ounce package shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 eggs, beaten

In a skillet over medium heat, cook onion in reserved drippings until tender.  Add spinach and seasonings; stir over medium heat about 3 minutes or until liquid evaporates.  Remove from heat; stir in bacon and cool.  Combine cheeses in a large bowl.  Add eggs; stir until well blended.  Add cooled spinach mixture; stir until well blended.  Divide mixture evenly among 12 lightly greased muffin cups.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until filling is set.  Let stand 10 minutes; run a thin knife around edges to release.  Serve warm.  Makes 12.
