"Delicious quiche with the flavors of spinach, mushroom, and bacon, with gruyere cheese. Doesn't need a crust but I like to make quiche with crust."

Very good quiche which we enjoyed with blueberry muffins. Since I used pre-made pie crusts, I divided the quiche into the two pans -- one for today and one for later -- this works for me -- and I know everyone will enjoy the second quiche on another day. Only change I made was using onion instead of shallots and using regular mushrooms. Thanks for sharing!
