I feel like I say this about everything, but one of my favorite foods is quiche. I could eat quiche every day. We hadn't made it for a while, so Sunday night, we decided to make one.

I found a recipe in America's Favorite Brand Name Light Cooking cookbook and used that as a guide. Here is the recipe plus the add-ins or substitutions I used.

Spinach Quiche
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup mushrooms
1/4 cup smoked ham, cubed
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teas. butter
1 (10 oz.) package frozen, chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1 (9-inch) pastry crust, unbaked
4 eggs (recipe calls for 1 cup Egg Beaters)
1 cup skim milk
1 tbs. all-purpose flour
1 teas. dried basil leaves
3/4 teas. hot sauce
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a medium skillet, over medium-high heat, saute onion, garlic and mushrooms until tender. Add spinach and ham. Spoon into bottom of pie crust; set aside.

2. In small bowl, combine eggs, milk, flour, basil and hot sauce, pour evenly over spinach mixture.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

We served the quiche with a side salad. Yum!
