Mexi-Greek Quiche

This is my own recipe, thrown together when I needed to get rid of some eggs and set myself up with healthy lunches for the week. It’s Mexican because I put a jalapeno pepper in it, and it’s Greek because of the feta, garlic and spinach combination. I guess it’s also a little French. Maybe I should name it Euro-mutt quiche. –AnglophileLV

3 Eggs
1 pie crust
4 pieces bacon
½ red onion
1 Jalapeno, chopped fine
2 Tb. Chopped sundried tomatoes

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crispy and set aside.
3. Chop the ½ C. red onion and cook in the bacon grease. Add the Jalapeno.
4. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, until just wilted. Turn off the heat from the skillet.
