Spinach, Bacon, and Ham Quiche

So this was my first experience making quiche.  It turned out quite tasty :)  This recipe came from Dish Delish, and it is awesome.  Being my first time, I didn't let it set long enough before cutting it and thought it wasn't done because it looked a little liquidy.  After letting it sit for about 15-20 minutes it was perfect.  I definitely halved this one and only made one quiche for me and the hubsters tongiht.  He liked it as well, probably because it is packed full of meat!

½ lb. bacon
10 oz. package spinach
1 c. sour cream (I used light)
salt and pepper to taste
2 unbaked pie crusts (I just went with store refrigerated store bought ones to save time)
1 onion, minced
½ lb. diced mushrooms (left these out)
2 c. diced ham
16 oz. Colby Jack or sharp cheddar cheese
4 oz. Parmesan cheese
8 eggs
1 c. half and half (I used fat-free)
1 Tbsp. parsley
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown bacon, drain, crumble, and set aside. Saute spinach in bacon drippings. Drain. Saute onions. Add mushrooms. Stir in ham and bacon. Combine spinach, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Add meat mixture. Mix in cheese. Divide into each pie crust.

Mix eggs, half and half, and parsley. Pour over pies. Place pies in oven and bake 45-50 minutes or until tops are puffed and golden brown. Let stand 5-10 minutes. Each pie serves 8.

**If reheating, cover pie with foil and bake at 325 for about 20-30 minutes, checking frequently to make sure it's not getting too brown. **
