Spinach Swiss Quiche

Warm wedges of this tasty quiche are packed with convenient frozen spinach, sweet red pepper and Swiss cheese. My family requests this dish year-round. You can saute the bacon mixture the night before to reduce prep time on busy mornings. —April Milner, Dearborn Heights, Michigan
