Spinach & Bacon Hash Brown Quiche

Oh my goodness. This was absolutely delicious. It was the perfect blend of eggs, hash browns, cheese, spinach & bacon. I knew from the smell as it was baking that it was going to taste so yummy. My husband loved it too! This would be good for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

3 c frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
1/4 c butter, melted
6 bacon strips, diced
1 small onion, chopped
3 eggs
1 c half and half
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 c fresh spinach, chopped
2/3 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 c shredded Swiss cheese

Press hash browns between paper towels to remove excess moisture; toss with butter. Press onto the bottom & up the sides of a 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 425° for 20-25 minutes or until edges are browned. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon & onion over medium heat until bacon is crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, cream, salt & pepper. Stir in the spinach, cheeses & bacon mixture; pour into crust. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
