Spinach and Bacon Quiche

  This yummy quiche recipe is great to make for a brunch or as a side dish for dinner.  I actually made this one as a side for Christmas dinner and people seemed to like it.  The bacon adds flavor and a touch of salt to an otherwise vegetables quiche.  Spinach and mushrooms are my favorite vegetables to use in this quiche, but any combination of vegetables can be used.

2.  In a medium skillet melt the butter.  Add the garlic and onion and saute for 5 minutes.  Add in the spinach and mushrooms and continue cooking for 4 additional minutes.
3.  Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the feta, half the cheddar cheese, bacon, salt, pepper, and oregano.  Mix until just combined.  Pour into pie crust.
