Sausage, Mushroom, Spinach Quiche

This was by far the best quiche I have ever had!  One of the things that I love about quiche is you can do so many different variations by switching up the cheeses and adding different veggies.  I just loved this combination and was thrilled that Serena had two helpings

Sausage, Mushroom, Spinach Quiche

2 deep dish pie crust
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 red onion, diced
1 pound hot sausage
1 package mushrooms, diced up
1 box chopped spinach, defrosted and water squeezed out
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
4 eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream
black pepper

In a skillet, over medium-high heat, saute onion in olive oil for about 3-4 minutes.  Add the sausage, crumbling as it cooks.  After approximately 7-8 minutes of cooking the sausage, add the diced mushrooms to the skillet.  Once sausage is completely cooked, reduce heat to low until the mushrooms are tender, just a couple more minutes.  Remove from heat and add in the chopped spinach and shredded cheese, mixing all the ingredients together.  Beat the eggs with the heavy cream, seasoning with black pepper, and add to the meat mixture.  Mix everything and pour into the two pie crust.  Wet the rim of each crust lightly with water and bake on 350 degrees for about 30-40 until top of quiche is golden.
