Broccoli Quiche

As I am pretty much a fan of anything with a crust; quiche is a favorite of mine. I made a recipe for broccoli quiche about a year ago and I have been tweaking it each time since when I make it.
My original recipe didn't call for meat. As I wanted Husband to eat it I add bacon; it is also delicious with ham. Today I put some spinach in as the broccoli was cooking and let it wilt down. The spinach was an excellent addition. For the cheese I used an Italian blend instead of straight mozzarella.

The following is the original recipe from All Recipes

Broccoli Quiche

2 tbsp. butter
1 onion, minced
1 tsp. minced garlic
2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
4 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. butter, melted

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onions, garlic and broccoli. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft. Spoon vegetables into crust and sprinkle with cheese.
3. Combine eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in melted butter. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and cheese.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until center has set.
