Quiche is commonly baked with a flour crust, but using cornmeal gives a bit more crunch. Once you try this version, you may never go back.

As the oven preheats to 400 degrees, stir together the cornmeal, flour, shortening, water, and salt until a dough forms. Line the dough into a greased baking pan and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper then stir in the spinach, cheese, and bacon. Pour into the polenta crust and bake for 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
