These quiche-like appetizers, loaded with spinach, bacon and Swiss cheese, not only taste great, but are easy to make because they use refrigerated pie crusts.

package (about 14 ounces) refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts), at room temperature
cup sour cream
teaspoon ground nutmeg
teaspoon ground red pepper
cup shredded Swiss cheese
tablespoons finely chopped onion
tablespoons thawed and well drained chopped frozen spinach
tablespoons crisp-cooked bacon, finely chopped
Heat the oven to 400ºF.
Place 1 pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pie crust to 1/8-inch-thick. Cut the crust into 12 (2 3/4-inch) circles with a cutter. Repeat with the remaining pie crust, making 24 circles in all. Press the pastry circles into 24 (2 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups.
Beat the eggs, sour cream, mustard, nutmeg and red pepper in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk. Stir in the cheese, onion, spinach and bacon. Spoon about 1 tablespoon filling into each muffin-pan cup. Sprinkle with additional nutmeg, if desired.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the tarts are golden brown. Let the tarts cool in the pans on wire racks for 10 minutes.
