Recipe - Ham & Cheese Cornbread Supreme

I tried this recipe last night - super easy and super of those dishes you just can't get enough of!! We loved it! I cooked it in a pie plate even though it called for cooking it in a cast iron skillet. Dakota spent the night off last night so it was just Greg and I - you can see there's not much
3 slices bacon
4 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 pkg (6 oz) cornbread mix - I used Jiffy
6 dashes hot pepper sauce (I didn't use because I didn't have any)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (10 oz) pkg frozen spinach, thawed and well drained or
1 (10 oz) pkg frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and well drained (I used the spinach)
1 1/2 cups fully cooked cubed ham (1/2-inch cubes)
2 cups (8 oz) finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided (I used the Walmart fiesta cheese)
chopped fresh parsley for garnish (didn't use this - didn't have any)

Heat oven to 375 degrees
Beat eggs in large bowl.
Add milk, butter, cornbread mix, and hot pepper sauce, stirring until blended.
Stir in onion, spinach, ham and 1 1/2 cups cheese.
Pour batter into pie plate**(see alternate directions below)
Sprinkle remaining cheese over cornbread mixture.
Bake 30-30 mins or until set and golden brown.
While that's cooking, fry bacon until crisp, let cool and crumble.
After you remove from oven, sprinkle with bacon and parsley.

**Alternate directions (this is what recipe said to do - but I didn't follow recipe - I did what I typed above)
Cook bacon in cast iron skillet until crisp; cool and crumble
Reserve 1 Tbsp bacon drippings.
Drain off remaining drippings from skillet; wipe skillet clean with paper towel and return reserved drippings to skillet. Place in oven to heat.
Mix everything together (like directed above)
Carefully remove hot skillet from oven and pour batter into hot skillet.
Finish as directed above.
