Spinach Quiche – Make this easy Spinach Quiche with your favorite pie crust and serve it for a special breakfast or brunch!
OR QUICHE! You say tomato I say tomahto! Whatever you want to call it, it’s still one of the best and quickest dishes out there.
When I have a few things left over in smaller batches, I almost always blend them together and make a savory pie – meat, spinach, chicken, veggie, etc… add a few eggs, make a crust, and voila! After making the Stuffed Cannelloni the other day, I was left with a couple of cups of spinach and a bit of crumbled feta. I was also running low on whipping cream and the eggs were two days from expiration. Since I can’t bear to throw away food, I had to use them up. As I was going through my Google Reader, I saw a recipe for a Spinach Quiche over at Thyme In Our Kitchen and I was ready to go. Thanks for the inspiration, Matt!
I served it with my homemade yogurt and the flan dish was emptied within minutes. I had none because I am still Fasting – few more days to go. On January 7th (Eastern Orthodox Christmas) I will eat like I’ve never seen food before. 🙂 And wait till I introduce you to my Christmas Dinner – traditional Macedonian dishes; Selsko Meso, Sarma, Kompir, Pogacha, Ruska Salata, Makalo, Taratur, Torta, Kosteni. This will all make sense once I post the recipes and the pictures on my blog.
- 1 bag (8-ounces) fresh baby spinach, cooked
- 1/2 cup feta cheese , crumbled
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella
- 5 eggs
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375.
You will need to make your pie crust first. Please see how to make the perfect pie crust HERE. You can also use store-bought pie crust.
Take the chilled dough, roll it out and press it into the bottom of a 10-inch flan dish.
Prick it with a fork all around, and put it in the oven for 10 minutes.
Lightly whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl and add in the whipping cream, beat well.
In a separate bowl blend together the spinach and your cheeses.
Stir the spinach mixture into the eggs, season with salt and pepper, and pour the egg mixture into the prepared crust.
Put the pie in the oven for 60 minutes, or until the filling is set.
Allow it to cool for a bit before serving.
