Spinach Quiche

Spinach Quiche – Make this easy Spinach Quiche with your favorite pie crust and serve it for a special breakfast or brunch!

Spinach Quiche

OR PIE! 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.

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.

Also looking forward to having our Spinach and BACON Quiche, again, real soon!

ENJOY!

  1. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment. Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!

  2. Christ is born and Happy New Year Kate.
    Your spinach – cheese pie sounds delicious. simply to make and gone in seconds 🙂 thanks for sharing
    congrats on top 9 also

    hope you’re having a wonderful day

  3. Do you really say tomahto? Because I’m guessing that was pooetic license you were using, but I can’t tell inflection over the internet, and really, I’ve never met anyone who says tomahto! It ruins the whole basis for the song, you know? Same with potahto. I mean, I suppose it’s enough that everyone understands what it means, but to a literalist, well, I’ve just got some issues with that song.
    But I have no issues with this pie. Wow; that is a genius use of leftovers, by all means.

    1. hehehe I don’t say tomahto 🙂 I had an English professor in college, he was 73 years old, he said tomahto, potahto, and ab-dough-men for abdomen. 🙂 Apart from him, no, I’ve never met anyone else that talks that way.

      I’m glad you like my pie!

  4. This looks great! I’m like you … I HATE throwing away food … so getting creative is a must when you have leftover ingredients from a dish you’ve made. I love this quiche idea! AND I can’t WAIT to see your recipes from your Eastern Orthodox Christmas. I spent Christmas with an old friend from Serbia a few years back and had some of the best food of my life! 😀

  5. this absolutely looks outstanding! Great start to the new year!
