Quiche is one of those meals you can throw together with anything you have lying around.  Change the type of cheese, substitute onions or shallots for the green onions, omit the spinach, use ham instead of bacon, add some mushrooms…use your imagination!  And this recipe is wonderful because it will make 2 quiches. You can freeze one or give it to a friend!


Cheesy Spinach Quiche

makes 2 quiches


2 refrigerated pie crusts (or homemade if that’s your thing)

2 slices bacon, chopped

3 green onions, chopped

1 bunch baby spinach

8 ounces Gouda, shredded

2 ounces Parmesan, shredded

8 eggs

2 cups milk

1 cup heavy cream

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper


Preheat oven to 350.


Cook bacon over medium heat until almost cooked.  Add green onions and spinach and saute for about 5 minutes, or until spinach is wilted.  Meanwhile,  whisk together eggs, milk, cream, nutmeg, and salt and pepper.  Stir in shredded cheese.


Fit pie crusts into 2 pie plates or tart pans, crimp edges.  Place half the spinach mixture in each pie shell.  Then add half the egg mixture to each (making sure cheese is evenly distributed).   Cook quiches for about 45 minutes  or until middle is set.  Let quiche stand for 15 minutes before serving.
