If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that if I'm sharing a recipe, it must be easy to make. My husband is an amazing cook and the weekends are the best in our home when he takes over in the kitchen. However, during the week, although I do cook each night, my repertoire is limited. One dish I am good at making is quiche. It's quick and easy, and the best part is you can change what type of quiche each time but keep the basic recipe.
- one box frozen chopped spinach (I defrost it in the microwave for two minutes and then squeeze out all the liquid).
- 4-6 oz of cheddar cheese shredded
In a pie plate unroll pie crust (I use Pillsbury pie crust - it's so simple, you just unroll it into the pie plate) and spread the spinach and cheese into bottom of the pie crust.
- 3 eggs beat
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
Mix these ingredients together and pour over the spinach and cheese. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes. I usually wrap the edges in aluminum foil before putting it in the oven. It keeps the crust from getting too overdone. If you like the edges a little more brown, you can take the foil off the last five minutes.
You can make any variety just by changing out the spinach and cheese. I have made bacon and swiss, broccoli and cheddar, peppers and swiss...any combination you like. Hope you try this recipe. I promise...it's super easy and very yummy!

Hope you have a great weekend!!
