Quiche Anyone?

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.
The quiche I made yesterday was spinach and cheddar.  I usually prefer spinach and swiss, but only had cheddar in the house.  That's another great thing about this recipe...I can make it with whatever I happen to have in the house.  Here is the 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!
On another note, I received the yard of fabric I bought at Calico Corners earlier in the week.  It's from Dwell Studios called Vintage Blossom in Citrine.  Calico Corners is having a 20% off sale, so I got a great deal on this awesome fabric.  I'm off to make the pillows for my new sitting area in my dining room.  Can't wait to show you them next week.  For now, you can see my new sitting area here.

Don't forget my Swing into Spring party link is open through the end of today.  You can click here to join in the fun.

Hope you have a great weekend!!

That looks like a quick and easy recipe. Using the Pillsbury crust would be such a time saver- I have to try that! Love the new fabric by the way. It's so perfect for the season.

Yum! I love how quiche can be dressed up for a dinner party, or go rustic for a night home with the kids. For spring, I like putting asparagus in a quiche.

Love the new fabric! Gorgeous! Can't wait to see the pillows. Thanks for sharing.

You saved the day Judy! I was just trying to decide what to make for dinner tonight and this is it! We call it egg pie at our house because if I call it a quiche the kids think it sounds too weird to eat. :-) That fabric is just absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to see how the pillows turn out!
