spinach quiche recipe.

ok, so remember that time i made a pie with this crust:

and i said it was oddly salty and would probably work better as a savory dish (like quiche)? well it turns out, i was right. i made a quiche with it a couple times now and its fantastic. in fact, i like to think ive perfected my quiche recipe and its become a regular staple in the meyers house. even though its not the fastest dinner and maybe uses a few more dishes than id like it to, quiche is probably my new favorite weekday dinner because we never finish the whole thing and it makes FANTASTIC leftovers for lunch the next day. 

its been a while since ive posted a recipe, so i thought id share this one with you:

spinach quiche:
(serves 2-4)


one unbaked pie shell (I used pilsbury gluten free, but you can use whatever you like, or do without, it works fine without a crust too)
1 small onion (or half a large onion)
3 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup milk
1/2 pound frozen spinach (or an entire ten ounce box)
about 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (whatever kind you like, cheddar and/or mozzarella is yummy, I'm also a big fan of using pepperjack)
1 teaspoon herbs de provence

here's what you do:

preheat oven to 400 degrees. start by thawing your spinach and preparing your pie crust, set both aside for now. next, finely chop the onions and garlic and saute in olive oil until they start to caramelize. while thats going whisk together eggs, milk, mayonnaise, herbs de provence, and 1 cup of cheese. next take your thawed spinach and put it in a piece of cheesecloth or a tea towel and squeeze out ALL of the liquid. add this and the onions/garlic to the egg mixture and pour into the pie shell. top with remaining cheese and bake for 45 minutes. 

hope you like it!

stay tuned for tomorrow because its my 100th post!
