I’ve never made quiche before and it kind of blows my mind.

Had I know it was this easy and this delicious, I would’ve done it a long time ago.

The best part is that I can pull it out, heat it up and have an easy, healthy meal on hand for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Given how busy I am – I’m always down for a meal that gets that much mileage out of it.

Especially when it’s as delicious as this one!

I also love the variety this option provides – there are SO many combinations you could do!  Including just choking it full of as many veggies as possible – in my book, that’s always a good thing

Spinach and Feta Quiche

Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 9-inch pie crust
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 4 oz. feta cheese
  • Handful of reduced-fat part-skim mozzarella
  • 2 cups frozen, chopped spinach
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  • Cook spinach according to package instructions (I microwaved mine) then drain and allow it to cool.  Press down gently with paper towels to ring out any excess liquid that remains.
  • Combine eggs, milk and cheeses together and beat thoroughly.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Press drained spinach into the bottom of the pie crust then pour egg, milk and cheese mixture over the top.
  • Drizzle olive oil over the top then place in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.

I am all about the quick easy meals these days…and any meal that will give me some mileage! I don’t make quiche either and I don’t know why? I think I need to do that and I love that there are so many options when it comes add ins!

I hope you have a great day Cait!

Growing up, my mom’s ham and cheese quiche used to be my favorite meal. She would make two pies and the leftovers would be amazing, especially for breakfast. I haven’t made quiche in years, but it’s such a great recipe. Thanks for sharing!

You’re more than welcome! It definitely is a great meal – and I love the idea of adding meat of some sort in there. I may just need to give the ham and cheese one a try!

Yum! Who says quiche has to be unhealthy :) That’d taste so good as lunchtime leftovers mmm.

Reply

Cait January 16, 2013

I can attest that it actually WAS good as lunchtime leftovers! :) And I agree – it’s a perfectly healthy meal…and can be made even healthier using half egg whites, less cheese and more veggies and still taste delicious!

Definitely just pinned this and cannot wait to make it when we get home! I’ve actually been craving quiche [totally random but true] ever since I saw a recipe for a butternut quiche recipe… There’s something so comforting about it in the cooler months :)

Cait January 20, 2013

Totally agree – I completely consider it comfort food. Let me know what you think of it if you try it!

I succeed in doing a quiche! So happy about the result and TASTE! My boyfriend (and jealous co-workers) find it delicious! I’ll definitely do it again, maybe with other flavors, like ham.

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think
its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

Cait May 22, 2013

Hmm – thanks for letting me know. Which images are you referring to?

Hey, I thought quiche had high fat content? (yours looks delicious either way) :)
