Just a quiche

My grams made The Best quiche in the world.  Sadly I don't have her recipes to replicate them, but I am always on a search to find recipes that I remember and try to duplicate what she made.  I've come close, but never quite nailed it on the head with quiche.
Grams specialty was Quiche Lorraine, but today I'm going with something a little different.

Spinach Quiche.

Yummy and cheesy and full of spinach goodness this is what we had tonight for dinner :)

1  9-inch frozen pie crust
2 cups Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 Tbsp. flour
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1 cup milk
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp. salt
Dash pepper

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, place it in the oven and preheat to 375°F.

Stir the cheese with flour in medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into crust.

Bake 1 hour or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.


You can add whatever kind of cheese you like to this, I made this again last night and used mozzarella and provolone cheese because that's what I had in the fridge.  I also added some sauteed mushrooms and onions to the mix.

Also, if you want a lighter quiche you can use either egg beaters or you can use 1 whole egg and egg whites for the rest.

Here's a slice of last nights quiche with mushroom added :)
