Eggs are such a great, inexpensive source of protein. There are so many way you can cook them! And so many nutritious things you can put in them.
I know that quiche recipes are everywhere, but it’s such an easy dish, and such an inexpensive way to get some good protein on the table that I wanted to share this anyway.
It’s amazing right? Quiche feels like such an sophisticated dish, but it’s really nothing more than a few simple ingredients mixed together and baked. Five minutes prep time and, voila!
Gabriel and I have been making an effort to eat more green things, which makes this spinach quiche recipe perfect for breakfast (which for us is really brunch – we eat late).
I like to make it crustless – it’s less time consuming that way – but you can find an excellent gluten-free pie crust recipe here, if you’re so inclined.Print
Easy Spinach Quiche
- 8 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I like sharp cheddar)
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 2 T. Olive oil or butter
- 1 10oz package of frozen spinach
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°
Thaw and drain spinach.
Sautée onion in olive oil until translucent. Add spinach and continue cooking until moisture is evaporated.
Crack eggs into a mixing bowl and beat well. Add cheese.
Stir in spinach mixture and pour into buttered 9” pie plate.
If using a crust, roll out and prepare crust in pie plate. Prick bottom several times with a fork, and pour quiche mixture into it.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the middle is set.
