Quiche recipe

I've had several requests from librarians on Twitter for a few recipes. One of them is my quiche recipe. I was able to tweet it, but I thought I would also post the full recipe here for librarians and non-librarians alike. Enjoy this any day of the week.

Saturday quiche

Spinach or Broccoli Quiche

3 large eggs
3/4 cup milk (or heavy whipping cream for a a richer quiche)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 box frozen spinach or broccoli
2 cups cheese, shredded (mozzerella, any white Italian cheese blend)
1 pie shell

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Open and remove frozen spinach or broccoli from box, place in a microwave safe mixing bowl and cook for 4-5 minutes. Drain to remove excess water.

In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk or heavy whipping cream, and black pepper. Stir in 1 cup cheese. Stir in drained veggies . Stir in remaining cup of cheese

Pour spinach mixture into pie shell. Place filled pie shell on a cookie sheet. Bake 45-55 minutes until golden brown. Allow quiche to cool before slicing. Slices well with a pizza cutter.


Remember you can be as creative as you'd like with your quiche.
