I don't make enough egg dishes. Eggs are so versatile. They are tasty and healthy too. They are also pretty cheap for a protein.
I made this dish a couple of weeks ago for a brunch. I used my pie pan, which I seldom use. I think that needs to change as well. Especially since my parents gave me a pie cookbook for my birthday several months ago, and I still haven't used it.
I have looked through the cookbook a few times though. There are lots of delicious sounding pies. The cookbook has a savory apple pie that I want to make. It also has a recipe for a raspberry pie that I plan on making. I once had a slice of raspberry pie, and it was one of the best pies I have ever eaten.
I didn't find this quiche recipe in a cookbook. I found this spinach quiche recipe at allrecipes.com. I find many of my recipes at that website. I added an extra egg, but otherwise I made the quiche as directed.
The ingredients are 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 onion, 1 10 ounce package of defrosted spinach, 6 eggs, 3 cups munster cheese, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. I added an extra egg because the mixture seemed dry.
I added the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. I chopped up the onions and cooked them, stirring occasionally, until the onions were soft. I squished out as much water from the defrosted spinach as I could and then added the spinach to the skillet. I continued to stir the mixture until most of the spinach's moisture had evaporated.
In a bowl, I combined the cheese, eggs, salt and pepper. The recipe only calls for five eggs, but I added another because the mixture seemed too dry.
I then mixed in the slightly cooled spinach mixture into the eggs.
I poured the spinach and egg mixture into a greased pie pan. I smoothed the mixture evenly in the pie pan.
I baked the quiche for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. I let it cool for ten minutes before serving. I also ate this quiche at room temperature, and it was tasty both ways.
This was a flavorful dish. It was filling. It was full of gooey cheese.
It had a soft, delicate texture. The onions and spinach gave the dish a tasty, savory flavor.
This was a good recipe. The flavors and textures were pleasing.
I would make this recipe again. I think it would be good with mushrooms too or other ingredients. I think you could really experiment with this recipe.
