I publicly declare my love for quiche

Yes, it's true. I love quiche. It's so easy to make, its great for any meal, and it keeps well for leftovers. Also, if you're having a dinner gathering you can make it in advance. I save time by using frozen pie shells because, honestly, I would rather pay $2 than take the time to make one myself and have to clean up that mess, and I like having them ready to go in the freezer any time. One of my favorites:

Spinach Quiche (serves six)
You will need:

4 eggs
1/2 cup milk (any will do and I have used soy in the past and that worked too)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (or regular salt, but I like garlic in almost everything)
black pepper
1 box frozen spinach (quick thaw and drain/squeeze out liquid)
1/3 cup chopped yellow onion
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 frozen deep dish pie shell

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and pour into shell. Keep a little bit of cheddar to garnish (melt on top just before the quiche is done, or if you have shredded parmesan instead, that's a nice touch too). Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Seriously, could it get any easier than that? I can't wait to eat my lunch today! (its the little things in life...)

P.S. My dog is cute.


  1. By the sound of it, Justin might become the first guy who is left in favor of what is essentially a breakfast pie.

  2. I tried the recipe and loved it! My mom made me a baby spinach and feta scramble this week when I was visiting and it was very tasty. Have you ever tried the egg-spinach-feta combination? The scramble was topped by fresh chopped tomatoes. You should give the combo a try (and maybe it could even be turned into a quiche).
