Spinach Quiche

 It has been forever since I updated this blog, nearly two months.  I just got busy with school and other projects and just couldn't carve out enough time to write about what I have been making.  But rest assured I have still been cooking.  Now that I have time to update the blog I'll be doing so with more regularity.

Since I'm in Texas I have a lot less cooking equipment, but I am still going to try to make things.  Anyway, the recipe for today is a Spinach Quiche.  Here is the link to the recipe.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) can mushrooms, drained
  • 1 (6 ounce) package herb and garlic feta, crumbled
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Saute garlic and onion in butter until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Stir in spinach, mushrooms, feta and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into pie crust.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into the pastry shell, allowing egg mixture to thoroughly combine with spinach mixture.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle top with remaining Cheddar cheese, and bake an additional 35 to 40 minutes, until set in center. Allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.

The Process

So it's been awhile since I made this, but I will attempt to discuss it.  

The first step was to cook up the onions and garlic, which is shown below.

 Sprinks was not at all interested in the cooking, but she did find a box that she enjoyed sitting in.

So I then mixed the Spinach up with the onion mix.  I used a lot less spinach than the recipe called for.  Probably about half.  

I put the pie crust in two pie crusts.  

I put half of the spinach in one and half in the other, then poured the egg mixture in them.

Then into the oven they went.

After 15 minutes I added the cheese to the quiche's

Then they were done.

Here is one slice.  I actually really liked this dish.  I liked it better the next day reheated, but it was really pretty good. It was a little bit shallow, so I guess next time I might add more spinach.
