My kids love this easy quiche. I serve it with fresh cantaloupe for a light weeknight supper or weekend lunch. Enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring the pie crust to room temperature.

  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; add the onion and cook until onion becomes transparent, about 5 minutes. Combine the spinach with the onion, cover the skillet; turn off the heat, and set aside.

  • Unroll the crust and press to fit into a 9 inch pie plate. Trim the edges.

  • Beat the eggs in a large bowl until light colored and frothy. Add the garlic, thyme, basil, cheeses, and spinach mixture, and stir until well blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour the spinach mixture into the prepared pie crust.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the top is golden brown, and an inserted tooth pick comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

I can only give this recipe 4 stars because of my modifications. I used a deep dish pie pan. added only 6 eggs and a splash more of milk. Next a handful of Cheddar cheese, onion powder instead of onion and I sauted the spinach in garlic and butter. Finally, I added 3 strips of cooked bacon crumbled. Read More

It was a good recipe but it had too much egg and herbs for my taste. In the future I will be reducing the eggs to 6 the herbs to 1/2 teaspoon each and adding an additional 1/2 cup of cheese. My boyfriend thought it tasted great the way it was and actually ate over half of it in one night. He said it tasted much better than the pre-made frozen mini-quiches. Read More

Very good. I had enough for two quiche pies but the garlic was a little much. (And I like garlic). Next time I will use just a dash of garlic powder instead of a clove fresh. Read More

Made the following changes based on reviews. tsp thyme (was just enough) 6 eggs (a bit dry next time will use all 8) threw the garlic in with the onion to cook for the last min used 1 C cheese. It was awesome and so easy. I loved the flavor and can not wait to make it again. Read More

Made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious! Everyone in the family really liked it--even our 2 year old daughter. Well she ate a big bite then wasn't too interested in more until we told her it was green eggs and ham! It was a big hit and we'll make this again! Read More

It turned out well. I am a novice chef to the extreme. I didn't use Romano cheese but added Feta and Cheddar. My creation was more a three cheese spinach quiche. I think I used a little too much spinach and the garlic was a bit much but overall we enjoyed this quiche very much!! Read More
