  • Melt butter in a medium cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in cherry tomatoes until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Mix in spinach; cook for 1 minute more.

  • Whisk cream, eggs, salt, pepper, and nutmeg together in a bowl.

  • Spread 1/2 of the Gouda cheese in the prepared pie plate and top with spinach mixture. Cover with egg mixture and sprinkle the remaining Gouda cheese on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until eggs are set and top is golden, about 25 minutes.

This is a really good basic crust-less quiche recipe. I started by looking for a quiche recipe that included cherry tomatoes because I had some I wanted to use up. I ended up adding more of everything because of the size pie plate I had, and it came out beautifully. I will be using it as my core quiche recipe from now on. Read More

I must admit that I haven't tasted it yet, because there was so much oil, I have had to drain the oil 3 separate times. Then, I baked again and drained again, and then baked again and drained again. I followed the recipe to the letter: butter and cheese exactly. I recommend a how far cheese instead and no butter. Read More

I absolutely loved this recipe, though find it on the salty side between the salt in the gouda cheese and the added salt. I'm going to try cutting the added salt in half, but otherwise this was easy, quick, and reheats very well. Read More

I made this using smoked gouda. Unfortunately I had to leave out the mushrooms because my son doesn't like them, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was easy and everyone loved it! Read More

DELICIOUS! Everyone gobbled it up!! Swapped Gouda for Le Gruyere cheese. I would just cut back on the salt next time Read More
