  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove and let cool. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add spinach and cook until heated through and dark green, about 5 minutes. Drain well and let cool.

  • Combine Swiss cheese and flour in a bag. Seal and shake until cheese is coated.

  • Whisk milk, eggs, salt, pepper, and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Stir in spinach and flour-coated Swiss cheese. Pour into the cooled pie shell.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until middle is set, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool slightly before slicing and serving.

Cook's Note:

To freeze ahead, bake quiche only 40 minutes, wrap tightly in foil, and freeze. To serve, thaw and bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Be sure it's completely thawed, or it might not heat up clear through. Individual slices also freeze well.

This was a great dish to make on a cold and stormy evening. I excluded some ingredients from the recipe to preparing it. I would gladly make it again with the same changes Read More

I made the recipe as is and we loved it! I had some trouble with the pie crust not getting too done but I think this would be great crustless as well. Read More
