Spinach and Mushroom Goat Cheese Quiche
IMG_0909IMG_0906IMG_0910
Tonight I made a quiche that was packed, possibly over packed, with spinach and mushrooms. Since we like goat cheese, I broke up large chunks and scattered them on the crust before pouring the egg mixture in. To get some color on the top I went with Parmesan cheese because I didn’t think it would compete with the goat cheese.

We enjoyed it for dinner but certainly great for breakfast or brunch. Also holds up well throughout the week. This savory quiche is packed with veggies all suspended in an omelet like egg pie with bursts of tangy goat cheese countered by the slightly sweet crust.

Ingredients:
Pie crust
Two handfuls of spinach
1/2 cup of chopped mushrooms
4 eggs
1 cup of milk
1/4 cup of Goat cheese
Parmesan Cheese to top

Directions:
1. Take your pie crust and use a fork to poke the crust so it won’t rise in the oven. You can also put beans or a pan on top of it to accomplish the same thing. Cook it according to the directions on the pie crust. Set aside and let it cool.

2. While the pie crust is baking, Take a saute pan and cook your spinach and mushrooms until they are tender. try to remove as must moisture as possible by squeezing it in a paper towel. Set this aside.

3. In a separate dish crack your eggs and milk and whisk it completely. To assemble your quiche break up the goat cheese and scatter it on the bottom. Next mix your spinach/mushrooms with the egg mixture and pour into the pie sheel. Mine was pretty packed. You may have extra. IMG_0903IMG_0904IMG_0901

4. Now protect your crust by wrapping foil around it so that it doesn’t over cook in the oven. Remember the pie crust is already cooked so you want to protect it. Top with Parmesan cheese to cover. Put in a 350 degree oven and cook for about 30-45 minutes. Just check it at the 30 minute mark and watch it until the eggs are solid and not giggly.

  1. Thanks for this great recipe! I made it tonight for dinner. I added sautéed cauliflower rice to it also. Turned out great! Easy and delicious!

    1. Thanks Gretchen for the feedback. I like the idea of adding the cauliflower rice. Where has that been all our lives? I love the broccoli rice also. Great way to trick the kids (or even adults) into eating their vegetables.
