Asparagus Spinach Feta Quiche

For Easter morning I wanted to make a quiche. I figured it would be a two meal day and the quiche would satisfy us for several hours. Also because I am making a ham I have several ham dishes lined up so I wanted to go more veggie with this quiche.

You can really use any veggies or fruits you like but just try to control the moisture content. Asparagus and Spinach were my choice. I also like using Feta or Goat cheese in my quiche. Feta holds up nicely where goat cheese will most likely melt more.

What happens is that the egg will sink to the bottom the veggies will be the middle layer and the Feta will rise to the top. So each bite will change unless you get all three layers. Some will be more salty, others more pie crusty, eggy, vegtabley. (not words, I know)

This recipe was adapted by Two Peas & Their Pod.
Ingredients:
Pie crust (used store bought 9″)
5 Eggs
1/2 cup of diced Asparagus
1/2-3/4 cup of spinach
5 green onions (diced)
3/4 cup of Feta cheese
1/4 cup of Mozzarella
1 cup of milk

Directions:
1. If you are using a store bought pie crust follow the instructions. You know prick with a fork and bake it for 12 minutes until golden brown. Set aside.

2. In a skillet first cook your spinach alone. Let it wilt completely. Remove and put into a towel or paper towels. Squeeze out all the moisture you can. Now to that skillet add the white and light green parts of the green onion with asparagus and the cooked spinach. Dice that spinach before putting it back into the skillet.

3. Whisk your eggs in a large bowl with the milk. Salt and Pepper (be careful because the feta is salty) Combine in the cheeses. IMG_9801

4. To assemble you take the baked pie crust and add the veggies along with the green onion parts now. Pour the egg, milk and cheese mixture atop the veggies. Place into a 375 degree oven uncovered. If you prefer non browned you can use foil the first 20 minutes and then remove. You want some of the moisture to dissipate.

It will be puffy looking when you remove it from the oven. Let it rest for 10 minutes and it should settle.
